Enchilada Frittata


If you have followed my Whole30 Recipe takovers you probably are already aware of how much I love a good frittata. My number one saying is, “CLEAN YO HOUSE AND MAKE A FRITTATA.” I love setting goals and starting fresh on Mondays and Sunday is a great day to reflect and prepare. Having a yummy frittata baking in the oven while you clean your house is sure to set you up for a fabulous week.  

My new Chicken Enchilada Frittata not only rhymes but will change your meal prep life. This magnificent beauty serves as a great breakfast, lunch, and dinner that will save you during those busy weeks. I love setting goals and starting fresh on Mondays and Sunday is a great day to reflect and prepare. This frittata is absolutely mouth watering and will make you excited to wake up to heat it up and eat for breakfast. The Paleo and Whole30 enchilada sauce is out of this world amazing. It tastes so much better than the store bought version and is filled with clean ingredients. 

In addition to setting goals, I also love saving money and having a “tight” food budget. At our house we usually make a big frittata a couple of times a week. My whole family will eat them for dinner instead of cooking an expensive cut of meat. Frittatas are also a great meal to whip up when you are trying to use veggies or eggs about to expire. Make sure to always assess what you have and try to create something that is not only delicious but that will also save you some cash.

Enchilada Frittata

A savory and easy Chicken Enchaldia Frittata that makes meal prep a piece of cake. Filled with Mexican flavor that is Whole30, Keto and Pale compliant.




  • 12 large eggs
  • 3 cups diced cooked chicken breasts
  • 1 can Rotel
  • 11/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/3 cup yellow onion (chopped finely)
  • 2 garlic cloves (pressed or chopped finely)
  • 3 tbsp canned coconut milk
  • green onions for garnish

Enchilada Sauce

  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 1 can of tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp tapioca flour (dissolved in 2 ½ tbsp water)
  • 1/4 ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper



  1. Heat cast iron over medium heat with 1 tbsp ghee.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F
  3. Add the pressed garlic along with chopped yellow onion to the skillet. Brown together for a min or two.
  4. Add in the diced chicken, canned rotel and seasonings, (1 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper)
  5. While this is coming together, whisk the 12 eggs along with the 3 tbsp of coconut milk until completely combined.
  6. Once everything in the cast iron skillet is combined and has been heated, whisk in the eggs on top of everything in the pan. Make sure the egg mixture is spread evenly over the chicken in the skillet for even cooking.
  7. Add the cast iron skillet to the oven and allow to cook 25 minutes.
  8. While the frittata is cooking, heat a small saucepan over medium heat for the enchilada sauce.

Enchilada Sauce

  1. Add in the tomato sauce along with all other ingredients except for the tapioca flour.
  2. Once tomato sauce comes to a slow boil add in the tapioca flour and lower heat to low. As the tomato sauce continues to cook, the tapioca flour will allow it to thicken. Make sure the tapioca flour is completely dissolved. To help, I always dissolve my flour in 2 ½ tbsp of water before adding to the tomato sauce. This will allow it not to clump up and get gummy.
  3. Once thick, remove from heat.

Complete Frittata

  1. Remove Frittata and allow to cool.
  2. Add the enchilada sauce over the top along with fresh green onions.
  3. Slice and serve immediately. This will stay good for up to a week in the fridge for leftovers.
