Low-Carb Enchiladas

I love enchiladas, but I almost never order them when I’m out because they are soooo freakin’ bad for you – mounds of fat, cheese, refined starch… But, now there’s me to the rescue. These are enchiladas that you can eat with no guilt at all, yet they still taste great!

Ingredients

2.5 cups pre-cooked chicken breast (shred by pulling apart with 2 forks) 578
2 x 14-15 oz. cans green enchilada sauce 279
8 La Tortilla Factory (or Mission) 6” low-carb, whole wheat tortillas (if you don’t use low carb tortillas, then you are NOT following directions) 400
1.5 cup low-fat cheddar cheese 480

2-4 tbs fresh cilantro (minced)
1 medium onion (quartered & sliced, not chopped) 43
