susan s pork enchiladas


i make many versions of enchiladas depending on what is in the fridge. this one i especially liked, so i wrote it down. it's a great way to use up leftover pork! you can spice it up more with additional jalapenos or a dash of hot sauce mixed in with the enchilada sauce. feel free to adjust the garlic to your taste. you may need to add more oil as you fry the tortillas to keep them from sticking to the pan.
