Meal Idea Mondays: BBQ Pork Enchiladas for Two

Meal Idea Mondays: BBQ Pork Enchiladas for Two by Custom Taste
We eat a lot of pork, love BBQ and love Tex-Mex (we are from the southwest after all) so I decided to combine all of it into one great dinner!  It is turned out to be easy and delicious. You can compare it to a BBQ pulled pork sandwich, just with a lot less carbs and not as messy, at least they aren't as messy to eat. A perfect dinner for an in home date night or any night of the week!

  • 1/4 Bunch Cilantro

  • 1/2 Cup Favorite BBQ Sauce
  • 2 Cups Baked Pork( Dry Rub or Wet Rub)
  • 5 Corn Tortillas

Time To Get Cooking!!!
First dice up the onion and 1/2 of the cilantro
Mix onion and cilantro together with 2 TBSP of the BBQ sauce and 1/4 cup shredded cheese in one bowl
Take your pork and either shred it or cut up into relatively small pieces and mix together in the same bowl as above

Line your baking dish with aluminum foil now, if it is needed
Now comes the messy and fun part!
Take one corn tortilla and slather it in the BBQ and cilantro only sauce
Place it on the baking dish and stuff with about 2 tbsp of the pork filling, roll up, flip over and set on one side of the baking dish
Repeat until all tortillas are stuffed
With remaining sauce and filling, pour over the enchiladas and top with remaining cheese

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
When the oven is to temperature put in the enchiladas and let cook for 25 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted if you don't like your cheese too browned
Remove, serve and enjoy!
