Carnitas Enchiladas

If you are a.) obsessed with enchiladas or shredded pork, b.) love all-things Mexican food, or c.) can get on board with any sort of cheesy casserole-like situation, WELL ..

You’re going to go bonkers over these carnitas enchiladas.

First and foremost, they are crazy easy to make. You simply whip out a batch of Instant Pot Carnitas or Crock Pot Carnitas, then have yourself an enchilada making party.

I use homemade enchilada sauce and gluten-free tortillas for these enchiladas, but you can use store-bought sauce and/or regular flour tortillas.

The way I see it, these enchiladas are perfect for celebrating Cinco de Mayo, serving guests or the whole family, and/or meal prep.

Let’s dive into this meaty melty cheese delight!

What Type of Pork to Use:

I use boneless pork roasts to make carnitas, but you can also use bone-in.

4 pounds of pork roast will yield between 8 and 10 enchiladas (depending on how big you want your enchiladas), so you can plan the size roast you buy according to how many enchiladas you want to make.
