Enchilada Sauce:

  • 3 T. chili powder
  • 1 T. cumin
  • ¼ t. garlic powder
  • ¼ t. paprika
  • ¾ t. salt
  • ¼ t. pepper
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 3 T. tapioca starch
  • 2 1/3 c. chicken broth


  • 12-14 corn tortillas
  • ¼ c. coconut oil
  • 1 rotisserie chicken meat removed and chicken shredded
  • 1/3 c. salsa medium or mild
  • 1-8 oz. package shredded cheese of choice Cheddar, Monterrey Jack, etc.


  • Green onions
  • Sour cream


For the Homemade Enchilada Sauce:

  1. In a small bowl combine chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine olive oil and tapioca starch. Whisk for 1 minute over medium-low heat.
  3. Add in ½ c. chicken broth and whisk to combine. Add seasoning ingredients. Slowly add in remaining chicken broth, over the course of 5 minutes, while keeping saucepan over a medium-low heat.
  4. Let sauce simmer for 12-15 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally.

For the Enchiladas:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place 1 T. coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Heat up 3-4 tortillas at a time in the oil. (This helps make the tortillas softer and easier to roll up.) Repeat with remaining oil and tortillas.
  3. Fill each tortilla with 2-3 T. chicken, 1 T. cheese, and ½ T. salsa. Roll up and place seam-side down in a large baking dish coated with non-stick cooking spray. Depending on the size of your dish, you may need two dishes to fit all of the enchiladas.
  4. Cover enchiladas with enchilada sauce. Top with remaining shredded cheese and bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes in the preheated oven.
  5. Serve with green onions and sour cream. Enjoy!
