Enchiladas

Can one make enchilada's and leave out the tortilla and just put the ingredients in a casserole dish and just spoon it out?

I've done it with lc tortilla's. To get a little more mileage out of a few of them so it won't add too many carbs, cut them in strips and layer it kinda like a lasgna.

Trader Joes do not. Fawn gave me the heads up to this. The only ones I have found that do not. I like the idea of cutting them in strips...more bang for your buck, lol.

We do not have a Trader Joes. If I have to eat a tortilla with soy I would rather not eat a tortilla.

Pizza without the crust.
Enchiladas without the tortilla.
Hamburgers without the bun.

Personally, they all look different, but taste about the same as the original. I don't miss the carbohydrate "filler".

You are so right! Tonight I am having lasagna without the noodle, just the meat mixture with ricotta and topped with cheese. I can't wait!

Yes but you can also do things like make "faux enchilada shells" using Sherrie's bun recipe and also even Oopsie rolls when rolled flat with a rolling pin will roll up like a tortilla.

But another thing you can do is get Deli Chicken or Turkey and have them slice it about about 3/32" thick and use it to roll up! Or you can use steakums. Or you can use Cleo's Pizza dough recipes made smaller.

Gotta watch the sauces, those babies can toss in some serious carbs on you.

Wifey was working with some bbq sauce the other day only to realize, to the horror of all of us, that the darn thing had 16g of carbs per serving!

I bet it would be great with any kind of unsweetened thin low carb thin pancake or crepe or pizza crust. It would also be great over low-caarb pasta.

You know the low carb pizza recipe where you take ground beef and you press it into a pan and then add pizza toppings and bake it. I bet this would be good if you pressed ground beef or chicken pressed into a pan and then topped the beef/chicken with enchiladas innards and bake.

I bought a bag of already grilled fully cooked chicken strips, Sprayed an 8X10 glass baking dish and put half the bag in the pan.

1 medium onion
4 oz green chili's sauted in 1 tbl butter.
Melted 8 oz block of cream cheese
topped chicken with mix
Poured 1 sm can of green enchilada sauce over the top
topped with monterey jack cheese

It's baking. Hope it turns out well.
My side dish is probably silly. I am frying thin green beans with mexican seasoning on it. I've made these before with steak montery seasoning so hopefully this will be good too.

Thanks everyone.

Want to quickly note these are not for induction because of the tomato sauce.

Cheese Enchiladas at the link above in the recipes forum with a picture. Nutritional information will be coming soon.
