I love cheesy beefy enchiladas. I also love that I found high fiber, low carb tortillas to make my enchiladas with. Everything about enchiladas is already keto-friendly, but that tortilla… Thank goodness Ole makes Ole Xtreme Wellness! Tortilla Wraps, 8 each. “Easily create authentic meals with these OLE Mexican Foods Xtreme Wellness Tortillas. They provide a source of protein and contain no cholesterol, trans fat, or lard.

  • ground beef
  • Verde sauce
  • taco seasoning (or your favorite mix of spices)
  • onion
  • ro-tel tomatoes
  • shredded cheese
  • black olives (optional)
  • avocado (optional)
  • sour cream (optional)
  • green onion (garnish)

Start By Browning The Ground Beef

Break up the ground beef in the pan as you saute the meat and the onions. Once the meat is close to being done, add the seasonings and can of ro-tel. I also add a cup of cheese to the meat filling, but this is up to you. You can put the cheese in with each rolled-up enchilada for a more concentrated, cheesy flavor. But I like mine melted throughout.

Rolling The Beef Enchiladas

This is easier than rolling up burritos. I leave the ends open when I do enchiladas. Some people roll the ends too, and you can, if you like. I wish I’d filled mine more. I made five when I could have just made three and I think I would have liked that portion size better, and it would have saved me 5g carbs for the day, too.

Easy Peasy!

Throw them in the oven for about 10 min at around 400 degrees. Just long enough for the cheese to melt on top. Once you pull them out, add Verde sauce, sour cream, and olives. Sprinkle all over with chives (green onions) and you’re to impress.
