Keto enchiladas cure that Mexican food craving!

The result is a satisfying and delicious meal with all the flavors of typical enchiladas, without a ton of carbs. Ground beef enchiladas are one of my very favorite meals, and this is a tasty version my family enjoyed!

For this recipe, I figured nutrition for about a pound of beef over the entire recipe, prepared with my taco seasoning.

    Are you using a bagged 3-cheese blend? Maybe Kraft or Sargento?

    • Lina D

      Yes I am using a store brand Mexican cheese blend. You can use your favorite however. ThanKs !

  2. Sharon

    Just so I understand a serving is two enchiladas?

    • Lina D

      That is correct. Thanks!

  3. Kathryn

    How big are the cheese enchilada circles?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Kathryn! Each shell will be a 1/2 cup of cheese, evenly spread into a small circle. Hope that helps!

      • Kathryn

        Amber: My husband LOVED it! I added about a tbsp of diced mild Ortega chiles to my regular taco meat to give it a different flavor. He doesn’t care too much for green onions so I substituted avocado. He raved about every bite! Thank you!

        • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

          Yay! You’re very welcome! So great to hear that! Thanks a ton for the update!

    The recipe as provided by Hip2Keto is incomplete. The directions for the shell are there, but no information regarding red sauce or heating after filling the shell.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi Jim, I changed recipe to suggest that you warm enchilada sauce before pouring over cheese roll ups. You could heat in the oven after, but I feel like that’d melt your cheese shells. Thanks!
