This pulled pork enchiladas recipe is so succulent and delicious! One of the best things about it, other than the pulled pork, is the two sauces! Yum.
I make pulled pork a lot! I prefer a savory pulled pork as opposed to the sweet version. I think it’s because, if I want to eat something sweet, I’ll have dessert or chocolate. I can take a little sweetness to my food, as in this delicious bourbon meatball appetizer recipe, but I just can’t do overly sweet.
What about you? Do you like sweet in your food? Leave me a comment to let me know since I claim loudly to the world, “I am nosy!”
I’ve Become My Grandmother
When I was growing up, we lived in a two family house. My grandmother Bena lived on the first floor and my family of 7, lived on the second and third floors. The front windows in my grandmother’s apartment were gloriously tall, practically from floor to ceiling.
Well, my Nana used to stand at the window and look out at the ‘doings’ in the neighborhood. She’d often open her front door and come to the front of the wrap around porch to yell at us for doing something questionable.
A few times, when I was in her apartment with her, I’d ask, “How come you look out the front window so much?” Invariably, she would answer, “I don’t looking out of the windows.”
Um, I could see her looking. Not sure why she denied it.
She’d also claim that all the neighbors were busy bodies. Of course, by that time, I’d wizened up and didn’t say anything in response.
I’m smart that way. I know who snuck us cookies and treats!
Now, how have I become her?
Every SINGLE time I go up the stairs of our apartment from our first floor to the second floor, I look out the decorative window while going up the stairs. Every time! Even when the shade is pulled. Why the heck-in-doodie do I feel the need to do that? Not sure since I don’t really see much ‘doings’.
BUT, I do sit on my couch as I write blog posts and when I hear a car coming down the street or a neighbor out on their porch, I look. Not that I get up to look, because I can see perfectly fine from where I sit.
I Learn real Good
I used to tell Christopher, “So and so is having a hard time going up and down the stairs, I think her knees are getting bad.”
Or, “Did you know that such and such got a new dog?”
He’d laugh at me and sometimes he would call me Gladys Kravitz (Google Gladys if you don’t know her), so I stopped relaying the goings on in the neighborhood. He can be ignorant if he wants to, but I want to know, because I’m knowsy!!
On to the pulled pork enchiladas recipe
I start by cutting an onion and a red bell pepper in small chunks. I place my wok on the stove and turn the heat on medium. Once it has heated up, I add 2 tablespoons olive oil and let that heat up before dumping in the veggies.
I sauté them with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 2 teaspoons garlic paste for about 8 minutes.
Assembling the Pulled Pork Enchiladas
I heat up my leftover pulled pork, gather the flour tortillas, refried beans, and enchilada sauces.
I smear a bunch of beans on the tortillas.
Next, comes the cooked onion and bell pepper.
And lastly, I top it was some scrumptious pulled pork.
I roll up the pulled pork enchiladas and place them all in a baking dish!
Time to turn the oven on 350 degrees F.
They look so cozy all nestled together in the baking dish, don’t they?
I generously dollop the enchilada sauce on top of the pulled pork enchiladas.
Time to spoon some sour cream sauce on top of the red enchilada sauce. I purposely made the sour cream sauce thicker than I usually do because I wanted it to stay in a line and not spread.
I shook some parmesan cheese on top. I didn’t want to use other cheeses because the two sauces together are enough! Trust me, you won’t miss it.
Into the oven the pulled pork enchiladas go! I bake them for 25 minutes.
I plop some refried beans on a plate, grab some guacamole and put the rest of the onion and pepper mixture that I didn’t use in the enchiladas in a little bowl for consumption.
Time to serve the pulled pork enchiladas. The sour cream sauce will get a little ‘crusty’ but not to worry, it doesn’t affect the taste. Not one bit! So delicious!
Let’s look at another view!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as Christopher and I do!
