Carnitas Enchiladas Verde with Black Beans and Corn

Carnitas Enchiladas Verde with Black Beans and Corn

I first had this type of enchilada when we were having dinner at a friend’s house. I loved the combination of tender shredded pork, black beans, and corn combined with flour tortillas folded burrito style (keeps the pork moist & filling inside!) and then topped with verde enchilada sauce and cheese then baked. They were so tasty and comforting! We just got back from a whirlwind trip to Idaho for the holidays and I was craving something Mexican which reminded me of these carnitas enchiladas verde with black beans and corn. I cooked the carnitas meat all morning long then threw the enchiladas together and baked them for dinner. We all thought they were delicious – especially my husband and me. I am so excited about the leftovers tomorrow!
