Ingredients

  • 3 zucchini
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 jalapeño seeded and diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 16 ounces chicken breast or thighs, cooked and shredded (Use my Instant Pot Chicken)
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 6 ounces cheddar cheese divided
  • 1 cup enchilada sauce low carb

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13 x 9 baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Prepare the zucchini.
  • If you have a kitchen aid stand mixer and the super veggie tool, use that to make your “tortillas”.
  • Otherwise, use a vegetable slicer to slice long thin strips of zucchini.  Sprinkle zucchini with salt and allow to drain on paper towels for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, spray a large skillet with oil and add onion and jalapeno. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes, add garlic and cook one more minute.
  • Transfer vegetables to a bowl and stir in chicken.
  • Add sour cream and 1/2 cup of the cheese and stir to combine.
  • To fill the enchiladas, place four strips of zucchini lengthwise so that they overlap. Add chicken mixture on top, Roll up from one side and carefully transfer to the baking dish.
  • Top with enchilada sauce, and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the dish is heated through.
