How to make it
- Char Anaheim chiles over gas flame or in broiler until blackened on all sides. Enclose in plastic bag 10 minutes. Peel, seed and coarsely chop chiles.
- Combine broth, 1/2 cup onion, tomatillos, jalapeno and garlic in medium saucepan. Simmer over medium heat until liquid is reduced to 1 cup, about 10 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
- Transfer to blender. Add Anaheim chiles, cilantro and lime juice. Blend until smooth. Transfer to bowl. Whisk in sour cream. Season with salt and pepper. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover, then chill.)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a 15 x 10 x 2-inch baking dish.
- Place 6 tortillas between 2 damp paper towels. Cook in microwave on HIGH until warm, about 1 minute.
- Working with 1 warm tortilla at a time, dip tortillas into sauce; shake excess sauce back into bowl. Place tortillas on work surface. Spoon scant 1/4 cup Pork Chile Verde, 2 tablespoons cheese and 1 tablespoon onion down center of each. Roll up tortillas. Arrange enchiladas, seam side down, in prepared baking dish. Repeat with remaining 6 tortillas. (Can be made 8 hours ahead. Cover enchiladas, remaining sauce and separately. Chill.)
- Top enchiladas with remaining sauce, then cheese. Bake enchiladas uncovered until heated through, about 20 minutes (or 30 minutes if enchiladas have been refrigerated). Sprinkle tomatoes over and serve.
