Honey Lime Mexicano...filling is great for quesadillas too

Honey Lime Enchiladas
  • 5 T. honey
  • 3 T. lime juice
  • 2 t. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2-3 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 4-6 flour tortillas
  • colby or monterey jack cheese, shredded (I always use cheddar)
  • 10 oz. can green enchilada sauce (I like Green Salsa Verde)
  • 1/4 c. whipping cream (optional)

  1. Mix first 4 ingredients together and toss with shredded chicken. Let it "marinate" for at least a half hour.
  2. Pour some green enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
  3. Fill flour tortillas with chicken and shredded cheese.
  4. Pour the rest of the can of green enchilada sauce mixed with the cream over enchiladas then sprinkle with more cheese.
  5. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
I like the taste of these enchiladas. They are different. They combine two good Bajio flavors: honey and lime. Sweet and a bit spicy, just what I like. If you don't use this chicken combo in tortillas, I think it would be fun with black beans, rice, and tortilla chips. Russell still isn't feeling the enchilada fire so we probably will do that next time.

**I used the filling (chicken, lime juice, honey, corn, black beans, cheese) as a filling for quesadillas and they were delicious!!)
