Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

This is seriously yummy! It is from The Sisters Cafe, one of my favorite stops for awesome recipes! It is sweet and cheesy and crunchy and gooey. And super easy to make. I made it for a family I tutor and should have made double! My husband isn't a big fan of Mexican anything, but I can get away with these. Enjoy!

6 Tb honey
4.5 Tb lime juice
1 Tb chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 lb cooked chicken, shredded
flour tortillas
colby or monterey jack cheese, shredded
10 oz. can green enchilada sauce

Mix first 4 ingredients together and toss with shredded chicken. Let it “marinate” for at least a half hour. Pour some green enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 10×10 casserole dish or 9×13 pan. Fill flour tortillas with chicken and shredded cheese. Pour the rest of the can of green enchilada sauce over enchiladas then sprinkle with more cheese. (When using a 9×13 I like to use 1 1/2 10 oz. cans) Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. (Put it under the broiler at the end to make the cheese brown and crispy on the top.)

This looks SO good! I LOVE Mexican food! I was looking through my comments on my blog and realized I never replied to your comment about my coffee filter wreath. I try to respond to everyone. Anyway, I dried the filters in the oven and I have a double oven, so I could do several at a time. Still a little time consuming, but now I've got lots of friends wanting to buy them! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
