Honey -Lime Enchiladas

I saw this recipe on Taste the Joy and I love it! The flavors are so good together! You will love it!It is one of those meals you can make in the morning, put in your fridge and pop in the oven right before dinner. Yummy comfort food to warm your belly!


6 tablespoon honey

5 tablespoons lime juice

1 tablespoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 lb. cooked, shredded chicken ( about 3 small chicken breasts)

8-10 wheat flour tortillas

1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (your favorite)

16 oz. green enchilada sauce

1 cup fat-free sour cream

1. Mix the first 4 ingredients together and toss with the shredded chicken. Let it marinate for at least 1/2 hour.

2. Pour about 1/2 cup enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 baking pan. Fill flour tortillas with marinated chicken and cheese. (reserve about 3/4 cup cheese for top)

3. After the tortillas are filled and placed in dish, mix the leftover marinade, remaining enchilada sauce, and sour cream together. Pour sauce over the top of enchiladas and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes and broil the last few minutes to make the cheese nice and golden brown. Pair these yummy enchiladas with a side of spicy black beans (add a little garlic, onion, and cumin powder to them) and a green salad, and there you have it! A nice healthy dinner!

* I put meals like this together in the morning when my kiddies are eating breakfast, saves time, something we all could use a little more of :)
