A favorite recipe of mine are these Low Carb Guacamole Chicken Enchiladas. 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.
