Grain-free Enchiladas

Sharing is caring!

Grain free Enchiladas After I created my grain-free wrap recipe, all I could think about was making enchiladas.

I spent a large portion of my years in Tucson and when my sisters and I went out to eat, I would always get enchiladas. First, this is a simple recipe and I highly recommend using left-over chicken or beef.   I spend enough time planning out meals and making so much from scratch that anytime I can skip some steps, I will take it. Grain free Enchiladas The paleo wraps take the longest amount of time to make but oh mama, I was in grain free enchiladas heaven when I was eating this dish.  I’m going to admit that I’ve made this two times this week.  Yes, two,  and I am contemplating a  third as a I write this.

    I’m always looking for ways to make my favorite foods paleo (or at least semi). Is the El Pato Red Chile Sauce readily available locally?

      I got it from Fred Meyer so you should be able to find something similar. It was in the Mexican food section and it had no weird ingredients in it!
