Pulled Pork and Aged Cheddar Baked Flautas

If you are a Costco fan then you know the latest coupons have a deal on pork loin, we picked a couple up for lazy day cooking AKA slow cooker days. I made Kalua pork  on Saturday but the meat was too lean and the outcome was flavorful but dry. Now I had a load of dry pulled pork that no one wanted to eat so I got creative. I went through the fridge to see what I could come up with. Success is what I had, pulled pork is no longer only for sandwiches.

Ingredients

2 cups of shredded pork

1/2 red onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 Tbs diced green chills

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp chili powder

1 cup shredded aged cheddar cheese.

Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste

Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Cooking spray

Preheat oven 400 degrees.

Saute onion and garlic in a little olive oil until translucent.

Add chilis, pork and spices, stir until heated through.

Cut tortillas in half. Add a little pork mixture, top with cheese and roll up flautas. Place on greased/foil lined baking sheet and repeat until all the mixture is gone. This made about 10 flautas.

Spray the flautas with cooking spray and bake for 20 minutes or until brown and crispy. Serve with guac, sour cream and a favorite hot sauce.
