I used shredded pork from the pork carnitas recipe. These were the best enchilada's I have ever eaten bar none.
Serve this traditional Mexican enchilada recipe with a side of rice and beans for a satisfying meal.

- 3 cups slivered (1/4. in. thick) cooked citrus-cumin barbecued pork
- 1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
- 1 jar (1 lb., 1 3/4 cups) tomatillo salsa
- 2 cups tomato salsa
- 1 cup fat-skimmed chicken broth
- 8 corn tortillas (6 to 7 in. wide)
- 2 cups (1/2 lb.) shredded jack cheese
- Sour cream (optional)
- 1. Mix pork, cilantro, and 1/2 cup tomatillo salsa.
- 2. In a 9- by 13-inch pan, mix tomato salsa and 1/2 cup broth.
- 3. In an 8- to 10-inch frying pan over medium-high heat, bring remaining 1/2 cup broth to steaming. Remove from heat. Dip 1 tortilla at a time in broth to slightly soften, about 1 second. As softened, lay each tortilla flat and spoon 1/8 of the pork mixture down the center. Sprinkle with about 1 tablespoon cheese, then roll tortilla to enclose filling. Set the enchilada seam down in the 9- by 13-inch pan. Repeat to fill remaining tortillas.
- 4. Spoon remaining tomatillo salsa over enchiladas, then sprinkle with remaining cheese.
- 5. Bake in a 400° oven until enchiladas are hot in the center and salsa is bubbling, about 30 minutes. Top portions with sour cream.
