Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 pounds boneless pork shoulder roast I used Smithfield brand
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic minced
  • 1 (7 ounce) can diced green chiles
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups reduced-fat Mexican blend shredded cheese divided
  • 8 Mission Carb Balance Flour Tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups mild green enchilada sauce divided

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium- high heat. Sear the pork roast on all sides until brown and place in a slow cooker sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper, onion powder, oregano, chili powder and cumin; sprinkle on top of roast. Top roast with minced garlic and green chiles, then pour chicken broth around the sides. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 5-7 hours. When done cooking, remove pork from slow cooker and shred with two forks.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and spread 1 cup of enchilada sauce in the bottom of the pan.
  • Divide shredded pork and 1 1⁄2 cups cheese evenly between tortillas. Roll up and place seam-side down in the prepared pan. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the enchiladas and sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Garnish with fresh cilantro before serving, if desired.
