These Paleo Enchiladas will have you reaching for seconds. Made with leftover chicken, the paleo tortillas are then smothered in enchiladas sauce and topped with dairy-free cheese.

Grain free Enchiladas

After I created my paleo tortilla recipe, all I could think about was making paleo 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 leftover chicken or beef to keep the meal prep simple.  

I spend enough time planning out meals and making so much from scratch that anytime I can skip some steps, I will take it.

The paleo tortillas take the longest amount of time to make but oh mama, I was in  heaven when I was eating this dish.

Grain free Enchiladas

 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.

FILLING

How to Make This Paleo Enchiladas Recipe:

In a skillet combine the chicken, onion, garlic, salt and pepper and coconut oil and cook until the chicken is browned and done.

Set aside.

In an 8″ x 8″ baking dish, pour enough sauce to cover the bottom, roughly 1 cup.

Take your Paleo Tortillas and scoop 1 – 2 tablespoons of chicken and then add a pinch of cheese.

Roll the wrap around the filling and place with the seam side down in the baking dish.

When the wraps are all in the pan, cover the wraps with the remaining enchiladas sauce.

Sprinkle on more cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
