A KETO Recipe - Pollo Verde Unwrapped
Recipe type: Keto/Low Carb Diet
Cuisine: Chicken/Latin
Serves: 8
Pollo Verde Unwrapped is my Keto version of Enchiladas, but without the extra carbs and spending the extra time in the kitchen rolling corn tortillas. The flavor is everything you need in this easy dish without the extra carbs, so give it a try and tell us what you think. I had my dish over mashed cauliflower, while my children opt for the traditional sides - LOL!!!

I am an Austinite, from Austin, TX where our slogan is to ‘Keep Austin Weird’ and blogging is my way. Where ‘trashy’ is not only a taco style at a local restaurant, but ‘down and dirty’ is my style in the kitchen creating delectable and sinful food porn to help my readers find their inner foodie through recipes. I also have a passion for reading romance novels; so writing reviews is how I give back to the author community I dearly respect, by shedding light on the details, and providing a different perspective other than the synopsis. Although cooking, reading romance novels, or quoting something for the day may by passions, but my LOVE is for my family & friends whom aide me in this journey to inspire people to find the beauty and love to try something new.
