low calorie enchilada recipe

Dear Diary,

“Mother” is the necessity of invention… and I find one place where that’s so true – the kitchen. Last weekend, we hosted a bachelorette party for 7 amazing ladies. We were originally going to stay in a hotel, but we really wanted it to be a warm, personal and an inexpensive trip. So, we decided to go back to the drawing board and look for a house to rent. We found this beautiful Spanish Villa – it had four bedrooms, an amazing dining room and most importantly, a well-equipped kitchen.

Growing up, my mom would always have her girlfriends over and cook these gourmet meals for her friends; bottles of wine flowed like water. I just remember a lot of crackling’ old ladies, but as I’ve gotten older (dare I say I’m now in the 25- 35 bracket) I’ve come to appreciate my mothers’ warmth and hospitality. It was Mother’s Day weekend, so a hotel stay just didn’t seem to have the personal touches I was taught growing up.

So, we have this beautiful Spanish Villa, 7 girls, lots of alcohol and let’s be real a budget…now what?! We were originally thinking pasta, because it’s simple, fast and would allow us to drink more; but I called Valorie on the eleventh hour and suggested these low calorie enchiladas. They are inexpensive, easy to make and fail proof! Also, DAMN TASTY! At the end of this dinner party there was no leftovers and the whole meal only  cost about $35.00 to make, but only because I tripled the recipe. It’s usually around $12.

The best part, if you use LaTortilla Factory Low- Carb tortillas, its around 250-285 calories per serving (2 enchiladas)! And, it’s meal you can make ahead of time and  throw in the oven when your guests come over. So all you have to focus on is pouring the wine. Cheers.
