HealthyFoodRecipe - For me, the low-carb/keto lifestyle decision was made very difficult by the fact that one of the cuisines I love the most, Mexican, seemed to be off limits.

And that was a game changer!! Once that recipe happened in my kitchen, and the Mr loved it, a whole new world opened up to me!

I asked Kevin what the first keto Mexican recipe he wanted me to try and, without batting an eye, he said my Low-Carb Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas.

Once I decided on that recipe, I decided I wanted to make it not only keto friendly but as easy as possible.
