  • 8x8 baking dish


  • 3 cups leftover pork butt (shredded, heaping cups)
  • 1 8-ounce block pepper jack cheese (shredded)
  • ¾ cup red onion (finely diced)
  • 9 small corn tortillas
  • 2 cups Roasted Green Tomato Salsa* (plus 1 - 1 ½ tablespoons water)
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Spray the bottom and sides of the 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Cut six of the corn tortillas into four even, triangular pieces.
  • Put a piece of cut tortilla in each corner, aligning the straight edges with the sides of the baking dish. Add a piece of cut tortilla in the middle of each side to bridge the gap. Add a whole tortilla to the middle to complete the layer.
  • Add 3-4 tablespoons of Roasted Green Tomato Salsa on top of the tortilla layer. Spread into an even layer. 
  • Add ½ of the leftover shredded pork, distributing evenly.
    Add half of the onions, distributing evenly.

  • Cover baking dish with aluminum foil. Bake for 20 minutes. 
  • Remove aluminum foil and broil for 5 minutes, until cheese is golden brown and bubbly.
  • Remove from oven and let sit for at least 5 minutes before digging in.
  • Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and crema.
