How to make a delicious dinner in under 5 minuets with 4 ingredients.

5 minute dinner 4 ingredient pork chile verde

4-Ingredient Crockpot Pork Chile Verde

If your anything like me you have no time to make a fancy dinner.

I have a lot going on in my life. I’m sure if I made a list of everything I do in a day it would not look very long, but the days seem to fly by nevertheless. I work until two at our family’s construction company doing office work, right after that it’s time to get kids from school. There is just enough time when we get home to do home work, maybe check the mail and shove some kind of snack down my throat (usually not a very healthy one) before we are off to soccer for one of the kids practices. If its my daughter who is 14 I can just drop her little butt off  but my son who is 10 (and my baby) I still try to stay at the field.

Now that it is about 5:30 – 6:30pm (depending on how long the coach decides to pep-talk to unfocused kids) its time to answer that dreadful question “Whats for dinner?” I HATE this question! I either am too tired at this point to cook because I played good wife/employee at my husbands construction company half the day and soccer mom/ tutor (I can’t even do half the school work that comes home with my kids without Siri). If I was super prepared on any given day and I actually had a plan for dinner its one of the (maybe) 5 meals that we rotate weekly. I know I’m sick of the same old 5 meals, Im sure my family is also.

No time to make dinner?

We are busy moms, or busy in our careers, maybe busy moms with careers. Life is just busy and dinner is just a pain. Unless you have extra time and or love to cook and plan meals your most likely just like me. I need easy meals that are somewhat healthy to serve my family.  The crockpot is always my best friend, I can throw the ingredients in, set the time and let it do its thing all day until we are ready to eat.

So here is one of my favorite weeknight super easy 4-ingredient Pork Chile Verde
