Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion (chopped small but not diced)
  • 1 red bell pepper (chopped small but not diced)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons garlic paste (or 2 whole cloves, crushed)
  • 1 ½ - 2 cups pulled pork
  • 8 flour tortillas (or corn tortillas)
  • 1 cup refried beans (or more, to be slathered in the enchiladas)
  • 1.5 cup sour cream enchilada sauce (or more)
  • .50 cup salsa verde
  • .50 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)

Instructions

Make it!

  • Heat a wok or sauté pan on medium. Once it heats up, add oil and let that heat up until it shimmers
  • Add onion, pepper, garlic and salt
  • Sauté for 5 - 8 minutes - my wok cooks it in 5
  • Turn oven on to 350 F
  • Slather some refried beans on the tortillas
  • Add veggies and then a healthy serving of pulled pork on top
  • Spoon a few tablespoons of the pulled pork sauce in a baking dish - or use enchilada sauce. This will prevent the enchiladas from sticking
  • Roll up enchiladas and place seam side down in a baking dish
  • Make sour cream enchilada sauce
  • Ladle as much sauce as you like on the enchiladas and sprinkle as much cheese on top
  • Bake for 25 minutes
  • Plate enchiladas
  • Eat
  • Smile
  • Enjoy

Notes

Use as little or as much refried beans and pulled pork as you like.
Helpful tips
  • 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.
  • Use fajita sized flour tortillas because they're best for making enchiladas.
  • I am using shredded cheddar both in the enchilada sauce and on the enchiladas because it was what I had on hand. But I do alternate between Mexican cheese blend and cheddar normally.
