BBQ Pulled Pork Enchiladas

I love enchiladas. I actually consider them comfort food. I don't make them often anymore because they aren't the most diet friendly dish. I have however, been craving them like crazy lately so I had to give in to my craving! I mixed up one of my favorite enchilada recipes using leftover bbq pulled pork that we had last night and let me tell you....they were a hit!

BBQ Pulled Pork Enchiladas
Makes 8 Enchiladas
Cal 211, Fat 6.5g, Carbs 22.1, Fiber 10g, Protein 13.3g

2 cups cooked and shredded boneless pork loin
1/2 cup BBQ Sauce (I use Stubbs)
8 flour tortillas (I used low carb mission wheat)
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/4 cups reduced fat shredded Mexican cheese blend
1 1/2 cups red enchilada sauce
1 can chopped green chilies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13-inch pan with nonstick spray.

Mix pulled pork with BBQ Sauce, cayenne pepper, salt, and green chilies. Mix well.

Add 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce to your baking dish. Spread it around so it coats the entire bottom of the dish.

Assemble the enchiladas by spooning 1/4 cup of the pork mixture down the middle of your tortilla. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cheese on top of the pork. Wrap the tortilla around the filling tightly and place it seam-side-down in the pan. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling until you have finished filling 8 tortillas. Place the tortillas side-by-side in the dish.

Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the top of the stuffed enchiladas. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Remove pan from the oven and take off the foil. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top; return to the oven and let the cheese melt (about 5 minutes).

Garnish with any other additional toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
