Chicken Cheesy Enchiladas with Green Sauce

Yes, it’s low carb, but no, you don’t have to be a low-carb eater to enjoy these. They’re easy, fast and deee-licious! Serve them with sour cream and a slice or two of fresh ripe avocado. You could use shredded rotisserie chicken to make it even easier.  I calculated appx. 12 net carbs per enchilada. So much better than the usual enchilada made with regular tortillas. These enchiladas are so large that you really won’t eat more than 1, and if you eat more than that you probably aren’t on a low carb diet anyway.
