My husband and I are big fans of pork loins since they are low in fat, high in protein and, oh yeah, they taste great. lol I love to cook them on the grill, like my Asian-Style Pork Loin, in the crockpot, like this delicious & easy Barbecue Pork, or roast it, like my newest fave Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin Sheet Pan Dinner.

So, as you can see, we have a lot of pork leftovers! But, when you fancy them up, they taste like anything but leftovers. And these pork enchiladas are no exception. Make them with any leftover pork and you’ll be pleasantly surprised when your family asks for you to make them over and over again.

They are like an entire meal in a wrap. They not only include pork but corn, black beans and, of course, cheese. They are easy to put together, just pile in the fillings and wrap it up, then cover with a quick and easy fresh cilantro sauce. OK, I have to admit I’m drooling as I write this. It was just so good!

The nice thing about this recipe is that you can use leftover chicken or beef too. No leftovers? No problem! Just brown up some ground beef  and you’re good to go.

I served it with a little side of chopped lettuce and tomato, some salsa and sour cream. I would have also added some sliced avocado but didn’t have any in the house. 🙁 Whatever your favorite go-tos are with Mexican food, they’d work great!
