Keto Zone Zucchini Enchilada Rolls

When you’re on a ketogenic diet most tex-mex food is off the menu.

Unfortunately, typical tex-mex food is made with high carb grains like wheat, rice, and corn as well as inflammatory oils like vegetable, canola, and corn oil.

But this doesn’t mean you can’t make keto friendly versions of your favorite tex-mex classics like enchiladas!

This keto enchilada roll recipe utilizes zucchini in place of tortillas so you don’t spike your blood sugar and pack on the pounds.

Use your favorite low-carb pre-made enchilada sauce or make your own!
