With the start of the new year, many of us make resolutions. One of the most frequent being, new year, new you. Resolving to eat better, to exercise, get more rest. All such healthy, wonderful resolutions so today I’m here to help you stay on track.

I’m a total fiend for Mexican food. Tacos, burritos, chimichangas, enchiladas … I want it all! The cheesier, spicier, meatier, the better. Bring it on. But most of the time Mexican tends to be pretty darn unhealthy. Deep fried tortillas, mountains of shredded cheese, these are a few of my favorite things but not conducive to staying fit and healthy.

So of course, when I’m not splurging I make Mexican food a little healthier at home. These Healthy Chicken Enchiladas with Chunky Enchilada sauce are amazing. Spicy, high protein, dairy free, refined sugar free and all nestled in a sprouted grain tortilla that packs a whole grain punch.

Shredded chicken is mixed with green chiles, cumin and a touch of lime juice then rolled in whole grain tortillas topped with a chunky, flavorful enchilada sauce. Bake in the oven and a health, high protein dinner is on the table in no time.
