Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

Friend Sarah raved about these on her blog so much that I had to try them. She said they're the best enchiladas she's ever had and that she made them three times in two weeks! I also thought these were very yummy. The combination of honey and lime was so delicious and a fun spin on my regular enchilada routine. These were so delicious! I would definitely make these again!

Honey Lime Enchiladas

1.5 lbs. chicken or pork, cooked and shredded
⅓ cup honey
¼ cup lime juice (about 2 limes)
1 Tbsp. chili powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 4 oz. can diced green chiles
2 10 oz. cans green enchilada sauce
Equal parts mozzarella & cheddar cheese, grated (monterey jack works fine)
8-10 flour tortillas

After chicken/pork is cooked and shredded, combine with green chiles, honey, lime juice, chili & garlic powder. Let "marinate" in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Grease a 9x13 pan and pour a little bit of the enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of the pan. Fill your tortillas with chicken mixture and a little cheese. Roll up and place seam side down in the pan. Repeat. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the top and sprinkle more cheese on top (don't be stingy). Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and then turn on the broiler for a couple minutes so it gets nice and brown. Serve with sour cream, diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce and salsa, if desired.

  8. I love these! They made it into my dinner cycle and my mouth waters every time I think of them. We love your recipe blog Angie and you have become famous among my friends and especially my sisters!

  9. Could you cook it all in the crock pot all day, then in the evening cook the meat mixture in the tortillas? I find my chicken to be so much more moist if I cook it in the crock pot. I am so excited to try these!!

  10. Yes, you can cook and shred the chicken any way you please! I'm sure the crock pot would be a fine way to cook it.
