Beef Enchilada Casserole – Low Carb Keto Mexican Recipe

Beef Enchilada Casserole – Low Carb Keto Mexican Recipe


Welcome all! Papa G here. Today I present a
beef enchilada casserole. This easy, 8 serving recipe brings all the flavors of
Mexico into one low carbohydrate package and is perfect for meal prep Sunday’s The flavor
also reminds me a little of the old Taco Bell beef Enchirito recipe. Let’s
get started. We’ll begin by putting together our Mexican spice blend. To a
small bowl, add 1 tablespoon of chili powder; some cumin; paprika; some salt; a
little garlic powder; onion powder; dried oregano; ground black pepper; and just a
touch of cayenne pepper. Give a mix to blend and set aside. For our beef mixture
we’ll use two pounds of 80/20 ground beef; about 1/2 a cup of pickled
jalapenos; some sliced black olives; 3 stalks of green onions; and our Mexican
spice blend. Roughly chop the onions, peppers and olives. Separate the whites
and the Greens of the onion. We’ll be using the green tops later on. Add the
ground beef to a skillet on medium-high heat. Break up the beef into small pieces.
Add the spice blend and cook until the meat is browned. Drain the excess fat and
return the beef to the skillet. Add the onion whites, jalapenos and the chopped
black olives. Stir to cook for about a minute or two
more. Add 1/2 a cup of my enchilada sauce and stir to combine. Turn the heat off
and set aside. Now I’m still working on my low carbohydrate tortilla recipe, so in the
mean time, we’ll be using my favorite low carbohydrate tortilla as a replacement. Feel free
to use your own. Just be sure that they’re low carbohydrate and are about eight
inches in diameter. Stack five tortillas on a cutting
surface and cut into quarters. Add the meat mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add
one cup of sour cream; a quarter cup or one ounce of Mexican blend cheese; a
tablespoon of dried chives; and a tablespoon of freshly chopped cilantro.
Add a quarter cup of my enchilada sauce. Mix well to combine. Using a 9 by 13 inch
baking dish, spray just a little bit of oil to the bottom. place the quartered
tortillas on the bottom of the dish so that the entire bottom is covered. Pour
about 1/2 a cup of my enchilada sauce over the tortillas and add about a
quarter cup of cheese. Add the meat mixture and spread evenly. Spread a
quarter cup of cheese over the top of the meat. Place the remaining tortillas
on top, similar to what we did on the bottom. Pour one cup of my enchilada
sauce on top of the tortillas. Add the remaining cheese to the top of the
casserole. Scatter some sliced black olives over the top. Cover with some
aluminum foil and place in a preheated 350°F oven for 20 minutes. Remove
from the oven; uncover and bake an additional 5 to 7 minutes. Remove and let
cool for five to 10 minutes to set and add some green onions to the top. After
its cooled, run a knife around the sides and pre-cut into 8 equal servings. Serve
warm; drizzle on a little extra enchilada sauce; a little extra sour cream; a few
more green onions and enjoy all the flavors of Mexico
wrapped up into one low carbohydrate casserole. There you have it folks! My low carbohydrate beef

  1. This looks fantastic. Thank you for sharing. I'm going to figure out how to make Spanish cauliflower rice to go with this.

  2. Yes! I make a pretty similar low carb enchilada but have never thought to add sour cream to the meat mixture and of course I didn’t have your magic enchilada sauce! Can’t wait to give your version a try! Sunday meal prep here I come! Thanks for sharing Papa G!

  3. I am so happy you did this dish !!!!!!!!
    One favorite you feel you can't have.
    Looks tasty!!! thanks Jennifer I 😃

  4. This looks great but the tortillas look like they are $2-3 each on Amazon. Can that be? That would put a damper on my enthusiasm for sure.

  5. Looks great! Thank you.
    Question for you: By adding the spices to the meat as it's being cooked, do you find some of the seasoning ends up being strained out with the fat?

  6. WELCOME BACK Papa G! How was your daughter's wedding? I hope it was wonderful! 🙂 This looks totally divine and I'm wondering if you have ever substituted chicken for the ground beef?

  10. Mama Lupe's are my fave brand of tortillas…..I can have one whole tortilla that does not knock me out of ketosis…..they do not taste like low carb at all!

  11. This looks amazing! Will have to put it on my meal plan.😋
    I have a request, if it’s not too much trouble. Could you list total carbs in future videos for those of us keeping track of total carbs? Thanks for all your hard work. Your recipes are great, and I love your presentation.
