    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

    Wonderful for leftovers, I had previously made a Boston butt roast using a combination recipe of Kittencal's "Dry Rub for ribs, pork shoulder, and boston butt" and her "Fall-apart Tender slow Roast pork butt" recipes, then froze the leftover pulled pork. This recipe fit the bill for use, although I did make a couple changes. I added 1 4.5 oz can of chopped green chiles, 1 fresh diced jalapeno, substituted tomato sauce for fresh tomato, and added enchilada sauce to the filling mixture as well as the top. Had a very nice flavor, I'm not sure DH even knew he was eating pork! Thank you!

    Great recipe Teresa! My girlfriend loved it and so did I. The store I went to didn't have fresh poblano chilies, so I used the diced green fire roasted chilies in the can and it worked really well. I will make this one again. The sour cream and cilantro is a MUST finishing touch.
