Smoked Queso Breakfast WrapsG'Morning Y'all! A dedicated Breakfast section now?! Sign me up! I had to jump on the smoked queso bandwagon too.
Yesterday, I was going to make some quick tacos and then decided I wanted to mix it up with a wrap. But first, Queso!
There are a lot of recipes going around the interwebz so I did what I usually do, read a ton and make it up!
- 4 oz Velveeta
- 4 oz Cream Cheese
- 4 oz Smoked Gouda
- 1 lb Sausage
- 1 can (10 oz) Fire Roasted Rotel with liquid
- 1 can (4 oz) Hatch Green Chili, drained
- 1/2 can (5 oz) Cream of Poblano (most said cream of mushroom, but this sounded better to me so I snagged it). Cream of chicken worked great too.
- 2 Tbsp BBQ rub of choice
On the Kettle with a piece of Pecan wood
Thin blue smoke
about 45 mins later (stirred frequently throughout)
Breakfast prep. Added some extra sausage and Bacon.
Add egg (I split one egg between the two molds)
Wrap and toast in a pan
The queso was pretty darn good. I still think that I prefer regular queso, sans smoke, and the wife agreed. Not that this was bad by any means. It was quite good! Just not what I expect for the profile of "queso". I will say that after this sat in the fridge overnight it was way better. I would definitely make in advance, and then reheat when needed. The consistency was what I was hoping for too. Even straight out of the fridge it was loose enough to dip chips into. It wasn't runny, but was actually scoopable which was great.
The wraps were a great way to start the day and not too filling at all. The tortillas are on the smaller side. I could've probably got away with a whole egg each and more queso. These are also begging for some brisket to be added too! Next time...
