This recipe is a 3 Step Process:

1. Smoking the Pork
2. Making the Enchilada Filling
3. Making the Enchilada Sauce (to pour on top)
4. Baking the Enchiladas

TORTILLAS
2

We recommend Corn Tortillas for this recipe, but flour tortillas work as well.

It helps if you heat the corn tortillas on each side medium heat for 30 seconds. It makes the process or rolling easier and ensures they wont' break.

SMOKING THE PORK
3

We recommend getting a 8 - 12 pound Bone-In Pork Butt. Pork Shoulder will also do. If you are only making one batch of these, you only need 4 pounds meat, but if you are going through the trouble to smoke a pork butt, do it right and do a big one. You can always use the rest of the meat for more enchiladas or other recipes.
