These enchiladas are delicious and vegetarian. It is hot in the Baja now. Our daytime temperatures have been touching 92 F or 32 C with 30-50% humidity. I love the heat but I don’t love using my oven when it’s hot outside. So…..I baked these enchiladas in the outdoor BBQ.
El Gringo triple wrapped the inside of a grilling basket and I layered the enchiladas directly into the foil pouch. We baked them for 30 minutes at approximately 400 degrees on indirect heat. We have a broiler element in our outdoor grill so we opened the aluminum package carefully and finished the enchiladas under the broiler but that’s probably not necessary. You can make any type of enchilada on the outdoor grill without over heating your kitchen. The possibilities are endless. Try these pumpkin kale enchiladas.

Outdoor Grilled Poblano, Onion and Cheese Enchiladas
3 tablespoons Olive oil
8 corn tortillas
2 poblano peppers
1/2 white or yellow onion
8 ounces cheddar or chihuahua cheese
2 cups red or green enchilada sauce. Red enchilada sauce recipe.
Clean and seed pepper. Slice pepper and onion into 1/2 inch strips. Coat with 2 tablespoons olive oil and grill in a grilling basket until soft and lightly charred.
Microwave corn tortillas for 30 seconds to soften them. Place vegetables and a sprinkle of shredded cheese into tortilla and roll. Repeat with all tortillas. Oil the aluminum foil pouch to avoid sticking. Place 1 cup of enchiladas sauce into the pouch and add the rolled enchiladas. Pour remaining sauce over enchiladas and top with any remaining cheese.
Fold foil pouch over enchiladas and seal. Bake in the outdoor BBQ grill for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. Carefully open pouch and broil until golden or serve without broiling.

When it’s too hot to slave over the stove these Instant Pots and crockpots work really well.
