Now this is the hearty, satisfying Paleo-friendly Mexican meal you’ve been waiting for.

You love enchiladas. We all do. But you’re eating Paleo and there’s that pesky tortilla. How can you have enchiladas without it?! Here’s the answer: caulitillas! Never heard of a caulitilla? It’s a cauliflower tortilla! Once you have the caulitillas made, the rest is simple – just like your average enchiladas.
Want the flavors of Mexico but you’re keeping Paleo and can’t work around the rice and beans and tortillas and cheese? Try this great, versatile dish: all the flavors, packed into a bright red bell pepper. Cauliflower rice lets you enjoy “rice” without having to actually eat rice! And if you need a little sour cream, top it all off with full-fat plain Greek yogurt.
Creamy AND Paleo?! How’s that? Well, the key here is that instead of cheese and sour cream, these enchiladas use a creamy cashew “sour cream.” Sure, it’s an extra step, but for the sake of all those great Mexican flavors you’ve been craving, it’s worth it!
