Low Carb Christmas Recipes

FELIZ NAVIDAD... 

IT'S A LOW CARB CALIFORNIA CHRISTMAS FIESTA!

We low carbers tend to think that Mexican food is “off limits”... 
NOT! This girl lives in California and I have some awesome 
recipes from friends for some Mexican food that is “music for 
your mouth”... not to mention your tummy! 

CHICKEN ENCHILADAS 

Before you start to build the enchiladas... whip out that Girl 
Scout motto and “be prepared”! You can fix this stuff a couple of 
days in advance and then “whip it together” for your guests or 
for a quick supper after a day of Christmas shopping. 

Okie dokie... prepare the Chile Sauce recipe below and refrigerate 
so its READY. Also, cook the chicken and “chop it”! 

“Oil-righty then”... here we go...

CHILE SAUCE

1/2 cup onion, chopped 
1 garlic clove, finely crushed 
2 tablespoons olive oil 
1 tablespoon whole wheat pastry flour 
1/8 cup chili powder (if you like it hotter, add more!)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 
1/4 teaspoon dried cumin 
1 teaspoon salt 
2 cups pureed tomatoes (lowest carb count you can find) 
1 chicken bouillon cube 

Cook the onion and garlic in the olive oil until onions are 
clear. Sprinkle flour and stirring quickly, cook for one minute. 

Add remaining ingredients mixing well and stirring often. Simmer 
for about 10 minutes. 

Makes two cups.

Now for the Enchiladas...

FIRST... prepare the Filling (recipe below):

FILLING:

1/2 cup onion, chopped 
2 tablespoons butter 
2 cups cooked chicken, chopped or shredded... your preference
1 cup Chili Sauce 
1 cup sour cream
Salt to taste 

Sauté onion in butter and add other ingredients. Set aside while 
preparing tortillas for BUILDING enchiladas! 

Now let’s build enchiladas...

Olive oil 
12 low carb tortillas 
2 cups cream
1 cup chicken stock 
1 1/2 cups Jack cheese grated 

Heat oil in heavy skillet and cook tortillas just a few seconds. 
Combine the cream and chicken stock until well blended. 

After cooking each tortilla, dip each one in the chicken stock 
and cream mixture. Spread filling mixture on the tortillas (kinda 
like peanut butter on a sandwich), roll the tortilla, placing the 
seam side down on a baking dish. By the way, this dish should be 
big enough to hold 12 of these puppies! 

After all tortillas are filled and rolled, pour the remaining 
liquid over them. Sprinkle with cheese and bake in a 350° oven 
until hot and cheese is melted... about 25 minutes. 

Serves 12

Carb count for Total Recipe: 
107 grams carbs/19 grams fiber = 88 net grams of carbs 
ADD the carb count for your tortillas! 

WOW... this is ONLY 7.3 grams of carbs per serving and if you ADD 3 net grams for the tortilla it is still only 10.3 grams for a very special treat. 

Who says low carb cooking is boring??
