Before I reveal this very creative Paleo enchiladas recipe, let me tell you a little about the recipe creator, Tara Rayburn.

I first met Tara, author of the cookbook Essential Gluten-Free Recipes, in yoga class about 10 years ago.  She was pregnant at the time and we struck up a conversation about Labor of Love, a local birthing center in Tampa that offers women a fantastic natural birth experience as well as holistic prenatal care (this is where I delivered all 3 of my children).

A natural opportunity to talk to Tara about traditional cooking and the travels and teachings of Dr. Weston A. Price presented itself when her child began to experience a challenge with food allergies.

One time, I brought some homemade broth to her house when a tummy bug was making the rounds.  Tara has been hooked on traditional cooking ever since witnessing firsthand the healing power of traditional bone broth, and in the ensuing years has become a successful speaker and writer known in alternative circles as the Healthy Habit Coach.

Tara is also the Weston A. Price Chapter Leader of Las Vegas, Nevada and was a featured speaker at a recent Wise Traditions Conference in Dallas.

I’ve been re-reading through Tara’s awesome new gluten-free cookbook in recent days (the pictures are amazing!) and found this wonderful recipe for Paleo enchiladas to share with you.

Paleo Enchiladas (grain free with dairy free option)

Yield:  2-4 Paleo enchiladas (depending on skillet size)


5 free range/pastured eggs
Ghee or coconut oil (where to find)
Grassfed ground beef or ground turkey
Chopped raw or cooked vegetables of choice
Fresh salsa
Grated raw cheese (where to find) or raw carrot (if dairy free)
Garlic, minced
Onions, chopped
Finely chopped greens
Dollop of fresh sour cream or coconut yogurt (if dairy free – where to find)


Saute garlic and onions in a bit of cooking fat until golden.  Add ground meat and brown.   Add chopped veggies of choice if desired.

To prepare the Paleo tortillas, heat a small skillet and add cooking fat.  In a bowl, beat the eggs well.  Pour a very thin layer of egg into the skillet and cover briefly.   In less than a minute, remove egg tortilla and place on a covered dish.  Repeat until all the egg is used up and you have 2-4 tortillas ready.

Wrap the ground meat mixture in the egg tortillas and top with chopped greens, cheese or shredded carrots, salsa, and a dollop of sour cream or coconut yogurt.

Voila!   Paleo enchiladas!

Serve your delicious creation of Paleo enchiladas and enjoy!
