PREPRATION TIME:

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • PREP TIME: 25 MINS
  • COOK TIME: 20 MINS
  • TOTAL TIME: 45 MINS

Ingredients :

    • 1 pound ground beefI use 85% lean
    • 1 medium yellow onionchopped
    •  1 tablespoon avocado oil
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 10- ounce bag frozen cauliflower rice
    • keto friendly wrapsI use these Crepini Egg Thins that I get at Sprouts in the fridge section next to the gluten free breads
    • 1 cup Mexican blend shredded cheese
    • 1 batch homemade keto red enchilada sauceor 1 cup of your favorite store bought enchilada sauce
    • Toppings: chopped cilantroavocado, sour cream, jalapeno, olives, etc.

Instructions :

    • Preheat your oven to 350ºF with the oven rack in the middle.
    • Heat your cast iron skillet over medium heat. When the pan is warm, add the avocado oil, onion, ground beef + salt. Cook, breaking up the beef and stirring occasionally, until the beef is almost cooked through and the onions are soft, about 5-10 minutes.
  • Add in the frozen cauliflower rice to the ground beef, and continue cooking until the cauliflower rice is thawed and all the moisture is absorbed, another 5 minutes. The cauliflower rice will absorb all the flavor of the ground beef, stretching out the amount of meat for a fraction of the cost. Plus, it gets more veggies into the dish! One of my favorite hacks.
  • Last, stir in 1/4 cup of the enchilada sauce into the ground beef mixture. Take it off the heat, and stir to combine.
  • Assemble the enchiladas. Start by putting about 1/4 cup layer of the enchilada sauce in the bottom of your 9×13 baking dish. Then, lay out a wrap and spoon on a scant 1/4 cup of the ground beef mixture. Top with 1 tablespoon shredded cheese. Roll it up like a cigar and place it in the baking dish. Repeat with the remaining wraps until your baking dish is full.
  • Top with about 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce (or more if preferred) and a layer of shredded cheese.
  • Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes, until the enchiladas are warmed through and the cheese is melted.
  • Serve warm topped with desired toppings.
  • Leftovers will keep in an airtight container refrigerated for at least 5 days, or frozen for at least 6 months.

Notes:

Meat Substitutions: You can use any ground meat you prefer. Ground turkey, chicken or pork would work great too! 

Dairy Free: If you want these to be dairy free, you can leave out the shredded cheese. After they’re done baking, top with my dairy free cashew queso!

Serving Size: Serving is 3 enchiladas per person. This recipe easily makes 12.

Nutrition: I calculated the nutrition information on just the enchiladas. I didn’t include any toppings since the toppings you use will vary.

Meal Prep Instructions: Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. HEATING: Microwave until warm, about 3-5 minutes (I like to sprinkle in a little water to help it steam and prevent it from drying out). Or reheat in a 350ºF oven until warm, 10-15 minutes.

Freezing Instructions: Freeze in a freezer safe airtight container for at least 6 months. You can either freeze a whole batch of enchiladas in a baking dish, or individual servings in a meal prep container. To reheat a whole batch in a baking dish, bake from frozen for 35-40 minutes until heated through. For reheating individual portion sizes in a meal prep container, microwave from frozen until warm, about 5-8 minutes. You could also thaw in the fridge overnight and it would reduce the reheat time for both methods.
