    I made this for dinner with friends last weekend…it was FABULOUS! I followed the recipe to a tee, including making the keto enchilada sauce. We have leftovers in the freezer.

    This will definitely be something I make frequently! Even my non-keto friends loved it!

    Thanks so much!

    • Hello Cathy, so glad you enjoyed the enchilada casserole. It’s funny how often we serve keto recipes and nobody else knows but still loves it.

    Was so good! I used Costco frozen cauliflower rice! Microwaved it about 1/2 way the recommended time and drain it. Added a fresh jalapeño, too

  3. Hello! I was wondering, can you buy Raw Cauliflower Rice (and any suggestions on brands?)–or is that something you have to make yourself. I’m always looking to save time in my recipes!

  5. This was absolutely delicious! I made a couple small tweaks to fit in with what I had and how lazy of a cook I can be, but my non-keto friends went nuts over this. Nobody missed the traditional corn tortillas. Such a winner!

    • Hi Heather,

      I’m so glad you love it! We just keep eating it until it is all gone!! You could always use the casserole as a filling for tacos or burritos, or even throw it into a pie crust and make little savory pies.

  7. This recipe is pretty darned amazing. I’ve made it with ground beef w/a serving of chorizo and chicken w/a serving of chorizo. Today I’m going to make it exactly as written. This is a family favorite. My mom doesn’t even care that she “has to” eat it 3 days in a row, she’s mostly just happy. And so am ! =D Thank you!

  8. I made this for dinner tonight. It is so delicious. My family loved it and my son said it tastes like enchiladas. I cooked the cauli rice in a skillet with butter, 1 tsp chili powder, 1/4 tsp cumin, 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper and 8 oz tomato sauce. I left it al dente. Then I placed it into the bottom of my 9 x 13 glass baking dish. I used 2 each 10 oz cans of el paso enchilada sauce in the sauce mixture for the chicken. I left the amount of sour cream and seasonings the same. It was so delicious. Thank you for the recipe.
