Ingredients

  • 12 oz package cream cheese full fat
  • 2 8 oz cans of salsa verde
  • 1/2 lb ground beef or shredded chicken
  • 1 cup white onion chopped
  • 1 Tbsp homemade taco seasoning
  • 8-10 low carb tortillas I use these
  • 12 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • chopped green onions for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. While the oven is preheating, prepare the meat.
  • If you are using chicken, you will have to make sure it's pre-cooked and shredded. Caramelize the onions in a pan with a tsp or so with butter or the oil of your choice. Combine onions, chicken, and homemade taco seasoning.
  • If you are using beef, brown the beef and onions together in a pan, incorporating the homemade taco seasoning during cooking.
  • Over medium heat, mix together the cream cheese and salsa verde until the cream cheese is melted and the ingredients are incorporated.
  • Spread about 1/4 cup of the cream cheese sauce in the bottom of as shallow baking dish. Assemble the enchiladas by placing 1/4 cup of meat mixture and 1/4 cup of shredded cheese on each tortilla. Wrap the tortillas tight and line them close together in the baking dish.
  • Once the tortillas are assembled, pour the remaining sauce evenly over the enchiladas. Top with remaining cheese.
  • Cover pan loosely with tin foil and bake enchiladas for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees. Optionally, remove the tin foil and set the oven to broil for 2-3 minutes to crisp the cheese slightly on top.
  • Garnish with chopped green onion, cool slightly, and serve warm!
