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!”
Tips to make Pulled Pork Enchiladas
- You can use leftover pulled pork or make it fresh, either way is great
- If you can’t make your own refried beans, use canned. When I use canned, I always add a little olive oil to the beans to thin them out some
- I love using two enchilada sauces, but you can use one sauce if you prefer
- Use fajita sized flour tortillas as sometimes bigger is better 🙂
How to make Pulled Pork Enchiladas
I gather my wok and get the ingredients ready. I also preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Process shots for making the enchiladas:
- Onion and red bell pepper chopped in small chunks
- Onions and peppers sautéd for 8 minutes
- Tortillas smeared with refried beans
- Sautéd veggies on beans
- Pulled pork on top
I dollop some enchilada sauce in the bottom of my baking dish, roll up the pulled pork enchiladas and place them seam side down in the baking dish!
More process shots:
- Just rolled enchiladas in the baking dish
- Red enchilada sauce slathered on the enchiladas
- Sour cream enchilada sauce dolloped on in three lines. I thickened the sauce so it wouldn’t spread but stay in the lines
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.
Bake the pulled pork enchiladas 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!
