BBQ Shredded Pork Enchiladas

Paula Todora


Use any leftover meat-roast, chicken, pork w/o BBQ sauce, or ground beef from making tacos-anything! Also, use any type of cheese-pepperjack, monterrey jack, cheddar, american-whatever you have. The object is to use up leftovers here. Use flour tortillas if that's what you have-it works great.
