Low Carb Enchiladas Recipe

Homemade keto enchiladas are easier than you think. A savory ground beef mixture is wrapped in a keto protein tortilla and smoothered in a spicy homemade enchiladas sauce. Then topped with lots of cheese. This recipe ditches the traditional low carb tortilla for something more keto friendly. These enchiladas are assembled using cold cuts. You’ll be amazed how scrumptious this keto dinner is!

Even better, this is one low carb casserole recipe that you can meal prep ahead of time or freeze so you can always have a keto dinner option ready to go when you need it.

Keto Tortillas

Although store bought low carb tortillas can be used in this keto enchilada recipe, many of them contain gluten which you may be avoiding. This recipe uses sliced chicken or turkey meat from the deli as a tortilla. The benefit of using this protein tortilla is that it has no carbs. A store bought low carb tortilla can contain up to 6 net carbs in one tortilla!

Deli chicken slices are flexible and can roll up just like a tortilla. They are delicious in this dish and you won’t even notice that they aren’t a true tortilla!

Low Carb Enchilada Sauce

This low carb enchilada recipe uses a homemade enchilada sauce that is easy to make. You can substitute with canned enchilada sauce if you are looking for convenience; however, nothing beats the flavor of homemade enchilada sauce.

This sauce recipe is very simple. It does require a blender or food processer to puree the tomatoes and chiles together. If you don’t own one of those appliances, you can still make this enchilada sauce. Just make sure you diced your chiles and crush up the tomatoes as small as possible. You could even substitute with crushed tomatoes or diced tomatoes in the sauce recipe.

Make Ahead and Keto Freezer Meal

As mentioned above, these keto enchiladas can be prepped ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator to bake later. I have prepped my enchiladas in the morning and then cooked them later in the evening when I’m short on time.

You have the option to freeze the enchiladas as well. After the enchiladas are assembled, cover in platic wrap and then a sheet of aluminum foil. Place in the freezer until ready to use. To reheat frozen keto enchiladas, bake at 350 degrees with foil on (plastic wrap removed) for 30 minutes. Remove foil and cook for an additional 15 to 20 minutes.
