Why should you have to give up your favorite Latin foods while on the keto diet?! Singer and television personality Chiquis Rivera, author of CHIQUIS KETO, shares her recipe for a delicious Chicken Enchilada Bowl.

Back when we were living in Compton, California, my mom used to make me enchiladas whenever I craved them. So when I have this healthy and heartfelt dish, I immediately think of her and it makes my soul smile.
