Wild in the Kitchen: Turkey Tots In Taco Sauce

Mike Bolton | April 2, 2018

The Smokin’ Ashes cooking team from Andalusia won the AWF Wild Game Cook-Off in Covington County with this recipe. It uses Anaheim peppers, a New Mexico pepper that is much milder than jalapeno peppers. This dish is fried instead of grilled and served with a taco dipping sauce made by blending cream cheese with a packet of Taco Bell Original Seasoning Mix that can be found at grocery stores.

One half a wild turkey breast
12 Anaheim peppers
8 oz. cream cheese
Half pound of bacon
2 cups flour
2 eggs, beaten
Peanut oil

Cut Anaheim peppers in half lengthwise, and remove the seeds. Slice the turkey breast very thin and to a length that will allow it to roll up and fit inside one half of an Anaheim pepper. Fill the other half of pepper with cream cheese. Put the pepper halves back together, and wrap with bacon and secure with a toothpick. Dip in egg wash and batter in flour. Fry until golden brown.
