Keto Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas

June 14, 2018Laura

I’m a big believer that you can follow a low carb/ketogenic lifestyle and still enjoy the foods that you love. I love enchiladas and am so glad they’re something I’m still able to eat on occasion. I wanted something a little bit different than the usual chicken ones that I make and these turned out to be so delicious! I am a huge fan of buffalo everything and these enchiladas did not disappoint!

For this recipe, I used low carb tortilla shells, shredded chicken, enchilada sauce, buffalo wing sauce and Mexican blend cheese. Once they were finished baking, I garnished them with extra buffalo sauce and green onion slices. You can also serve them with ranch or blue cheese dressing. Cauliflower rice is a great side option as well, especially a Mexican style cauli rice. I stored the leftovers in the fridge and they re-heated perfectly the next day for lunch! If you give these enchiladas a try, I hope you enjoy them!

Keto Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas

  • Prep time: 15 minutes
  • Cook time: 25 minutes
  • Serves: 5
  • Calories 285

Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups shredded chicken
  • 1 cup enchilada sauce
  • 1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce, plus extra to taste
  • 1.5 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 5 large low carb tortillas

Method

  • 1)

    Cook and shred the chicken. I cook mine in the Instant Pot with chicken broth on manual/high pressure for 20 minutes. Manually release pressure and shred with two forks. You can also use a rotisserie chicken.

  • 2)

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

  • 3)

    Mix enchilada sauce with buffalo sauce and stir well. Spread a thin layer onto the bottom of baking dish.

  • 4)

    To assemble enchiladas: Spread 2 Tbsp of enchilada sauce/buffalo sauce mixture onto bottom of each tortilla. Top with shredded chicken and add a sprinkle of cheese. Roll up and place seam side down into pan.

  • 5)

    Once assembled, spoon remaining sauce on top of tortillas and top with remaining shredded cheese.

  • 6)

    Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Broil for 2-3 minutes, if needed. Garnish with sliced green onions and extra buffalo sauce, if desired.
