Enchiladas are a Mexican dish made by adding filling to a corn tortilla, rolling it up, and serving it with a chile pepper sauce. The enchilada was first created by the Nahua (Aztec, Mexicano) people. In Mexico, they are usually eaten as a street food. Enchilada comes from the Spanish word, enchilar, meaning “to add chile”. Common fillings now include pork, chicken, beef, fish, cheese, and vegetables. In addition to a pepper sauce, they may also be topped with sour cream, onions, peppers, cilantro, salsa, or cheese. These pork enchiladas are made by cooking pork shoulder in a poblano and cilantro sauce, filling lightly fried corn tortillas with the pork, then covering it with the poblano cream sauce.

I made my own corn tortillas using this recipe from Eating Rules. They turned out really well, though I need to work on my rolling technique as the edges turned out a bit ragged.
