Southwestern BBQ Pork Enchiladas

Even though it is January 4th, we still have some of the pulled pork left from our New Years Dinner. Since I am  utterly tired of eating it the same old way, I decided to spice it up a bit and made up this recipe for Southwestern BBQ Pork Enchiladas. they were quite tasty! I also had quite a few veggies that we needed to use up in the fridge so this was the perfect opportunity to use up some of them and mix it into the enchiladas. I also wanted to get in on a challenge to use up what was in my fridge/pantry and create a meal without having to buy anything from the store. My father calls these pastishes! Hope you enjoy!

3 cups Root Beer Pulled Pork
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 elephant garlic bulb, chopped (about 8 cloves of regular garlic)
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 mini red pepper, chopped
1 mini yellow pepper, chopped
1 mini orange pepper, chopped
10 crimini mushrooms, chopped
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 cup barbecue sauce (I used a "joke" sauce called Blazing Rectum, it was just yummy)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
5 Flat Out Flat breads

Chop all of your vegetables into approximately the same size pieces.



In a deep saute pan, heat 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil. Saute the onion and garlic till it is translucent and tender. add all of the peppers and saute for about 7 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook for about 5 - 7 more minutes. Deglaze the pan with chicken stock. Stir in the pulled pork and just bring up to temperature. Add the barbecue sauce and mix thoroughly. Remove from heat. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Take one of the flat breads and spoon about 2 spoonfuls of the mixture into the middle of the flat bread and about 1 - 2 tbsp of the cheddar cheese. Roll the flat bread up and put seam side down into a baking dish. Repeat until all of your flat breads have been used. Top the enchiladas with the remaining cheddar cheese and mozzarella and pour a bit more of the barbecue sauce over them. Bake for about 25 minutes.

Ha! I know it sounds funny, but you find it in novelty shops that sell food items, barbecue sauce etc. We found it at this huge candy store that we went to that sells all this weird stuff...but you can actually buy it here:
