Description

Whole Grain Pork Enchiladas with a Roasted Tomatillo Spinach Sauce topped with Lime Crema. These enchiladas are easy to make and so tasty!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SAUCE:
  • 1-¼ pound Tomatillos, Husked
  • 1 whole Poblano Pepper, Halved And Seeded
  • 1 whole Onion, Cut Into Wedges
  • 10 cloves Garlic, Peeled
  • 1 cup Spinach
  • ⅓ cups Cilantro
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 dash Black Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Water Or As Needed
  • FOR THE ENCHILADAS:
  • 2-½ cups Shredded Pork Roast
  • ½ cups Sour Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Scallions, Chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Cilanto
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 8 whole Whole-wheat Tortillas
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • ¼ cups Parmesan Cheese, Grated
  • FOR THE LIME CREMA:
  • ¼ cups Sour Cream
  • 3 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Lime Juice
  • ½  Lime, Zested
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt

Preparation

For the roasted tomatillo spinach sauce:
Preheat oven to 400ºF. On a baking sheet, lay out tomatillos, poblano pepper, onion, and garlic. Roast for 40 minutes or until very soft.

Transfer vegetables and any juices to a food processor. Add spinach, cilantro, salt and pepper. Chop until smooth. Add water if needed; I did add the 2 tablespoons water to thin out the sauce a little.

Set aside or refrigerate until ready to assemble enchiladas.

For the enchiladas verdes:
Preheat oven to 400ºF. In a bowl, combine shredded pork, sour cream, scallions, cilantro and salt. Mix until combined.

On a foil-lined baking sheet, lay out tortillas. They will overlap and that is okay. Brush both sides of tortillas lightly with olive oil. Be sure to brush entire surface as this will give you a softer tortilla after baking.

Cover baking sheets with a second sheet of foil. Bake until soft, about 5 minutes.

In a greased 9×13 baking dish, arrange enchiladas. Spoon out pork mixture down the center of each tortilla and roll up. Place in baking dish seam-side down. Cover enchiladas with the roasted tomatillo spinach sauce. You may have some sauce leftover which is good to use on any leftovers. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.

Bake for 10–12 minutes. While baking, prepare lime crema.

Spoon lime crema over enchiladas and serve. If desired, sprinkle a bit more freshly grated Parmesan on top for garnish. Serve.

For the lime crema:
In a small bowl add sour cream, mayonnaise, fresh lime juice, lime zest, and salt. Using whisk, mix until combined. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve enchiladas
