Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

As promised, this is the recipe for the delicious Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas. It is definitely one of our favorite meals around the Sadlow household, and it combines amazing flavors like the sweetness of the honey, the sourness of the lime, and then the spiciness of chili powder and enchilada sauce. And it is divine.

Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas
(recipe and picture found here)

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 10x10 casserole dish or 9x13 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 9x13 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.)
