What to do with leftover pork

One of my favorite things is to make stacked enchiladas. There is not a recipe just a method.

Gather together the following:

your leftover pork or even beef
grated jack or cheddar or both if you so desire
green enchilada sauce (I like green sauce with pork and red with beef but that is just my preference)
sauteéd onions
cilantro, chopped

No salt because there is plenty of sodium in the green sauce or you can make your own green sauce for future use.

I like to crisp up the pork by heating it up in a skillet then adding a bit of the green sauce.

Start layering first place a corn tortilla on a cookie sheet.
Add the pork, a few of the onions, a few tablespoons of the green sauce, cheese, cilantro, another tortilla.
Repeat those steps until you have reached, oh maybe five tortillas in the stack; top off with cheese.

Bake in a 350* preheated oven for about 20 minutes and the cheese is melted and slightly browned.

This method was first originated by my sister Moon and it's a real favorite with Mr Doodles

Please don't give me bad marks for this photo I know it is awful

I'd love to take credit but I think I first saw this done by a friend from New Mexico. Maybe that's how they're made there.

It all sounds scrumptious. I have made green sauce before, but yours sounds better.

I'm going to be bigger than the side of a barn if I don't quit making all the recipes on the blogs I read.

But I know they are all going to be good because they've been tried by great cooks.

LOL. That image does look a bit like an uncooked haggis! LOL

Somehow I have never made an enchilada. And it's funny because I was just talking about this with one of my friends who loves Mexican food.

I always thought it was complicated to make, but now I see that it is actually a cinch! Thanks for the enlightenment!

City Girl you are right but it tastes nothing like cooked or uncooked hagis bleeeeeeeech!!! I would never make it as a food stylist.

No pouting Jeff I wish we could deliver.
