Dutch Oven Enchilada Recipe Wins Big in Outdoor Cooking Contest

AUSTIN – An enchilada recipe won by a landslide in an outdoor cooking contest held on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Pinterest page. The winning recipe for Dutch Oven Green Chile, Chicken and Spinach Enchiladas got over 90 repins by Pinterest fans eager to add it to their collections.

The recipe was submitted by Victoria Serna from Denton, Texas who said she created it as a healthy twist on enchiladas.

“I love cooking in a dutch oven,” said Serna, “There’s a whole different way you cook outside.”

Serna will receive free entry to a Texas Outdoor Family Workshop of her choice for up to six people.

As the founder of North Texas Kids Outside, an organization that helps connects families with the outdoors, Serna said she already has a family in mind with whom she would like to share her prize.

“Food is such a big part of the camping experience,” she said. “Everyone can pitch in. It’s a time to bond and get to know each other.”

All recipes submitted in the contest are featured on Pinterest and the Texas Parks and Wildlife website.

Texas Parks and Wildlife has created a series of cooking videos on its YouTube channel. The dutch oven segments have proven to be especially popular with nearly 300,000 views.
