    Leftover Turkey Tamale Pie

    Well, we're in the process of cleaning up our Turkey leftovers. I spotted this recipe a week or so before Thanksgiving and decided to give it a try. Turkey Tamale Pie. Here's the pictures.

    Loosened up some chopped yellow onion.'



    Threw in some chopped red bell pepper and a couple of poblanos, some pepper, cumin and dried oregano.



    After a couple of minutes added a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Yikes!



    Brought the pepper mixture into the house and mixed in the cubed leftover turkey.



    Then some sharp cheddar cheese.



    Finally topped things off with some enchilada sauce and chicken broth.



    Transferred to a casserole dish.



    Ladled on a cornmeal topping, medium grind. Looks like a late 60's photograph.



    Finally, more sharp Cheddar.



    Back on the indirect grill for about 45 minutes.

    Sliced up a baguette I made a couple of days ago.



    All done.



    Plated it up. or bowled it up.



    Wow, this was delicious. Heat level was up there but manageable, at least for us. Still have lots of left overs. I'll keep busy. Have a great weekend everyone. Thanks for looking.

    Wow! Don't think I could handle that much heat, but I like the basic recipe. Nice cook.

    Yum! A lot of work but well worth the effort. Looks super. I'm sure it was tasty.

    Dunno if I'm up to using a nice pyrex pan on the grill yet. Have seen you do that numerous times so it must be OK.

    Probably not the best idea in the world but I've been doing it for years and never had a problem. Wouldn't do it on anything with a grill size less than 22" and of course only with indirect cooking. Not recommending it at all but it works for me and helps with the pictures. I've been on the lookout for a shallow 9 x 12 inch cast iron baking pan, preferably Lodge, but haven't found one to my liking yet.
