Keto Enchiladas Recipe
As we always say, you should preheat the pan first before you start cooking anything. Now take a large pan and start to preheat it. When the pan is hot enough, pour 2 tablespoons of avocado oil on it. When the oil is hot, add the diced onions and fry them until they soften. Add the minced or crushed garlic while continuing to fry.
Remove the well-sauteed garlic and onion from the pan and put them in a bowl. Set it wait aside. You can use the same pan without washing it to add canned whole tomatoes. Do not forget to turn on the stove. You can start mashing the whole tomatoes you added with a wooden spoon or spatula. Add 1 cup of beef broth. Let it boil a while and add chipotle chiles. Add cumin while continuing to mix. Now leave it for a while and let it boil on its own. At the end of the process you will get a granular red sauce.
Now take that sauce out of the pan and put it in a deep bowl and keep it aside. Wash your pan. Because we will continue to use the same one. Heat the remaining avocado oil in the same pan and add ground beef. Break beef out with wood spoon and start sautéing. While continuing to sauté, use salt and a little more cumin for taste. You can now add the onion-garlic mixture that we cooked in the first step over the meat. Put it in a deep bowl.
Put the red granulated sauce you cooked in the second step into the blender or use the immersion blender to run it until it is smooth. Add some salt before running it. Add coriander on the meat you take in a deep bowl, then add some shredded monterey jack cheese. Add 1 cup of the tomato sauce mixture and mix well.
Now start preheating your oven. Then, pour 3 tablespoons of the tomato sauce mixture into the bottom of an ovenproof bowl and spread it with a brush or spoon. Take one of the thin slices deli chicken in the palm of your hand and put some of this meaty mixture in the middle. Roll it up and place it on the baking tray. Continue to roll and place them on the bottom of the tray until the chicken slices and meat mixture is finished. Pour the rest of the tomato sauce mixture over the rolls. Make sure the sauce is touching all the rolls using a spoon or brush.
Pour the remaining grated cheese on top. Put in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Transfer to serving plates and sprinkle with chopped cilantro and serve.
