This is a dish I’ve been making for 30 years, it’s a friends and family favorite and most requested recipe. I have used moose, elk, and antelope, I used antelope steaks in the photos your see here. Substituting beef or pork would work, just make sure to cut away as much of the fat as you can before cooking, game meat is very lean.
When choosing a sauce, pick one with lots of flavor, don’t use a mild sauce, the meat overpowers it and the dish will not have a balanced flavor. Las Palmas Medium Enchilada Sauce has proven to be the best for this recipe. When choosing a cheese be sure to spend a little more and get good quality cheese or the flavor will not be as good, and it will be greasy.
The Pampered Chef Carnitas Slow Cooker Seasoning is a new addition to my recipe. Pampered Chef Carnitas Slow Cooker Seasoning gives the meat a deep, delicious flavor while it slow cooks. My husband and I liked the flavor a bit better then cooking it in the enchilada sauce.
The assembly on this is quick and easy but very hands on. My Pampered Chef Toaster Tongs made it easier to handle the hot tortillas without ripping them. When filling the tortillas they will be hot, if your hands can not stand the heat let them cool just enough to touch before rolling.
My favorite memory of serving this was from many years ago, when I brought some antelope to a friends house and made a batch. The kids woofed it down like they had not eaten in weeks. When we were near the end of the meal we told the kids what kind of meat they were eating. One of the boys' eyes got really big and he had a look on his face like we just told him he ate poo. LOL, he was the one who went back and filled his plate with extra servings.

Set to high and cook for 6 – 8 hours, adding water as needed. Do not let the meat dry out.
1 to 2 hours before assembling the enchaladas, shred the meat. Add a little water if needed.

January 11th is National Milk Day AND National Hot Toddy Day. Who says we can’t celebrate both with one drink!! One of my favorite après-ski Hot Toddies is hot cocoa with a shot of Rumple Minze and fresh whipped cream!
I keep a flask of Rumple Minze in my ski pack for such occasions BUT home made hot cocoa is the bomb! Below is the recipe I used since the 80’s, you can read more about it in That Time I lived in a Ghost Town.
If you are like most of us ‘Fresh from the cow” milk is not available, so to get that rich flavor use whole milk and replace a little of it with heavy whipping cream. SURE it is full fat, but you earned it!
To modernize this recipe I use my Deluxe Cooking Blender, add all the ingredients except the vanilla, and press the pre-programmed sauce button. When the blender beeps, add the vanilla and give it a pulse.
Pour your cocoa in a warm mug and add an ounce or so of Rumple Minze .
To top off the concoction I make some whipped cream in my Pampered Chef Whipped Cream Maker, it only takes in a minute. Best part is I can add a bit of flavor to is by adding my favorite spirit.
Treat yourself to this yummy Hot Toddy after any cold day, skiing not required.
Hunting is a part of my family’s life and life in Wyoming. We keep a freezer full of game meat to feed us all year long. My husband and son love antelope, I could take it or leave it. It is a little strong for my liking so I’m always looking for ways to fix it so I can enjoy dinner too.
This was sort of an accidental success. We thawed antelope burger for dinner and had a package of thawed pork sausage that didn’t get eaten over the weekend. I looked at several meatball recipes for basic ideas and added my own style. Smoking it on the outdoor grill was key, antelope meatballs that I even loved.

We serve these on pasta with spaghetti sauce but they taste awesome on their own, in a meatball sub, and would even be great in a meatball slider.
In years past I used my hand to mix meatloaf, meatballs, ect. This time I used my Pampered Chef Mix ‘n Chop… and I’m never going back! it did a through job combining the ingredients and I didn’t get my hands icky.
