Easy Low Carb Guacamole Chicken Enchiladas
A favorite recipe of mine are these Low Carb Guacamole Chicken Enchiladas. When you are looking for a healthy dinner recipe, these hit the spot! I haven’t made them in a long time, so when we finally got some spring like weather here in Texas, I whipped some up and invited friends to dine with us on our patio. After a long day of gardening and spring cleaning, these enchiladas hit the spot!
For a quick meal, I buy a cooked rotisserie chicken from our grocery store deli and ready made guacamole. Then all you have to do is shred the chicken and assemble your enchiladas! A delicious quick and easy dinner.
Make a few batches of this recipe and freeze one for later. This is a perfect meal for the family, entertaining guests or simple patio dinning!
I’m now craving this dish and spring weather again as we are iced in and have no school today! I hope you enjoy it.

This recipe is much lower in carbs that most of my recipes, but definitely not no carbs. Rice is only a side dish in the photos. Eating one of these enchiladas along with a salad is one of my favorite meals when I go onto low carb diets.
I don’t mean to be negative but I don’t really see how this is low carb at all when you’re using tortillas and rice?! I feel calling this meal low carb is extremely misleading.
Made this tonight and it was delicious!!! I could only find Taco sauce (not sure if it is similar) but it still turned out great! Thanks so much!
Me too! It’s sooo good and hard to eat only a few enchiladas! Thanks for stopping by:-)
these sound great! any kind of Mexican food is my weakness. could eat it everyday.
This looks AMAZING!! I love guacamole and love enchiladas. Having the two combined is brilliant!! I can’t wait to try.
