this was really good! I made two changes: I added a can of pinto beans and cooked in dutch oven on the stove. I also added shredded monterey jack cheese on top. Hubby really liked this dish too

This was not a big hit in my house. I thought it was fine, but the rest of the family wasn't loving it.

UPDATE: I've eaten all the leftovers and I believe this is better the second day. It took me 4 days to finish and it was good every single day. 4/28/18: I was skeptical about this recipe but had cubed pork roast that I needed to use. I've never used green enchilada sauce before and there was some preparation to this because of the chopping the vegetables and sauteing the meat and vegetables but it was worth it. My husband is VERY picky and didn't really care for it which I've come to expect. I'll finish this off myself for sure. Thanks for giving me a new, different recipe which I enjoyed.

This recipe is very good. I used Pork Chops which were marinaded in the, " Marinaded Pork Chops Recipe", also located in Taste of Home website. I was a little hesitant about adding the carrots but they were an excellent addition. I will definitely make this recipe again.

I ended up using steak instead of pork and making my own enchilada sauce. This was really good! Very flavorful!

This recipe is great! Our family loved it. I had left over pork loin chops that I had made a couple nights ago that was cooked with apples, onions and cumin. The sweetness of the apples and the spice of this enchilada sauce in this recipe not only really complimented this dish but was fast to put together since the chops were already cooked. I just mixed them together in a dutch oven after making the sauce and let them simmer covered to melge for a while. Wow! Definite keeper.

This is great but it might be easier to leave the jalapeno on the side so you could leave the amount of spice up to the individual person.
