Top with your favorite garnishes



Let’s talk ingredients…

  • sausage: I used regular, but turkey or chicken sausage would be great as well. Even chorizo!


Peppers and onions: I used a combo of colors and they really make the flavors sing!


Eggs: The eggs get scrambled and mixed in and are so delicious!


Mexican cheese: You can use Monterey Jack cheese if you have that instead!


•  Low carb tortillas: You can find so many wonderful options at the store now, pick your favorite!

Heavy cream: This is what makes the sauce soo creamy!

Salsa verde: You can also use a can of green enchilada sauce if you prefer. I love my chilies!

Cilantro: This is optional! Just omit if you don’t care for it..

Avocado, diced tomatoes, green onion, cilantro: These are a few ideas that you can put on top! Sour cream would also be scrumptious here.


Make ahead instructions:


It’s super easy to make these breakfast enchiladas ahead of time!


Just follow the recipe but before you bake it (and WITHOUT the sauce), put it in a sealed, airtight container and put them in the fridge.


When you are ready to cook them, mix up the enchilada sauce and put it on.

Bake it according to the directions and it’s ready in no time!

You have a delicious breakfast that is ready to eat in less than 25 minutes. This would be ideal for guests during the upcoming holiday season!
