Cheeseburger Enchiladas


Cheeseburger Enchiladas because we love, love, love cheeseburgers. For Christmas this year Ken got a professional grade meat grinder. Patti found some chuck rolls on sale and we had fun making our own ground beef. It’s been cold here (for Ca.) and we wanted to make something a little heartier, plus Ken made us some of his awesome smoked cheese!

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood Pellet Patio Heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Brown the Meat and Mix in the Filling


Cooking Directions: Cheeseburger Enchiladas

Preheat the grill to 350* (177c).

In a large cast iron Dutch oven brown ground beef. Add peppers, garlic and sweet onion and sauté until soft. Stir in corn, tomatoes, green onion, olives, half of cheese and seasonings.

Spray a 9×13 baking dish with a cooking spray (we use Duck Fat) pour in 1 cup enchilada sauce.

Place ¾ cup of meat mixture on each tortilla. Lay seam side down in baking dish. Repeat until meat mixture is gone. Pour remaining sauce over filled tortillas. Sprinkle on remaining cheese.

When the cheese is melted and everything is bubbling and happy it’s time to eat!!!

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also, you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke, so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can do our recipes on any grill, even some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion and Do What You Love,
Ken & Patti
