Low Carb Enchiladas Casserole Recipe

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE LOVE Mexican food, however with diabetes all the tortillas add tons of carbs and my sugars skyrocket:( So, I’m always looking for ways to get the same flavors and make the recipe low carb, that’s how I came up with this low carb enchiladas casserole recipe, which is a perfect diabetic recipe for enchiladas.

The other factor in coming up with this low carb enchiladas recipe was how much zucchini I had in my garden… SO MUCH!!  & the zucchinis are huge!! So it was an easy decision to choose zucchini instead of the tortillas.

I sliced the zucchini super thin on my mandolin, which was a new purchase for me.  I’ve sliced the zucchini myself before for other recipes, but I wanted this one to be super thin, so I bought one.  I was always scared I’d slice a finger off, but I managed to keep all 10 digits.

If you are a super diligent cook, you could pre-cook the zucchini and dry it out to remove some of the water.  But, I’m 1 step Charlie over here, so I definitely just used the zucchini raw.

I started by cooking the ground turkey with some spices.  Usually I would add salsa, but instead I added taco seasoning to keep the ground turkey kind of dry since I knew the zucchini would add water to the dish and I didn’t want it to be super soupy.

After the meat was all cooked up, I added a layer of zucchini slices, meat, cheese & ricotta (sounds strange, I know), then started all over again.  Except I only added one layer of ricotta in total.  If you prefer cream cheese you could substitute that for the ricotta.  I have to say the ricotta worked really well at creating a little structure when I cut pieces so they stayed together in a little square shape.
