Keto White Chicken Enchiladas Recipe Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Precook the chicken or use rotisserie chicken, shredded. Set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the butter, cream cheese, heavy cream, 2 cups of Monterey Jack cheese, diced green chilies, and chicken broth. Stir until smooth and creamy.
  4. Use a 9 x 13 casserole dish, add about 2 to 3 tablespoons of shredded chicken and shredded cheese to each tortilla and roll it up. Place the tortilla face down in the casserole dish so the enchilada doesn’t unroll.

  7. Bake for 22 minutes until the dish is completely warmed and the cheese is melted. Turn the heat up to broil for the last 3 minutes to brown the cheese.

    These are excellent! One quick thing: the directions don’t quite add up to the amount of cheese you suggest. It says to put 2 cups in the sauce, and sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup on top, but what about the stuff in each enchilada? I remedied it myself by grating up the last of my cheese block (had to buy two 8-oz ones) and using that, with yummy results, but you might want to edit the recipe.

    My tastebuds didn’t know the difference!!! I’ve missed enchiladas since I’ve started keto, so THANK YOU!!!

    It’s in the oven now, I made a half recipe. I’m confused about the cheese, though. While I believe there’s no such thing as too much cheese, there are 2 1/2 cups in the ingredients but the directions state to put 2 cups in the sauce AND add it with the chicken to the enchiladas AND sprinkle 1/2 cup on top. Should there be more cheese or less in the sauce?

    I can’t wait to taste them, time to broil!

  4. Absolutely delicious! Ended up using 3-3.25 c of cheese total after all steps were complete. Cheese Measurements are incorrect. I also used 3 c of boiled chicken breast & mission carb balance tortilla. My kids and “keto resistant” husband enjoyed them.
