A quick and easy way to use leftover chicken or turkey, this Paleo Turkey Enchilada Casserole is dairy-free, grain-free, and Keto-friendly.

I originally developed this recipe with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. We loved it so much that it is now one of our favorite quick go-to meals. I love a meal I can prep and put together quickly, then have it cook in the oven while I’m doing something else. This enchilada dish is the perfect grain-free, low carb, Paleo comfort meal that can easily last our family two meals.

I have a delicious Paleo Enchilada Sauce recipe. I make my own because it is hard to find a healthy one in the grocery store. Feel free to use whatever enchilada sauce you prefer but do check your labels, and be careful to avoid added sugars and preservatives often found in store-bought enchilada sauces.

Did I mention that this Paleo Chicken Enchilada Casserole is low in carbs and high in healthy fats, making it a perfect Ketogenic meal for your family?
