Keto Tortillas – I use either the Keto Tortillas recipe or my Keto Soft Wraps Premix. Other great options for low carb tortillas are our Keto Wraps recipe or you could use Mission Carb Balance Tortillas for readymade store-bought options.
Chicken – I use chicken breast fillets which you can swap to chicken thigh fillets if you prefer. Cooked shredded chicken can be stirred through the sauce and used as well.
Enchilada Sauce – my Enchilada Sauce recipe takes just 5 minutes to prepare and is sooo worth it. In a pinch just mix some seasoning with tomato puree.
How to Make It
Saute onion – place a large skillet over medium heat. Add the oil, onion, garlic, and taco seasoning; sauté until the onion is soft.
Cook chicken – add chicken; cook, turning, occasionally until the chicken is cooked through. Fold through 3/4 cup of enchilada sauce. Transfer to a bowl.
Preheat oven to 180°C fan/200°C static/350°F. Spoon 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce into the base of a 18 x 24 cm /7 x 10 inch baking pan.
Fill & Roll – Lay tortilla flat and fill with 2-3 tablespoons of chicken. Sprinkle with cheese and roll. Place seam-side down into the baking tray. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Bake – pour enchilada sauce over and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Bake 15-20 minutes until cheese has melted and is deliciously golden.
What to Serve with Chicken Enchiladas
These are some of my most favourites toppings to serve with this low carb Mexican chicken enchiladas recipe.
Chili Con Queso – deliciously spiced cheese sauce
Guacamole – so tasty and a great source of fat.
Pickled Jalapeños – I honestly always have my own jalapeno escabeche (pickled jalapenos) in the fridge. Even now I have about 1kg of jalapenos in the fridge. The link takes you to my amazing keto recipe that has zero sugar.
Also, if you just don’t have any low carb tortillas handy you could make a chicken enchilada casserole with or without tortillas. Just fill the baking dish with the filling, top with cheese and bake. Serve with toppings or keto corn chips.
