Green Chile Swiss Enchiladas

While Hatch green chiles grow north of the Mexican border, New Mexican cuisine is rooted in traditional Mexican food.

Enchiladas are made in all kinds of shapes and sizes in Mexico.

For this variation, stuff corn tortillas with pork braised in green chile sauce and some Swiss cheese, and top it with a simple cream sauce for balance.

For the filling

6 cups green chile sauce

1 2-pound pork sirloin or shoulder roast

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Salt and pepper

Dash of Worcestershire

For the enchiladas

12 corn tortillas

Vegetable oil

1 ½ cups grated Swiss cheese

1 onion fine diced

For the sauce

3 cups sour cream

1 ½ cups milk

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper, preferably white

1 teaspoon toasted, ground cumin
