Just an easy enchilada recipe to make with all that leftover ground venison burger. Top these tasty enchiladas with diced green onion, red chilies, cilantro and sour cream.

Yields: 8 enchiladas
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground venison burger (substitute ground elk, antelope, turkey or beef)
  • 28 ounces green enchilada sauce
  • 1 ½ cups salsa verde
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 flour tortillas

Directions:


1. Preheat oven to 400°F.


2. Heat large pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil, onion and garlic and sauté until onion becomes translucent, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add green enchilada sauce and the salsa verde to the pan. Reduce heat to low and stir sauces and onion together.

3. Using a separate skillet, add remaining oil and heat to medium-high. Add ground venison and continue to cook until done. While cooking add cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, oregano and a pinch of salt. Remove from heat.

4. Mix the two cheeses together and add 1 ½ cups to the cooked venison burger. (Save remaining cheese for adding to the top of the enchiladas.)

5. With a large spoon fill venison mixture in the center of each flour tortilla. Roll up the tortilla and place seam side down in a 12x8x2-inch baking dish.


6. Pour the enchilada salsa verde sauce over the tortillas and top with remaining cheese. Cover loosely with tinfoil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake until all cheese is 100 percent melted. Roughly 10 minutes.
