Pulled Pork Enchiladas

Some meals are so good that it's a bad thing. Like these pork enchiladas that tasted SO GOOD that I was forced to go back for seconds. Seriously, this may be the best tasting thing I have ever made, and I didn't even like enchiladas that much before. Even my boyfriend liked them, and he doesn't like Mexican food! I attribute the success of this recipe to the fact that pulled pork is good in anything, and my homemade tomato sauce was an ingredient in the enchilada sauce. So please, I beg you, try this recipe. You'll only regret it if you're on a diet. --AnglophileLV

Pork Enchiladas

1 lb pulled pork (Costco has pulled pork with no bbq sauce)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp oregano
A dash of garlic powder
3 slices munster cheese, cut in half
6 tortillas
1 cup grated cheddar cheese (or Colby jack, or a mix of cheeses) for the top
1 packet of enchilada sauce (Kroger Enchilada Sauce Mix, original)
8 oz Tomato Sauce (I left out the bacon when I made my tomato sauce for this)
1 ½ cups water

Preheat oven to 350'.
Place ½ slice of Munster cheese on the first tortilla, followed by a few fork-fulls of the pulled pork – don’t overpack. Wrap it like a burrito and place it in a baking dish, seam side down. Repeat for the rest of the 6 tortillas.

To make the enchilada sauce, follow the directions on the back of the packet. I actually highly recommend the Ralph’s brand enchilada sauce – Kroger. The sauce turned out incredibly well, and I wouldn’t change a thing. So, mix the packet’s contents with 8 oz tomato sauce (Roast your own!) and the water, bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Then pour it all over the tortillas you just wrapped.

Top with cheese.

Bake until the cheese is melted, around 15 minutes.

I know what I'm gonna make tonight! albeit it's going to cheese enchiladas with a homemade sauce.

Attempting the homemade sauce right now..i just know this: paprika, cumin, oregano, tomato paste, red chilli powder and green chillies...we'll see how it turns out.

Sounds like a winning combination to me! Onion and garlic powders would be good too.

this sounds sooo good and easy - and great for my belly, which loves pork - my favorite white meat
