LOW CARB CHICKEN ENCHILADA CASSEROLE

This low carb chicken enchilada casserole recipe will be loved by everyone, but the absence of tortillas makes it perfect for low carb or keto diets. You could add tortillas if you prefer as well.

I have two favorite foods, pizza, and enchiladas. If they were the only food available, I could eat them both every day and be happy. But when you follow a low carb diet, those are two types of foods that are notoriously full of carbs.

I’ve manaĝed to find a delicious low carb pizza recipe, and now I’ve come up with a low carb chicken enchilada casserole that will satisfy my cravinĝs for enchiladas and Mexican food.
