These red & green enchiladas are inspired by the New Mexican tradition of combining red & green chile sauce into one dish. Can't decide between red or green? Just do Christmas style!

This recipe has two kinds of enchiladas - ground beef with red sauce & chicken with green sauce - and is made with Outer Aisle Pizza Crusts for a keto friendly twist. If you want to fully embrace Christmas style, you can use both sauces on all of the enchiladas and enjoy the flavor explosion.

These festive enchiladas are perfect for chilly nights around the holidays, and the variety of flavors are great for a gathering. There's something for everyone!
