Queso Pork Enchiladas Recipe

My husband took these to work, and now the guys always ask for them. They’re restaurant-style, rich and spicy, and you can prepare them with cooked chicken or beef, too. —Anna Rodriguez, Bethpage, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 jar (15-1/2 ounces) salsa con queso dip, divided
  • 1 can (10 ounces) enchilada sauce, divided
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium taco seasoning
  • 4 cups cubed cooked boneless country-style pork ribs (from 2 pounds boneless ribs)
  • 12 flour tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • 2-1/2 cups (10 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
  • Shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, combine 3/4 cup queso dip, 1/2 cup enchilada sauce, green chilies, water and taco seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes.
  • 2. Spread 2/3 cup sauce mixture into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Stir pork into remaining sauce mixture. Place 1/3 cup pork mixture down the center of each tortilla; top with 2 tablespoons cheese. Roll up and place seam side down in prepared dish. Combine remaining queso dip and enchilada sauce; pour over enchiladas.
  • 3. Cover and bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until heated through. Serve with lettuce and tomatoes if desired.
    Freeze option: Sprinkle remaining cheese over unbaked casserole. Cover and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake casserole as directed, increasing time as necessary to heat through and for a thermometer inserted in center to read 165°. Yield: 6 servings.
