What is an Enchilada?
An enchilada is a traditional Mexican dish made with your choice of meat, the most common being ground beef or chicken. The meat is mixed with spices and cheese then rolled into a tortilla, covered with cheese and enchilada sauce. Enchilada sauce is either red or green and made from chiles. It usually has a more vinegar base than salsa.
What makes these Enchiladas Keto approved?
These keto breakfast enchiladas are great for any low carb or keto way of life because the carbs are reduced by changing out the tortilla. Since the keto diet has become so popular, there are many low carb tortilla options available, including homemade recipes. Our enchilada recipe has also been customized to increase the fat and protein.
How do you make Enchiladas not soggy?
Enchiladas are actually suppose to be soft, but not soggy. To prevent them from becoming soggy, the easiest thing to do is add less sauce. Instead of covering them completely, drizzle a small amount on top of them and skip adding sauce to the bottom of the baking dish.
Our recipe does not call for adding sauce to the bottom. Another way, but it takes more time, is to pan fry each stuffed rolled tortilla first to get it a little crispy. We prefer the less sauce, more cheese method!

Those ingredients should be cool to the touch so they do not make the tortilla soft, this makes it easier to roll. Here is how to make the recipe, enjoy!

Yes you can freeze once cooked. Or refrigerate and use personal preference, but I never eat leftovers after the second day maybe 3.
