I first created this to use leftover pork roast from a large Christmas gathering we had. I now buy pork specifically for this. I've also used leftover taco meat.

Ingredients

1 lb
pork
1 pkg
taco seasoning
32 oz
chicken stock/broth
1
large onion
1
large zuchini
1 can(s)
campbell's fiesta nacho cheese soup
1 pkg
tortillas
2 can(s)
red enchilada sauce
1-2 Tbsp
oil
cooking spray
4 c
shredded cheese (i use a mixture of mexican blend & pepper jack. my son doesn't like spicy foods, so i make his first & then add the pepper jack.)
sour cream
salsa
chopped green onions
sliced or chopped black olives

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Rub pork w/ taco seasoning or mix taco seasoning w/ broth. Put pork in crockpot, pour broth over meat. Cook until meat shreds easily (takes mine about 6 hours on low).
2
Reserve cooking liquid. Shred pork & set aside.
3
Put enough oil in frying pan to cover bottom. Chop onion & sautee on medium heat. Shred zuchini & add to pan. Add cooking liquid, 1/4 C at a time, to keep moist. When vegetables are soft & liquid is mostly absorbed, add shredded pork (& enough cooking liquid so that pork doesn't dry out), soup, & 3 C cheese.
4
Spray 9 x 12 pan with cooking spray. Add enough red enchilada sauce to cover bottom of pan. Place 1/2 C or so pork mixture into tortilla, roll, & place in pan, seam side down. Continue until you're out of tortillas. Pour remaining sauce over tortillas to cover them. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Spray foil, & cover pan.
5
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove foil & back 2 more minutes. Let sit 5 minutes.
6
Serve w/ salsa, sour cream, onions, olives, or whatever taco fixings you'd like.
