Keto Ground Beef Enchiladas Ingredients

– Tortillas: I used low carb tortillas for this recipe. You can find them at most grocery stores in the dietary aisle.

– Ground beef: I used ground beef that was 85% fat. You can use any ground beef that you like.

– Enchilada sauce: I used a store bought enchilada sauce, but you can make your own if you prefer.

– Cheddar cheese: I used cheddar cheese, but you could use any cheese that you like for example pepper jack for a bit of a kick.

– Green chilies: I used canned green chilies. You can find them in the international aisle of most grocery stores.

– Onion: I used a white onion, but you could use any onion that you like.

– Spices: I used chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper to flavor the ground beef.

– Sour cream: I used sour cream to top the enchiladas, but you could also use plain yogurt.
