    I love pulled pork and I love Enchiladas. Pulled pork enchiladas had to be made.

    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 cheddar to the pork.

    Put a thin layer of sauce over the bottom of a casserole pan.

    Take a tortilla and spread a spoonful of sauce on it.

    Add 1/6 of the pork mixture.

    Roll up and put in the casserole. Repeat with the remaining 5 tortillas.

    Spread the remaining sauce over the enchiladas.

    Cover it with foil and put it in a 375 F oven for 30 minutes.

    Take the foil off and sprinkle the cheese over the enchiladas.

    Put it back in the oven for 10 minutes. 

    The Verdict

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

    I love most Mexican food but have been intimidated as far as trying to pull it off.  You have made it seem do-able.
  4. Nice way to use leftovers. It looks very TASTY!

    What a simple and tasty looking recipe Disco! I've done a very similar recipe, but with smoked and shredded beef chuck roast instead of PP, which is equally delicious. Thanks for sharing such a well-detailed process.. Very nicely done sir...points for you!

    Thanks for the points, Adam. However, let's face it, when do we not need to smoke a butt?
    Thanks, oldschool. I love enchiladas.
    Thanks for the point, Red. However, how cruel of you to suggest putting shredded chuck in the enchiladas. Guess what I have to do now.

    It really looks good! I have been here and seen the post a few times and I just realized I didn't say anything. Now thats a first, me not saying anything?

    I think I saw it first on your blog page.

    Pulled pork is so versatile, and I think Mexican is a great way to go.

    'Course anything you fix is always a crowd pleaser.

    Thanks again for your post Disco, and the encouragement to give it a shot.  It's been a while since I smoked a butt and so didn't have any left over Pulled Pork and so I used chicken.

    I'll post up a new thread about the cook but here is proof that it did happen.

    Thanks for the great recipe Disco - finally got around to getting some pre-frigid pulled pork out of the deep freeze and trying it out.  Only modifications were an extra jalapeno and I added a bit of jalapeno colby jack I had left to the cheddar.  Turned out great!

  18. That looks Great Briggy,    Pulled pork is pretty versatile  Son does Taco all the time

    Nice thread & tutorial Disco..... Very nice ! Not sure how I almost missed this, but glad I caught it !


  20. Looks outstanding!  I love anything Mexican/southwestern, we use up our leftover PP or chix all the time for tacos, fajitas, etc.   Nice spice mix too Sir!
