    I also sometimes use pork sirloin that is a good price at my local WINCO. I cook my meat in my electric pressure cooker.
    Instead of a chili, I use Pepper Jack Cheese.
    Sometimes I wrap my enchiladas in both a corn and flour tortilla. Corn for the heartiness and flour for the flavor. My kids love double wrapped enchiladas!
