An enchilada is basically a corn tortilla filled with some type of meat and covered with hot sauce. When it comes to making low-carb and gluten-free version of enchiladas, the corn tortilla can be replaced with zucchini slices or cheese shells.

We have made our keto-friendly version of chicken enchiladas using zucchini slices before, you can check our recipe here!

Today, we have made another keto-friendly version of enchilada using cheese shells as tortillas.

Cheese has always been a favourite food in the keto community. A combination of cheeses is a gourmand’s feast. Cheese is low in carbs and a great source of fat and protein. It contains high amounts of calcium, phosphorus, zinc, riboflavin, vitamins A and B12.

Our tortillas are made of cheddar and mozzarella cheese. Yes, they are entirely made of cheese! The filling is made of chicken with sauce.

We also top it up with sour cream and cilantro herb, which possesses good amounts of essential oils, antioxidants, and vitamins. It also gives our enchiladas a beautiful aroma.


Let’s Do It!

Mix cheddar and mozzarella in a bowl and divide them by 2 for 2 tortillas.

Fry cheese mixture for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese melts (you can also bake it in the oven too). Set aside and let it slightly cool. Meanwhile, enjoy the delicious smell of melted cheese.
