Low Carb Eggplant Enchilada Casserole

I created this low carb enchilada casserole last night because my husband and I both LOVE Mexican Food and we're trying to stay on Atkins. We used homemade enchilada sauce. Next time I'll try it with chicken. We both loved it.

    We are eggplant lovers so I was quite surprised to find the combination of eggplant and enchilada sauce - but it works! This dish was really tasty and filling. Will definitely make this dish again. Made for Spring PAC, May, 2014.

    I have never eaten eggplant but was looking to add to my low-carb recipes. I made this yesterday and it looked a little runny but reheated very well and is delicious!

    It sounds odd, but the use of eggplant in this recipe is genious! It was a delight! We are low carb dieting, so this was a great find! I prepared the recipe as directed and casserole turned out great. We served with some lettuce and sour cream. My DH was skeptical, but he had seconds and fought for the leftovers a few nights later. I wasn't sure if you were supposed to slice the eggplant or cube, I ended up cubing and roasting. Turned out great! Will be making again and again! Thanks for the great recipe Batman's Chef!! Would love to see more low carb recipe creations from you :)

    This recipe is fabulous! I prepared it as written. There is a bit of prep and cooking time, but it is so worth it.
