What is Queso Blanco?

In Spanish, “queso blanco” means white cheese, and can refer to a number of different cheese products that fit the description.

Either Queso Fresco or Cotija cheese are Mexican cheese options that will add a pop of flavor that you’d expect from a traditional enchilada recipe. However, feel free to substitute with another type of white cheese that is more readily available or preferred.

Is Enchilada Sauce Keto?

By itself, many store-bought enchilada sauces might not appear to be keto-friendly. However, if you check labels you can find some brands that are relatively low in carbs. Spread out over this entire recipe, it makes an even smaller impact on overall carb intake. 

In the ingredients list above, I linked to a keto enchilada sauce. Though for our nutrition information calculations, I used a common store brand that most people will find at their local grocer. Using a keto enchilada sauce may lower the carb count for this Instant Pot Chicken Enchilada recipe even more.
