Today we will show you how to prepare a delicious enchilada sauce.  This sauce will be perfect for many Mexican dishes.

Of course, we have slightly changed the original recipe to keep it healthy and keto-friendly. Store-bought sauce tends to have unwanted ingredients such as vegetable oil, corn starch, sugar, artificial color and flavor.

The sauce enchilada can be white, green and red. We will prepare a red version. Thanks to hot pepper, this sauce will spice your dish up and also makes it incredibly tasty and beautiful!

One of the main ingredients is chicken broth which is collagen-rich and nutritious and will give your dish a very rich taste.

To keep it sugar-free, we can use a little bit of erythritol, monk fruit or any keto-friendly sweetener.

There is also a selection of special herbs and seasonings that make the sauce extraordinarily aromatic.

The must-have ingredient in enchilada is chili pepper which has unique properties to accelerate metabolism. After all, there is a special substance in capsicum – capsaicin. It stimulates the production of enzymes that are involved in the burning of fats and accelerating the metabolism (1).

This sauce can be served to a variety of dishes, both to meat and vegetables. We used this sauce to make this Zucchini Chicken Enchiladas dish!
