You all had to have known it was bound to happen, another leftover pulled pork recipe!  I hope you love them as much as I do.  

My brother smoked 4 pork butts in the beginning of December.  He was doing some for my sister’s wedding and figured while he was smoking some meat, he might as well really go for it!

We were lucky enough to end up with a few quart sized bags of yummy, smoky, delicious pulled pork for the freezer.  One portion ended up becoming a deliciously smoky and out of this world addictive cheesy pork dip that I hope to share soon.  Another portion became this soup!

One of my favorite leftover pulled pork recipes so far is the Pulled Pork Enchiladas with Creamy Cheese Sauce. So, I thought it would be fun to make a creamy enchilada inspired soup.

This soup is easy and full of fun textures and flavors.

Even my non-soup eating husband admitted that he liked this soup.  I made him a ham and cheese quesadilla to go along with it to make it an acceptable dinner.  

You know, in his world soup isn’t dinner.  I don’t know what is wrong with him.  I  think soup is the perrrrrrrfect winter dinner!

Of course, this soup doesn’t really seem to be much to look at, but I doubt you will spend much time looking at it anyway.  Just give it a try and let the flavor do the talking!

Carlee, I love soup! In the winter it's a staple, love warming up from the inside out. This looks so delish, not only do we love soup, we love anything mexican inspired. I've never used cornmeal in a soup, sounds interesting and tasty! I wish you lived closer, I'd not only get to test taste these samplings, but your brother and my husband would have a great time smoking meats together!

We would have so much fun, wouldn't we?! I wanted a little something to give the broth more body and add a little texture, so the corn meal seemed like the way to go. It added that little something like a bit of corn tortilla.

You totally made me laugh out loud! I started reading and was thinking.... "hmm... would husband like this?", then I got to the part about your husband! Such similar creatures. Pork roast in the freezer, so time to get this soup going... As well as a sandwich or quesadilla to, of course!
