The Surprisingly Delicious Chicken Enchilada from Nutrisystem

Posted on January 14, 2018 in Dinner

You love chicken enchilada, don’t you? I’m not surprised; I’m a huge fan of this Spanish meal as well. And Nutrisystem has found a way to prepare this meal so that your health does not suffer as you enjoy its bursting selection of flavors.

What Is It?


Like any other other dish of chicken enchilada, this meal from Nutrisystem is rich in protein, thanks to white chicken meat. It also comes with brown rice and Tex-Mex that is friendly to dieters. Among health meal categories, this dish is a high protein delicacy. It is also frozen, and safe for diabetics.

What It Looks Like

I loved how the meal looked – it looks delicious and sumptuous. Like the Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast, it’s certainly something I would want to dig my teeth into. The creamy corn tortilla is filled with enticing white chicken, and covered in melted cheddar cheese.

Main Ingredients

The main ingredients in this meal are white chicken meat, which is one of the healthiest versions of animal proteins you can have. They also used brown rice, which is better for its greater fiber content.

The corn tortilla has also been prepared with a focus on reducing the use of any dangerous additives to make it much healthier, which I liked. The Tex-Mex is also the healthy kind, but still delicious.

Nutritional Facts

A single serving of this meal has 260 calories of energy, which is quite low and good for someone in need of a low-calorie diet as they lose weight. There are 13 grams of protein in the meal, which made it quite satisfying and beneficial to my fitness efforts. Unlike some typical versions of chicken enchilada, this Nutrisystem alternative had no trans fats, which are incredibly bad for the cardiac system.


There is no question about it – this healthy Nutrisystem remake of the popular dish is quite delicious. My taste buds were excited by the tantalizing flavors in the meal.

The rice is also quite good, Nutrisystem certainly deserves a kudos for choosing to go with brown rice prepared in Spanish style.


The chicken meat was a little on the low side; a little more wouldn’t hurt.

Generally speaking, most people are happy with this meal. The bursting flavors are the meal’s highlight for many. And they certainly help lovers of chicken enchilada enjoy this common delicacy in a healthy way. As a matter of fact, a number of people regretted that they only ordered one meal – it’s that good.

That said, a couple of people think that Nutrisystem could do a better job of making sure the delivered meal is not all jumbled up into one delicious mess. Also, a few people had gripes with the meal not having enough chicken – I did too.

Why I Like the Meal

The meal is delicious, and wholesome. It certainly reinforces my belief that diet meals do not have to taste drab. I also liked how all the ingredients come together perfectly. Nutrisystem gets full points from me for making sure every thing in the meal is delicious. That is also stands up to the standards of a regular dish of chicken enchilada with regard to taste, texture and appearance was a huge plus for me.
