Keto Enchilada Sauce

Patricia Reitz

ButterYum - how to make homemade enchilada sauce that is low carb and Keto-friendly.

Whether you’re watching your carb intake or not, this easy keto-friendly enchilada sauce is packed full of bold flavor. Better than anything you can get in a can, you can make this enchilada sauce in about 10 minutes.


The ingredients needed: chili powder, sweet paprika, ground cumin, dried oregano, kosher salt, onion powder, garlic powder, chipotle powder (if you dare!), tomato paste, and a bay leaf.


Also needed, low or no-sodium chicken stock (try my recipe here). If you only have regular chicken stock, see my notes in the recipe below.


The process is simple, just combine everything together in a skillet and stir to combine.


Keep stirring - the entire process should take about 10 minutes.


Bring the mixture to a boil and stir occasionally until the mixture reduces down to about 1 1/2 cups (roughly half).


The color will darken as the mixture reduces.

When the mixture has reduced, remove the bay leaf.


The enchilada sauce is now ready to use.


I like to use this sauce to make keto chicken enchilada casserole. Enjoy!
