Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I use a different type of meat instead of pork shoulder?

Yes, you can substitute pork shoulder with chicken, beef, or even tofu for a vegetarian option.

Adjust the cooking time accordingly based on the type of meat used.

Is it necessary to use a pressure cooker, or can I cook the pork filling using a different method?

  • While a pressure cooker can expedite the cooking process, you can also simmer the pork filling on the stovetop or slow-cook it in a crock pot until tender.
  • Cooking times may vary depending on the method chosen.

What type of tortillas work best for this recipe?

  • Corn tortillas are traditionally used for enchiladas, but you can also use flour tortillas if preferred.
  • Ensure they are warmed or lightly toasted before rolling to prevent cracking.

Can I adjust the level of spiciness in the enchiladas?

When assembling the enchiladas, ensure the filling is heated through before spooning it into the tortillas to facilitate rolling.
