Don’t you love a tasty hearty meal that looks like you were in the kitchen for hours, but actually the dish comes together in under 30 minutes?  Lately that has been my cooking criteria, food that is scrumptious, filling, and simple to make!

As the summer ends and schedules change, I bet that’s what you’ll be gravitating towards too!

This Skillet Chicken Enchiladas recipe has been a family favorite dish for years.  I like it because it’s filling and tasty as well as versatile!  I like to change the green sauce to red and swap the chicken for beef for a completely different tasting meal.

Which is probably why I like this Pork Chops Mushroom Cream Sauce recipe so much too!  I’ve made this dish three times in the past month, except each time I use a different cut of meat; chicken, beef, and now pork!

Chicken is usually what I use most often.  It cooks quick and it’s super lean and filling, but guess what?  “The other white meat” is just as good!

Looking for a vegetable to serve with this meal?  How about trying these Parmesan Roasted Green Beans?!

    Pork chops and a creamy mushroom sauce is one perfect cozy meal. Today is rainy and this sounds just like what we need on a big bed of cheesy cauliflower mash! Pinning for later!

    That mushroom cream sauce looks divine! I’d dine on that with the mashed potatoes alone! Yum! My family will love these pork chops too!

      For leftovers I had cauliflower mashed potatoes with the mushroom sauce. It was just as delicious without meat!
