Red Cheese Enchiladas

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 3 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 3 cups Fiesta Blend Cheese
  • 8 Ole Xtreme Wellness High Fiber Low Carb Tortilla Wraps

Instructions:

Grease a 11×7 pan and set aside, preheat oven to 350. In small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together oil and spices. Whisk in chicken broth. After no spice lumps remain, heat the sauce for fifteen minutes. Whisk in xanthan gum. Let sauce cool slightly before proceeding to the next step to prevent burning your hands during the rolling process. To make each enchilada, dip tortilla in sauce and lay in prepared pan. Add 1/4 cup cheese to the center of middle of the tortilla. Roll and push to the edge of the pan. Repeat with remaining 7 tortillas. Pour remaining sauce over the enchiladas and top with remaining cheese. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. If desired top, with shredded lettuce and sour cream (not included in nutrition estimate).
