I created this recipe because we're headed into football season, it's fall, and we wanted some new snack foods to have out for games. We wanted something that our health-conscious teenagers would feel good about eating and something that our other teens would eat because the food was just that good.
These keto enchilada bites check all the boxes.
How Do You Prefer Your Enchiladas?
Red Sauce vs. Green Sauce
I grew up eating enchiladas with the traditional red sauce. But, my current favorite are enchiladas with tomatillo (green) sauce. When I was a teen, my mom used to make enchiladas with tomatillo sauce and I would never touch them because I just didn't like green food.
Just in the past couple of years, I tried the green tomatillo sauce and I fell in love with it. These days, I love tomatillos and I’m always looking for different tomatillos sauces to drizzle on top of foods.
Enchiladas are comfort food for me. I love the Real Good Foods version because they taste just like the enchiladas mom used to make. I love to top them like mom always did with sour cream and shredded lettuce. But today, we're going to mix it up with a satisfying keto enchilada bite that has a hearty crunch.
The microwave cooking instructions for the two flavor options of Real Good Foods enchiladas are very similar. Cook on high for three minutes and then let it sit for one minute. This means you can have lunch ready in four minutes flat.
In a conventional oven, you’re looking at 400° for 20 minutes which always creates a better texture in our opinion.
Air Fryer Method
We decided to test out how well our air fryer makes these enchiladas. Our air fryer only took 10 minutes to cook two packages of Real Good Foods enchiladas which is half the time of a conventional oven cooking but gave it that nice texture that the microwave can’t match. So using an air fryer will cut your oven time down by half.
They make for a great meal in and of themselves. They are a regular on our meal plan every month, especially during busy weeks when we just don’t have time to meal plan or cook in advance.
