Pulled Pork Enchiladas

The Smoking Meat Forums had a Throwdown for its members to post a meal made out of leftovers. I had left over pulled pork and I made a Pulled Pork Enchiladas.
The ingredients are:

  • 1 tablespoon Oil
  • 1/2 cup Onion fine chop
  • 1 clove Garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon plus one teaspoon Chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon Oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups chopped fresh, canned or frozen tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoon Lime juice
  • 1 pound pulled pork
  • 1 tablespoon Oil
  • 3/4 cup Pepper colour of your choice, sliced
  • 1 small Jalapeno pepper fine chop
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 6 tortillas 8 inch diameter
  • 1 3/4 cup Old cheddar cheese grated

I put the seasoning, onion and garlic on a plate.

I preheated a fry pan with the oil in it and cooked the onions until they were soft and the spices were fragrant, about 3 minutes. I added the tomatoes and lime juice. I brought it to a boil and then turned to a simmer. Simmer for 15 minutes uncovered. Set the tomato sauce aside and clean the fry pan.

Put the oil in the fry pan and saute the pepper and jalapeno pepper until just soft. Add the peppers to the pulled pork.

Deglaze the pan with the water and add it to the tomato sauce.
Add 3/4 cup of the grated cheddar to the pulled pork and peppers.

Put a thin layer of sauce over the bottom of a casserole pan.
Take a tortilla and spread a large spoonful of sauce on it.
Add 1/6 of the pork mixture.

Roll it up and put it in a long casserole. Repeat for remaining 5 tortillas.

Put the remaining sauce over the enchiladas. Cover with foil and put the enchiladas in a 375 F oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and put back in the oven for 10 minutes.

I like to let it sit for a few minutes before serving.

The Verdict

Absolutely delicious. Ooey, gooey good with a great taste from the smoked pulled pork. I’ve found a new favourite.
