Servings: 10 enchiladas
For the Enchiladas
- 10 Corn tortillas give or take a few
- 2 cups leftover pulled pork (or whatever you choose)
- ½ cup sliced onions
- ¼ cup sliced jalapeno
- ¼ cup roasted green chiles
- 8 ounces shredded pepper jack cheese
For the Sauce
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 1 tsp cumin
- 2 tbsp green chiles, pureed
- ¼ tsp chipotle chili pepper
- ½ tsp salt
- Cornstarch, if needed, for thickening.
- Pico de gallo, avocado, salsa, for topper if desired
For the enchiladas
Over medium heat in a large saute pan, heat pulled pork until warm and pieces are shredding off. Add onions, peppers, and chiles and saute until soft- About 5-7 minutes.
Heat corn tortillas in the microwave a couple at a time, for about 15 seconds. Place about 2 tablespoons of filling onto a corn tortillas, add shredded cheese, and roll tightly. Place rolled enchilada in a roasting pan (the one I used was about 11X7 but 13x9 works too). Make sure you place the "seam" of the enchilada down so it doesn't unroll.Repeat until all stuffing is used. Heat tortillas a few at a time. so they are hot. If you heat them all at once, they will cool before you get to them.
For the Sauce
Over medium heat, mix sour cream, chicken stock, pureed green chile, cumin, chipotle chili pepper, salt, and pepper in a saute pan.
Mix well and bring to a slow boil/simmer. Let bubble for about 3-5 minutes so it will thicken. If it doesn't thicken to your liking, add a small mixture of cornstarch sludge (about a tablespoon of cornstarch dissolved in a tiny bit of water). Make sure to taste the sauce as you go so you can make adjustments if you need!
Pour sauce over rolled enchiladas. Top with plenty of shredded cheese.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
Remove from the oven, and serve. Be careful of the molten hot cheese!
Top with pico de gallo, salsa, avocado, guacamole, more sour cream... whatever you like!
