Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas- a low carb, Trim Healthy Mama friendly TEXMEX dish!

(This post may contain affiliate links from Amazon and Trim Healthy Mama.)

I was finally able to update my Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas recipe. This recipe is by far, one of my favorites! It is so packed full of the TexMex flavor you won’t be disappointed!

Y’all, these are heavenly! And the greatest thing about them is they are “low carb” so will work with your Trim Healthy Mama Lifestyle! I find my low carb tortillas at my local grocery store. They usually range from 3-4 carbs each tortilla. If you find the big tortillas fill them as full as you can and you will be able to have one big one.

Another way you can enjoy these Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas is as a casserole. That will cut back on the use of the tortillas. I would layer chicken, cheese, sauce and then tortilla, repeat.

If you want to stay away from the gluten or extra carbs try layering this with broccoli, cauliflower, or even zucchini! This would make one scrumptious casserole!

Once constructed how you’d like simply cover these Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas with foil and bake! This dish would make a terrific dinner to bring to a party or given as a gift. Believe me, they will be a big hit!

I like to serve these with a scoop of guacamole and a side salad. For the salad, you can use a ranch or even a salsa as the dressing. A couple of these enchiladas will fill you up! This keeps you in a S mode for my Trim Healthy Mama friends!

I hope you enjoy my favorite recipe! And if you like these try my Sour Cream Beef Enchiladas! Also, be sure to make this Creamy Jalapeno Ranch Dressing!
