Mexican Pulled Pork and Grits

Mexican Pulled Pork and Grits is a essentially enchiladas in bowl form. All of the elements are there – pork, enchilada sauce, corn (grits) and lots of cheese – and you control how much of each is there. It’s a delicious change of pace from the typical chicken and rice or pork for dinner. 

Do you remember this beautiful butt??

It really is one of the best things I’ve smoked here lately.

That bacon was so crispy, so smoky.


I’m obviously a fan of wrapping the absolute sh*t out of everything with bacon.

Because bacon is life.

Or so I’ve heard.

Or tasted.

Or both.

I had a good bit of pork from this to play with. I also had enough to freeze; I love it when that happens.

Anyway, one of the first things I made with it was this Mexican Pulled Pork and Grits. ↓

It’s so good, so smoky, so hearty.

So beautiful and full of flavor.

It’s definitely a leftover-for-breakfast kinda thing. I absolutely LOVE leftovers for breakfast; most things are fantastic, of not better, the next day. 


What is Mexican Pulled Pork and Grits?

This is tender pulled pork tossed in enchilada sauce, served over sharp white cheddar grits. This is comfort food for me. 

Feel free to play around with it and make it your own! Add more good stuff such as jalapenos, tomatoes, or avocado chunks. I like it just as it is.
