Saucy, smothered, hearty, and delicious: This enchilada bake has everything you could possibly want. You’ll start by wrapping tortillas around a filling of spiced ground pork and sautéed bell pepper, then coating the bundles with a healthy glug of zesty tomato sauce and a sprinkle of Mexican cheese. Bake until piping hot and bubbly, then top with lime crema and pico de gallo and dig into all that deliciousness.

• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 475 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. • Dice tomato. Trim and thinly slice scallions. Quarter lime. Core, deseed, and dice bell pepper into ½-inch pieces.
• In a small bowl, combine tomato, scallions, a drizzle of oil, and juice from 1 lime wedge (2 wedges for 4 servings). Season with salt and pepper. • In a separate small bowl, combine sour cream with lime juice to taste. Add water 1 tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, salt, and pepper; cook until just softened, 4-5 minutes. • Add another drizzle of oil to pan. Add pork*, half the Tex-Mex paste, half the Southwest Spice (you’ll use the rest of each later), salt, and pepper. Cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until pork is browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. TIP: If there’s excess grease in your pan, carefully pour it out. • Turn off heat.
• Place a small amount of filling on one half of each tortilla. Roll up tortillas, starting with filled sides, to create enchiladas. Place seam sides down in an 8-by-8-inch baking dish (9-by-13-inch baking dish for 4 servings) or an ovenproof pan.
• In a liquid measuring cup or bowl, combine ½ cup water (¾ cup for 4 servings), tomato paste, remaining Tex-Mex paste, and remaining Southwest Spice. • Pour sauce over enchiladas to thoroughly coat. Sprinkle with Mexican cheese. • Bake on top rack until sauce is bubbly and cheese has melted, 3-5 minutes.
• Top enchiladas with lime crema and pico de gallo. Divide between plates and serve with any remaining lime wedges on the side.
