Hello hello! I am insanely busy right now with some major projects I’ll be revealing to you guys in the coming months. In the mean time, I wanted to share a few things I’m enjoying recently and hope you might try them, too!
These amazing enchiladas can be made with cauliflower, but you could use the chicken pizza crust instead and bring the magic that way.
My enchiladas are made with pizza sauce (Wal-Mart Great Value band) and is super easy and wonderful. And because it’s made with pizza sauce, you’re looking at only 3 net carbs per quarter cup–which goes a long way.
Worst-case, let’s say you’re in a major hurry? Skip making the shells and wrap your enchiladas in your favorite, thin-sliced deli meat instead!

3 cups mozzarella or Monterey jack cheese
Makes 12 shells.
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, chopped and crushed
1Tbsp chili powder
4 Tbsp oil of your choice
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup pizza sauce (or tomato sauce)
2 cups Cheddar Cheese, shredded
2 cups Pepper Jack or Monterey Jack, shredded
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cook and stir onion, garlic and chili powder in 4 Tbsp oil in a pan on the stove over medium heat, until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add oregano, cumin, salt, pepper and tomato sauce. Stir until sauce is heated.
Take each shell and dip into heated enchilada sauce and then place golden-side up into an ungreased 9X13” casserole pan. Add ¼ C Monterey jack or a mix of cheddar jack cheese in each shell. Roll and place seam-side down in pan until all shells have been used. Top with remaining enchilada sauce and cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and golden.
Pour remaining tomato mixture over enchiladas, and top with the rest of the cheese. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Optional: Top with shredded lettuce, olives and chopped, fresh tomato.
