Preparations and filling  

  • Heat up the oven to 200°C/390°F 
  • Peel and dice the red onion and chop the garlic finely. Rinse the chili, remove the seeds, and cut them into strips. Chop the fresh cilantro. 
  • Cut the pork luncheon meat into squares.  
  • Heat some oil over medium-high heat and add the onion, garlic, and chilies. Fry until translucent and soft. 
  • Add the diced pork and fry until golden. 
  • Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Mix all ingredients and add 2 tablespoons of grated cheese.  

Assemble the enchiladas  

  • Lay out a tortilla and spread 2-3 tablespoons of filling over the surface.  
  • Roll and place it in a baking dish greased in vegetable oil.  
  • Continue this until all tortillas have been placed in the baking dish.  
  • Finish off by adding the rest of the shredded cheese on top.  
  • Put the dish in the oven and bake for about 8 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and the tortilla is golden.  


  • Serve the enchiladas hot with a side of salad, tomato, sweet corn, and raw onion. 
  • Enjoy!



For a more filling variant of this recipe, you can add salsa or black beans, or you can serve with a side of beans and rice to ensure that you’re left full and satisfied. For a creamier and greasier version serve the enchiladas topped with sour cream or guacamole – or even both.

Enchiladas are also ideal for meal prepping, as you can freeze the enchiladas for later use.
