Michelle's Enchiladas Verde

Print Friendly and PDF
These are excellent!  Michelle made Shredded Pork Enchiladas Verde from the Cooking With All Things Trader Joe's Cookbook.  The salsa verde has a nice fresh, tangy flavor.  You can use slow-cooked braised pork or buy it pre-made at Trader Joe's.  The enchiladas are easy to put together, and are a meal in itself.  You will love them!

1, 12-oz pkg refrigerated Traditional Carnitas, shredded (about 2 cups) or slow-cooked braised pork
12 corn tortillas (6-in. size)
1 T canola oil
1-1/2 jars Salsa Verde
1-1/2 cups sour cream
1 cup grated pecorino romano cheese
1 cup thinly sliced lettuce, romaine and red cabbage
1 cup frozen roasted corn, thawed
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Put a little oil in a frying pan over medium heat and soften tortillas for 3-5 seconds a side, until limp.  In a separate bowl, mix 1/2 cup salsa, 1 cup sour cream and cilantro.  Reserve the rest of the sour cream and cilantro as a garnish.  Place 2 tablespoons of the pork, 2 tablespoons of the sour cream mixture and 1 tablespoon of cheese on each tortilla.  Roll them up, and place seam side down in a greased 9 x 13 pan.  Bake for 10 min. at 350 degrees until the cheese melts.  Pour remaining salsa verde on top.  Garnish with lettuce combination, corn, sour cream and cilantro.  Absolutely delicious.
