Homemade enchiladas, the Pit Boss way! These Steak Enchiladas Verde start with tender and flavorful marinated flank steak, cooked to perfection on the Pit Boss Platinum Series KC Combo griddle side then sliced thinly. The steak is then rolled up in traditional corn tortillas with heaps of cheese and a homemade Chile Verde sauce from tomatillos and poblano pepper smoked right on the grill. Serve with a side of fresh guacamole and salsa for the full flavor experience.
