Pork Enchiladas

These 30-minute cheesy pork enchiladas are about to become a new family favorite! Savory, citrus infused, crispy pulled pork carnitas, wrapped in soft tortillas, and baked in a creamy green enchilada sauce—what’s not to love?!




  • crumbled queso fresco
  • fresh chopped cilantro


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl combine shredded pork, black beans, 1/3 of the shredded cheese, cumin, chili powder, and a couple large pinches of salt and pepper.
  3. Fill a tortilla with about 1/3 a cup of the pork mixture. Roll filling inside tortilla and place it seam side down in a 9x13 inch pan. Continue with remaining tortillas until all are filled.
  4. Pour enchilada sauce over the tortillas and spread so it covers them completely.
  5. Top with remaining shredded cheese.
  6. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbly.
  7. Remove foil and broil for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese starts to get golden brown.
  8. Top with queso fresco and fresh chopped cilantro and enjoy!


Shred your own cheese. If you have an extra minute, it’s worth it to get a block of cheese and shred it at home. Pre-shredded cheeses are coated in an anti-clumping agent to keep them looking fresh, but they don’t melt quite as smooth and creamy either.
