This quick and easy, healthy chicken enchilada recipe is gluten free, and low carb, thanks to a secret ingredient: egg white “tortillas!”
You know what’s the worst?
When you are SUPER pumped to go out somewhere new to eat….and then you are TOTALLY let down.
This happened to me the other day, and I’m still depressed about it.
We’ve talked about how I am a little bit obsessed with gluten free Pancakes, specifically the Blueberry Harvest Grain and Nut from IHOP. I’ve told you before that you MUST eat them. But, I am telling you again.
Anyway, Mr. FFF was all “we should try somewhere new.”
At first, I resisted. I don’t like change. How-ev-er, we had JUST gone to IHOP 2 days before, so I figured it would be the best time to try somewhere new, since I had just gotten my IHOP fix.
We went to this cute little breakfast joint, and I had this egg white power wrap thingy, because it was on the “healthy menu.”
Two lessons from my experience:
- I should not order healthy breakfast items (unless it’s the IHOP pancakes – yep they’re actually pretty good for you!) because, let’s be honest, the carrot cake pancakes with ALL THE BUTTER AND SYRUP would have been way better than egg whites and mushroom on a tortilla.
- I will never abandon IHOP again. <3
It’s to make these Egg White healthy chicken Enchiladas.
Yes, enchiladas just got breakfasted up.
Yes, it’s awesome.
Didja guys know that you could make “tortillas” out of egg whites? Me either! Until one day I decided to not scramble my morning egg whites, and just let ‘em bake away.
Magic? It happened in my frying pan.
VOILA. A protein to the MAX tortilla was born. AND it was tuff enuff (spell check is yelling at me) to withstand the weight of the Mexi-yum that I packed inside it. I mean, you can even make healthy BBQ chicken quesadillas with them!
Oh, and I covered them in cheese and made it melt real good ….ya know, for good measure.
So there are two things you should do:
- Go to IHOP RIGHT NOW.
- Make egg white enchiladas. Maybe for dinner? Then you can have a whole day of EPIC FOOD.
Good ideas. This post is full of them.
