Whether you have some quality ground beef you would like to use or you just want to cook up the leftovers from your Sunday pork roast, this easy enchilada recipe is a tasty way to use it.
This time I decided to give some pork shoulder leftovers new life. The evening before my wife and I cooked up a large pork shoulder that was way too much for the two of us.
This enchilada recipe offered the perfect way to use up the leftovers.
I don’t like simply heating up leftovers and eating the same meal again. Having an enchilada recipe like this to hand is always a good thing.
Make this enchilada recipe your own…
This pork enchilada recipe works great with the filling of your choice. From game to beef to prawns, use the filling you like. The secret to success is in using the freshest ingredients and of course that authentic Mexican enchilada sauce.
I cooked these enchiladas the traditional way with freshly made corn tortillas but flour tortillas work well too. If using flour tortillas, there is no need to fry them as you do with corn tortillas.
Here in the UK it can be difficult to fine corn tortillas. I ordered my freshly made tortillas online from The Cool Chilli Company.
Enchiladas are usually not very spicy. That said, I did use a little more chilli powder than stated in this recipe. If you like spicy food, use a little more chilli!
Why is this enchilada recipe so easy?
When making Mexican sauces like the one used here, I would normally do it the traditional way. I’d roast and then soak a selection of Mexican dried chillies before blending them into the sauce.
For these pork enchiladas, I simply used chilli powder. Sometimes it’s good and convenient to cheat.
