Prepare to indulge in the deliciousness of freezer-friendly pulled pork, smothered in enchilada sauce, and adorned with a generous layer of melted cheese and caramelized onions, all sandwiched between soft, fluffy buns. These Mexican Pork Rolls are a part of my series, where I’ll guide you on creating five Mexican freezer-friendly meals for four people in just one hour, all for a budget-friendly $50, using a single batch of Pork Carnitas.
Here’s what you can expect from these Mexican Pulled Pork Rolls:
- Perfect for serving a crowd. A single batch of Pork Carnitas can yield between 25 to 30 of these rolls, although this recipe is designed for a batch of 4.
- Freezer-friendly, making them an excellent option for advance preparation.
- Wallet-friendly, keeping your budget in check.
- Simple to prepare.
- Elevated with a gourmet twist featuring those delectable caramelized onions, a frugal yet delightful way to add a gourmet touch.
I’d happily meet my end buried beneath a mountain of these rolls. My first bite was pure ecstasy, with my eyes rolling back in sheer pleasure.
These sliders are crafted using soft white buns, piled high with Pork Carnitas, mixed with Enchilada Sauce, and then crowned with gooey, melted cheese and those heavenly caramelized onions. Let me tell you, those caramelized onions are the true stars of this slider, elevating it from merely great to out-of-this-world! The 12 minutes it takes to caramelize the onions is an investment well worth it.
(PS: To appease any purists reading this, traditional caramelized onions would take 40 to 50 minutes or more to achieve on very low heat. This is a quicker version that, in my opinion, is incredibly delicious for the time invested, so I opt for this method rather than the “proper” way!)
Since this recipe is part of a series, I used Homemade Enchilada Sauce, which I also used in other recipes within this collection. While store-bought is an option, I highly recommend trying the homemade version because it takes only 10 minutes and can be prepared simultaneously with caramelizing the onions.
Now, let me introduce you to this series! It’s a guide where I’ll demonstrate how to prepare five Mexican freezer-friendly meals for four people in just one hour, all for a budget of $50, using one batch of Pork Carnitas. Each meal serves four, so if you’re cooking for two, you’ll have enough for ten meals! This menu is incredibly cost-effective, as it relies on many common ingredients, and a little bit of Pork Carnitas goes a long way. I hope you find it exceptionally useful!
