I needed a new way to mix it up with my leftover pulled pork other than chili and these amazing Pulled Pork Enchiladas happened. Tortillas filled with pulled pork, stuffed with cheese and dosed in enchiladas sauce, mmmm! Super tasty and a super easy meal!
I always pick a large pork butt to smoke just so I’m conveniently left with some pulled pork to stick in the freezer. I divide it out into portions of about 2 c. and freeze it.
