Helpful hints

  • For added flavor top enchiladas with chopped onions or cilantro.
  • Commercially prepared salsa verde and flour tortillas may be substituted, but sodium will be higher. Look for the lowest sodium brands.
  • Most flour tortillas are high in sodium. Lower sodium brands include Tortilla Land® Fresh Ready-to-Cook Tortillas (210 mg sodium), La Banderita® Low Sodium Tortillas (85 mg sodium).
  • To add extra protein, prepare a large egg and serve over top, inside or on side of enchilada.
