Elk Refried Beans and Rice Enchiladas

Elk Beans and Rice Enchiladas

Our family really enjoys wild game enchiladas so we decided to go back to the basics and cook these elk refried bean and rice enchiladas using a mild green enchilada sauce. This recipe cooked up exactly 10 delicious enchiladas that were devoured in a matter of minutes.

Substitute ground venison or antelope burger.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb ground Elk
  • 1 cup cooked white rice
  • 16oz canned refried beans
  • 28oz Green chili enchilada sauce (Mild)
  • 1 sliced green chili (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chopped white onion
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 can Coors or Coors Light
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 10 flour tortillas
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon canola oil to non-stick skillet and add ground elk. Cook until browned. Remove from heat.
  3. Heat refried beans in another pot over low heat. Add cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, oregano, sliced green chilies, onion and beer. Cover and cook on low for 10 minutes.
  4. The easiest way to build these enchiladas is to add the cooked rice, refried beans and meat in a large bowl and mix everything together. Layout flour tortillas and add a few heaping spoonfuls of the mixture in the center. Roll up and place seam side down in a baking dish. Pour the entire can of green enchilada sauce over the top. Garnish with sliced black olives, cilantro and parmesan cheese.
  5. Cover loosely with foil and bake in preheated oven for 30-40 minutes. Remove foil and broil for 5 minutes. Garnish with slice black olives and cilantro.
