How to make it

  1. Add all the pulled pork ingredients into the slow cooker and cook on high for 3-4 hours, or until it’s very tender and easy to shred. 
  2. While your pork is cooking, prepare the quick pickled red onions. Simply place all the ingredients into a small bowl, season with salt and freshly ground pepper, and mix everything with your hands and let it rest.
  3. Then prepare your creamy tomatillo sauce by adding into the blender 1 sachet of Tomatillo Enchilada Sauce, the double cream and coriander. Blend until it’s really smooth and season with a pinch of sea salt and coarse black pepper. Cover and reserve in the fridge.
  4. Check your meat, and once it’s very tender shred it with the help of two forks and mix in with the juices. Place it in a bowl and set aside.
  5. Get a large baking dish and get all your ingredients ready to make your enchiladas. You will need the Soft Taco Wraps, the pulled pork, the creamy tomatillo sauce, and grated cheese.
  6. Begin by adding a good amount of pulled pork into a soft taco, then pour some of the creamy tomatillo sauce on top. Roll and place it in the baking dish. Repeat the same with the rest of your tortillas and pulled pork until you fill your baking dish.
  7. Now pour the remaining enchilada sauce over your enchiladas. Add the grated cheese, a drizzle of olive oil, and place them in the oven at 200°C / 390°F for 15 min approx.
  8. Once they are golden on top and the cheese has melted, remove them from the oven and quickly garnish with the pickled red onion and freshly chopped coriander. Serve warm and enjoy!

what is in green enchilada sauce?

Our Tomatillo Enchilada Sauce, as well as most green enchilada sauces, are blended with fresh tomatillos, jalapeños, onion, garlic and coriander.

Is salsa verde the same as green enchilada sauce?

The main difference between green enchilada sauce and salsa verde is that enchilada sauce is cooked, and salsa verde is raw. The sauce in this recipe ends up being cooked, hence why it's a sauce and not a salsa.

Which is hotter red or green enchilada sauce?

The key difference between the red and green versions is simple: red sauce is made with red chilies and green sauce is made with green chilies (and tomatillos). So it completely depends on which chillies are used, and there isn't one that is hotter than the other. Our Chipotle Enchilada Sauce (red) and Tomatillo Enchilada Sauce (green) are both mild, however, the red is slightly more spicy as it has Chipotle.
