This enchilada recipe is one of my favorite healthier dishes I’ve made thus far. I love Mexican food of all kinds. I do enjoy making it at home because it allows me eat those things I love and not feel bad about doing so. Even with making any dish at home you can bet that it will probably be healthier than the one you’d order in a restaurant.
For a 1/4 of this is only 335 calories, 8 grams of fat, 23 grams of protein and 37 grams of carbs. I enjoy this on Weight Watchers as well. It’s 10 points per serving. So, I can eat it with out feeling bad.
This is made with Salsa chicken. For the recipe search “Salsa Chicken” in the search box on my page.
Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas
8 yellow corn tortillas
1 small can red enchilada sauce
2.5 oz reduced fat cheese
10 oz salsa chicken
5 T reduced fat sour cream
4T onion, chopped
2T reduced fat sour cream
Directions: Pre-heat oven to 375°. In a small 8×8 pan cover the bottom with a small layer of sauce. In a bowl mix chicken, 1.5 oz of cheese and the sour cream in a bowl. Add some enchilada sauce to a shallow bowl.
Heat tortillas in microwave for 30-45 seconds. This will make them easier to work with. Take tortilla and dip in sauce on both sides. Add chicken mixture to middle to tortilla and roll. Add to pan with seam side down. Continue with remaining tortillas.
Once completed pour remaining sauce over the enchiladas and top with the last 1 oz of cheese. Bake in oven for 30-40 minutes till bubbling and edges are slightly crispy! Serve with 1 table-spoon chopped onion and half tablespoon of sour cream. Enjoy!
Note: I use as little cheese as possible to try and keep this healthier. If you want to add more cheese feel free. Additional topping ideas would be cilantro, avocado, jalapeños etc. Also, I use weights for the ingredients because I made this be as healthy as possible. So I wanted to make sure it was the most accurate.

looks good – but I disagree with the lowfat cheese – but if that works for your goals – I get it… 🙂
I disagree too!! Trust me. But need to loose weight! Lol
well just keep in mind that “fat does not make you fat”
and I know we all have different things going on in our body – but I have learned so much the last few years (check out marks daily apple – it might not be your thing, but it steered me in a fresh – and helpful direction).
oh – and I would maybe replace the sour cream (that is on my no list) would replace it with plain full fat greek yogurt –
and I forgot to add that your photos are great = really great and wish I could taste this 🙂
You are so right. They say that low fat isn’t always good. And for sure. Greek yogurt I should try. I just started liking greek yogurt so baby steps!! Thanks for the information!
yes – baby steps for me too – 🙂
and thanks for letting me share – you are so nice
