Honey Lime Enchiladas

I make these honey lime enchiladas all of the time.  They are not quite your ordinary chicken enchiladas with cream sauce.  Nope, you marinate the chicken in a honey lime mixture before assembling and WOWZA! does it ever make a big difference!Honey Lime #Chicken #Enchiladas frugalanticsrecipes.comI got the original recipe from The Sisters Cafe site.  I have seen it on many others, but I think that is where it originally started.  With recipes, you never know, right!?

Honey Lime Enchiladas
  • Marinade:
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • ¼ cup lime juice

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Other ingredients:
  • 1 lb cooked chicken, shredded or minced

  1. Toss cooked chicken with marinade ingredients and let sit for 30 minutes in a glass pan.
  2. Pour ½ green salsa on the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
  3. Soften tortillas by heating them.
  4. Fill the tortillas with the chicken mixture and 1 cup of cheese.
  5. Lay them on the salsa in the pan.
