Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

If you’re still looking for ways to hide veggies from your kids in their meals, these enchiladas were made for you. These are packed with onions, mushrooms, zucchini, and beans which are hidden by cheese and chicken. These flavorful enchiladas will have even the pickiest of eaters wanting more! And did I mention that there is 4 grams of fiber per enchilada?!

Now, before I get the comments and DMs saying enchiladas are traditionally made with corn tortillas, I know. If you wanna make this recipe gluten-free, you can absolutely sub out for some corn tortillas. I personally prefer these enchiladas with flour tortillas as that’s how my mother always made her’s growing up. 

I used simple Mission-style tortillas here. No high-fiber, low carb, keto type tortilla here. These are just normal tortillas. Don’t we miss the days of normal? Let the fiber come from the beans and the veggies! 

This recipe makes 10 enchiladas. Each enchilada on its own is about 300 cal. Believe me, these are filling, so I am providing the macros for 10 servings of one enchilada a piece. Personally, I had two last night, but actually could’ve done with just one and a half. These are filling and packed with flavor!
