Spicy Pork Enchiladas with Mole Sauce

Ready in 35 minutes

These deliciously sauced tortillas pack a bit of a punch on the spicy side, and are a wonderful counterpart for your favorite Margaritas!

Great for leftover pork, would be even better with a shredded pork roast.

"I had leftover pork tenderloin, and it worked great with that. Pretty easy considering how good it tastes."

Cover; blend 1 minute or until smooth.

Set aside.

Melt butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; add onion.

Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened.

Pour remaining sauce over tortillas; sprinkle with cheese.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

Notes

This has a touch of chocolate in this recipe, which is what got it the 'Mole' title, but it's not a traditional Mole sauce.
