Green Chile Enchilada Bake Recipe

Green Chile Enchilada Bake Recipe
Lately I’ve been making 5-Ingredient Instant Pot Chile Verde, not only because it’s easy, but my family loves it. I always have leftovers, though, and am always looking for something quick to use it in. This Green Chile Enchilada Bake is a favorite way to use the remaining chile verde in my fridge, and since it only has four ingredients, it can be put together quickly. If you don’t have any leftover chile verde, you can use canned.
This easy casserole dish will become a go-to quick dinner, and everyone will love it. The chunks of pork, crunchy tortilla chips, and cheese make for a great dish that tastes like enchiladas. A quick salad is the only accompaniment needed to complete the meal. Hopefully you keep prepared salsa verde and nacho cheese tortilla chips in your pantry (as well as canned chile verde if you don't want to make your own); it's a good idea to always have them on hand. Most of us keep shredded cheese in our fridge, so chances are that you have everything for this dish already on hand.
