Good dinner, as we all enjoyed these nice enchiladas,though we did not like like the celery in these, hence the 4 stars. Other than that they were good, and did make for a good dinner. The chiles did take the cake with these, and loved the idea of pork in these rather than beef, it was nice to have pork for a change, since we usually prefer beef. Nice and filling too. Made for PRMR Tag.
I'm not sure why my review isn't showing up, but I'll try a third time! I pretty much followed the recipe although I did use green chilies instead of the poblano! We have more chicken enchiladas that anything else, but when I have shredded & frozen pork around, I'll do these as well, & your recipe now gives me an additional incentive to make them more often ~ They're wonderfully satisfying! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
Wow! This recipe is definately a keeper. Well worth the extra effort and I am so looking forward to having the leftoevers today. Me and my family all loved it. I made a few small changes . . . used the medium verdi (green) enchilada sauce, the large green chilis because the store did not have poblano chiles and a yellow onion because that is what I had. I can not wait to use this for a dinner party. It is definately worth the 5 Stars. Thanks
