Keto Breakfast Diet

We’ve been posting quite a few enchilada recipes lately, and what can I say, it’s just one of my favorite dishes to eat. This style replaces the tortillas with eggs, and the meat with sausage, creating a great breakfast option. Everything is topped with enchilada sauce and cheddar cheese.

 

Don’t forget to check the labels for the enchilada sauce when you’re at the store. Mostly will only have a few carbs, but there are some brands that have added sugars or thickeners. You can also make your own at home with a little effort. Just soak some dried California chiles in chicken stock, then blend up with some garlic and salt.
