  • 3 pounds ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup salsa mild, medium, or hot
  • cup ground low carb lavash I used Josephs brand and run it through a food processor
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder more if you like heat
  • 2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 ½ teaspoon salt
  • enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-2 diced tomatoes
  • 1 diced avocado
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • Sour cream for serving


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Combine meat, eggs, salsa, lavash, and spices in a large bowl. Mix until blended. Using your hands works best.
  • Shape the meat into a loaf on a broiler pan.
  • Cover the top with enchilada sauce.
  • Bake for 55 minutes, remove from the oven and top with more enchilada sauce.
  • Bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and top with cheese, tomato, avocado, cilantro and sour cream.


Josephs is a brand that makes low carb lavash and pitas. You can use either in this recipe, just blend it in a food processor to fine crumbs. You could also use a gluten free flour or rolled oats instead. Grind the oats the same way.
Using a broiler pan works great because the fat will drip down and prevent the meat from being greasy.
You can use store bought enchilada sauce or homemade.
