How to make the Best Ever Keto Enchilada

  1. Make the Best Ever Enchilada Sauce. This sauce makes the dish and dont skimp on those guajillo chillies. They are totally worth ordering online or purchasing from the local specialty food store. They add a rich earthy smokiness to Mexican food with a somewhat mild heat.
  2. I have included a choice of either breast or thighs. I totally recommend the breast for the Thermomix recipe as I find thighs just weird when they are cooked in the Thermomix as I believe they should be browned in a pan.
  3. Xanthan gun can be substituted for gelatin as a thickener should you not have any
  4. Use delicious fresh tomatoes if you have them otherwise the tinned variety is good. I use Rick and Thick Ardmona in mine when using canned tomatoes.
  5. You will also find my recipe for the Soft Tacos on the website which again is another completely simple recipe that you can make quickly or in advance at any time. They are also suitable to freeze.
