Smoked Turkey Cheese Enchiladas
Smoked Turkey & Cheese Enchiladas


Smoked Turkey & Cheese Enchiladas, in the last few days Ken smoked a turkey and smoked our favorite types of cheese. With the holidays coming we get asked for lots of recipes using leftovers. These were quick and easy to put together and can be put together the night before. Then, on to the grill for another “Kiss of Smoke“. These were gobbled right up.

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…

Cooking Directions: Smoked Turkey & Cheese Enchiladas

In a large bowl combine ½ the shredded cheese and remaining ingredients except for sauce and tortillas. Mix well.

In a 9×13 pan, Patti prefers foil for easy clean-up; Spray with a cooking spray (we use Duck Fat) and pour in 2 cups of the sauce.

In the center of each tortilla place ¾ cup turkey mixture.

Roll up and place seam side down in prepared pan.

Pour remaining sauce over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese.

Preheat your Grill Grates to 350* (177c) and place your Smoked Turkey & Cheese Enchiladas directly into the grill. Keep in mind that the turkey has already been cooked and we are just heating and blending the cheeses and seasoning so this will be a short cook.

For That “Kiss of Smoke” on short cooks now is the time to light your Wedgie. The cheese and turkey have both been smoked. The wedgie is just another “Kiss” and who doesn’t like a “Kiss”?

It’s ready when the cheese is melted and it heated through about 30 minutes.

I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temps.

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.

Cooking In the Oven: Smoked Turkey & Cheese Enchiladas

We have been getting requests for recipe conversions for the oven. I tell folks all the time that cooking on a Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker is just as easy as cooking in your oven. Just about anyone can do it and do it well. Think about it. You set your control knob to the temp you want, put your meat in and leave it for a set time. It is the same thing, time and temperature is what it is all about. The Grill is just like your oven except it uses wood pellets and has wheels.

Do 30 minutes here at 350 (177c).

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Uuni Wood Fired Pizza Oven, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, 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
