Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Bulk pork sausage is the raw meat that hasn’t been stuffed into the casing. If you can’t find it, you can buy raw sausages, slit the casing with a knife and remove the meat.
  • Tip 2
    Bulk pork breakfast sausage also comes in a hot variety, which adds a bit of spicy heat to your enchiladas.
  • Tip 3
    Cheddar cheese is a great substitute for Mexican cheese blend.
