Low Carb Enchiladas Suizas – Keto Enchiladas Suisse Recipe

We successfully tackled a favorite recipe for Enchiladas Suizas, also called Enchiladas Suisse. This delicious, creamy, casserole-style dish easily lends itself to a low carb version with a few alterations from the original recipe.

The original recipe comes from the popular cookbook Some Like It South! by the Junior League of Pensacola. You can find out more about the Junior League and the cookbook at https://www.juniorleagueofpensacola.org/

For this low carb version, we needed to replace the tortillas with a low carb alternatives. You can use a commercial low carb tortilla if that fits in your diet plan and goals. Otherwise, we recommend using the popular Low Carb Tortilla recipe from our friends Matt & Megha at the popular blog Keto Connect. It can be found at https://www.ketoconnect.net/low-carb-tortillas/.

      1. Hi there it’s me, I am also visiting this site regularly, this website is really good and the users are really sharing pleasant thoughts.

      2. Hey Wes!
        I had a question about the recipe which says:
        “8 can can tomato sauce + 1 can water”

        Do you mean 8 oz can? Not sure what 8 can can means!
        Thanks! Looking forward to trying the recipe!

        Hi Wes!
        I see you corrected the tomato sauce but now the green chilies say can can. I remembered because I made my shopping list from the video. What in the world is your computer doing 😹 Thanks for the great recipe. I made it once before and am so looking forward to having it again!

          Thanks, Tara! I corrected the recipe to say “4oz can.” Sometimes, when the Recipe Card software automatically updates, it causes some errors. Thanks for pointing it out so I could fix it. Enjoy! 🙂
