These hearty carnitas are delicious and easy to simmer in a slow cooker all day long. Sometimes, instead of using tortillas, I place the pork on top of shredded lettuce for a tasty salad. —Lisa Glogow, Aliso VIejo, California
Pork slowly stews with jalapenos, onion, green enchilada sauce and spices in this flavor-packed Mexican dish. It's great on its own or stuffed in a warm tortilla with sour cream, grated cheese or olives on the side. —Kimberly Burke, Chico, California
Guests will go crazy when you serve two heaping pans of this cheesy nacho casserole, with tender chunks of slow-cooked pork. You don’t need to worry about filling the chip bowl—the tortilla chips are conveniently baked right in the dish! —Kelly Byler, Goshen, Indiana
"This heartwarming one-dish meal is adapted from a Pennsylvania Dutch recipe," says Donna Wilkinson of Clarksburg, Maryland. "I start the pot roast cooking before I leave for church, add vegetables when I get home, and then just sit back and relax until it's done."
Loaded with tangy flavor, this is a lighter version of a favorite restaurant-style sandwich. If you don’t have a panini maker, tuck the sandwiches under the broiler until the bread is browned and the cheese melted. —Robin Haas, Cranston, Rhode Island
