  1. Just made this tonight…sooo yummy!!! A couple adjustments I made was I added some cream cheese and a handful of the shredded swiss to the cream sauce, I added some cumin, oregeno and smoked paprika to the chicken filling because I love seasonings! Tends to kick things up a notch! Then topped with tomatoes, sour cream and our favorite hot sauce. Thanks for sharing you have really helped make the low carb life flavorful! ❤

  2. Okay. Suizas (SUE <syllable c-yas <syllable)you are pronouncing incorrectly. Suizas means dirty in spanish. I think in this case dirty is positive and hints at being a very wet enchilada. I'm sorry I know this is not easy to say. Also, I love you for sharing this video, I love enchiladas!!! Ine of my favorite Mexican treats

  3. This is a variation of the Mexican Enchiladas Verdes, history goes that after the fall of Maximilian of Hapsburg, first and greatest (and also very handsome and wise) Emperor of Mexico, his entourage followed him into exile and his personal buttler’s family settled in Coahuila, he was in charge of supervising his food and how the Emperor liked to eat it, Maximilian loved México and liked to tweak things a little bit, so the buttler and his wife opened a small restaurant called “Café Imperial”, there he and his wife named a lot of the food served there with European themed names “Panque Imperial”, “Danish Concha” and “Enchiladas Suizas”. This is the first ever mention of the name of the dish in México and then Restaurant Brand Sanborns made it famous, by adding it to its menu across the country.

    The main variation against regular “enchiladas verdes” is adding either sour cream, cream cheese or any full fat cream to the green salsa base to make it silkier, my family adds also some roasted peanuts and sesame seeds to enhance the flavor, and topping with any sort of melting or grilling cheese (most popular cheese here is Manchego) then baking them just to melt the cheese.

  4. I second your comment about store bought tortillas. For a few years, I’ve been using Mission Low Carb Tortillas, like multiple times per week. I recently did a blood glucose test after eating one. Wow, it spiked like I couldn’t believe, I went from 105 to 180 in 90 min.

  5. Let me tell you something, Sanborn's enchiladas suizas as not as good as these ones. 💯 And regarding your question about where the hell did we got Swiss cheese, were, after WWII whole families of German, Swiss, and Italian people moved to Mexico, particularly to states with good weather, and settled with their business, there are a couple of states which manufacture diary products with traditional European techniques, and obviously they became pretty popular.

  6. I used to never use msg things I got a cheap boullion at Wal-Mart my son&husband Really liked my soup more than usual.This is REALLY good.Who doesnt love it when your family REALLY LOVES your food!So now msg bouillon is my secret ingredient.🙄I liked it too just as a bowl of broth to fill me up before food is ready.

  7. Actually its Suizas and yes Monteray or mozzarella can be substituted. It usually is made with a tomatillo sauce which is green and not red. I use mild green chiles mixed with the chicken. PS I also use corn tortillas which are the customary tortillas used in Mexico.

  8. Made these tonight. Easy & Excellent. Only change I made was that I followed Joe Duff’s tortilla recipe off his YouTube channel, as they were only 1.5 grams of carbs. Love, love, love your channel and how you compare recipes. Saves me so much time!
