Indulge in this creamy chicken low carb version of your classic red sauce enchiladas. These keto white sauce green chili chicken enchiladas are smothered in white sauce, green chilies and filled with flavorful chicken. Your family will love this twist on their favorite Mexican comfort food!
These white chicken enchiladas are milder than the red sauce version, but you don’t have to skip out on the heat if you don’t want to. Chop up some jalapenos and add them to your sauce to spice this things up.
A pan full of ten creamy enchiladas makes the perfect meal for a family or leftovers to enjoy during the week. The filling and topping for each enchilada is only 3g total carbs and 2g nets carbs which allows you to still stay in ketosis or low carb with the tortilla of your choice.
So, what are your tortilla options?
- Buy them online or in the store. To save time you can buy low carb or keto wraps/tortillas. Most of them will be made from cassava flour, coconut flour or almond flour. Just make sure they are pliable enough to fold and hold the filling.
- Make your own tortillas. I made my own for this recipe and they turned out amazing. There are multiple low carb and keto recipes for tortillas online. Here is the link to the recipe I used.
