TL;DR: Real Good Enchiladas are THE BOMB and make the perfect quick keto meal. You can get them right now and save 15% when you order at Real Good Foods and use the code KETOFAMILY
Can we all agree real quick that enchiladas are one of the greatest foods ever? I’m married to a Mexican, but the fact has never been lost on me. The gooey cheese, that soft tortilla, the perfectly tender meat and spiced sauces... everything about them just works.
We’ve made our share of keto enchiladas in the past (check this recipe out if you want to give them a go!). However, they take a fairly long time to prepare: Waiting for cheese “tortillas” alone is easy, but time-consuming. So when I discovered that Real Good Foods sells ready made KETO enchiladas, I knew I had to try them ASAP.
My husband was skeptical when I shared the news. Microwave enchiladas tend to turn out... sad. And despite the amazing leaps keto has made in making tasty low-carb versions of high-carb dishes, ready-made keto food is often just “keto good” instead of “legit good.”
I was not to be stopped, though! I headed to my friendly chain grocery store and picked up Real Good Enchiladas in two flavors.
What’s so special about Real Good Enchiladas?
If you’ve ever had Real Good Pizza, you’ll know that the folks over there have perfected the alchemy of turning chicken into bread-like things. While their pizza used a chicken-based crust, Real Good Enchiladas use chicken and cheese to make the TORTILLA. Then, in enchilada style, they stuff it with more meat and cheese, and smother it with spicy sauce.
Here’s the other special thing: The macros. Real Good Enchiladas are a shocking 2 net carbs for the whole stinkin’ tray. When was the last time you had a microwave meal for 2 net carbs?!
Don’t worry about finding the right flavor, either. You can get these enchies in beef or cheese (both with red sauce), or chicken or pork (both with green sauce). We picked up a beef and chicken version get to get a baseline idea of how these guys taste.
For the curious, these enchiladas also have 20 grams of protein, 190 calories, and 10 grams of fat per serving. Not bad for an on-the-go keto option. Plus, they’re made with antibiotic-free chicken!
Where can you buy Real Good Enchiladas, and how much are they?
I was shocked to find these enchiladas in quite a few places around my town, given that I live in a smaller city that doesn’t have a lot of natural or specialty food options. Using Real Good’s store locator, I found flavors at Safeway, Walmart, and The Vitamin Shoppe in my area. Lemme tell ya: Real Good Enchiladas + Walmart Grocery Pickup = Keto mom heaven.
For a low-carb and high-protein dish, the price was fair, too. At Walmart, I got each box for about the same cost as your standard drive-thru combo meal.

Real Good Enchiladas: First impressions
Between the price point and the macros, I was already prepared to enjoy these meals. But I will say, when I first opened the boxes, the portions seemed… small.
Not to worry, really. If you’re on keto, you’ll find that these enchiladas are surprisingly filling for their size. I wouldn’t recommend eating a tray all by itself without some kind of side dish anyway.
Removing the plastic from the trays surprised me the most. The enchiladas looked like pretty much any other high-carb version you’d find in the frozen section. Confidence restored!
The best (and worst) ways to cook Real Good Enchiladas
Like other frozen entrees, you can absolutely cook Real Good Enchiladas in the microwave. However, I went with the recommended cooking route and used my oven to get the perfect melty texture. It’s the longest cooking method at 20 minutes, but I had time to spare.
Fun fact: You can also use your air fryer to cook them! The Real Good site recommends 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, but some people even crank it up to 400 for 10 minutes with excellent (and crispy) results.
Serving tips for Real Good Enchiladas
You’re going to enjoy these enchiladas a lot more if you make a complete meal out of them. I’d recommend some sour cream, guacamole, fresh veggies, or my latest favorite keto side dish, jicama. It’s easy to prepare some sides if you go the oven route!
So, how do they taste?!
These enchiladas are one of the best frozen meals I’ve tasted, keto or otherwise. As a person who doesn’t enjoy flaming hot food, these had a nice level of spice to them and the meat was nice and tender.
Plus, the texture was on point. The chicken tortilla felt like a real tortilla when I cut and chewed it, and it had a similar texture to a tortilla after getting covered in sauce and cheese. When Jacob tried them, he literally said, “How did they do that?!”
What we didn’t like about these enchiladas
We couldn’t find too many bad qualities about Real Good Enchiladas, but they may not be for you if:
You’re looking for a low-protein meal. These entrees are very high in protein, so you’ll definitely want to watch your macros if you’re worried about overdoing your protein intake for the day.
You want grass-fed beef or pastured chicken. We like to have these options whenever possible, but the existing choices in the frozen food aisle don’t support those preferences yet. For now, we’re just happy to see an option that’s quick and keto, and at least uses antibiotic-free chicken.
Would we buy Real Good Enchiladas again?
Hands down, I’ll definitely pick these up again! I don’t eat microwave meals often, but when I do it is SO hard to find a good one that will stay in my macros. Real Good nailed these enchiladas, and I’m excited to try more flavors soon!
