I received Turkey Drums from Frick’s Meats to use in a recipe contest. All opinions are my own.
Y’all know how much I enjoy a good enchilada. Well, I devour Mexican food in general but there is nothing like a tasty, cheesy enchie to get me going during the cold weather months. I received a sample of Frick’s MeatsFreshTurkey Drums to use for a recipe contest and I will say… these make some damn tasty enchiladas!
Let me tell you about Frick’s. They were established in 1896 in the good ole USA and are run by five generations and counting. They believe in doing things the right way, not just the cheap and fast way. This philosophy delivers quality fresh meats that are perfect for your recipes. And that is highly evident in their turkey drums.
Because of this commitment to quality, these turned out to be perfect for enchiladas. Using the fresh turkey drums and mixing it with some enchilada sauce and cream cheese, the result is an enchilada with a great smokey taste which will really tickle your tastebuds.
You can make this super easy recipe any weeknight and even have leftovers for lunch the next day. Leftovers make the best work lunches as far as I’m concerned because I just get plain tired of the basic sandwich and chips. I’d much rather have some homemade goodness.
Smoked Turkey Enchiladas
- 1 Frick's Smoked Turkey Drum
- 4 Tbsp Garden Veggie Cream Cheese softened

Remove the drums from the package. Take the second drum and package and freeze for later. Strip the meat off the bone and chop into bite sized pieces.
In a bowl, add the turkey, cream cheese, 1/4-1/2 of the cheese, 1/4 cup enchilada sauce and scallops. Mix to combine
Place an equal amount of the mix into the tortillas. Use 4-6 tortillas depending on how stuffed you want your enchies. Wrap the tortilla and place in a greased casserole dish, seam side down.
Top with tomatoes, remaining enchilada sauce and cheese. Add jalapeños if you would like. Place, uncovered, in the pre-heated oven and bake for 25 minutes. Enjoy with rice and beans. Garnish with salsa.
Use low fat or fat free cheddar cheese to cut down on some calories
Who thought turkey drums would make such a good enchie. Delicious, unique and a nice twist on the traditional enchilada. Will it win me the contest? I sure hope so. I think they are THAT good. And, they reheated perfectly for lunch at my desk the next day. Yes, my co-workers were envious.
