Honey Lime Enchiladas

Today I am starting a 4 week promotion from Crystal Light. Go to my Crystal Light Homepage to find out about a $100 and $1000 dollar Visa Card giveaway!

OK.....This has been on my "to try" list forever, and I finally made it today. What a treat! If you haven't already, put this on your "to make" list too. But don't wait as long as me to actually make them! I found his recipe at My Kitchen Cafe. The only change I made was that I used corn tortillas instead of flour. Soooooo good! Oh and by the way...that is cilantro from our garden! :)

Honey Lime Enchiladas

from Brittany at The Sisters’ Cafe

6 tablespoons honey
5 tablespoons lime juice (1 large lime)
1 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 pound chicken, cooked and shredded (I used 3 small chicken breasts)
8-10 flour tortillas
1 pound monterey jack cheese, shredded
16 ounces green enchilada sauce
1 cup heavy cream

Mix the first four ingredients and toss with shredded chicken. Let it marinate for at least 1/2 hour. Pour about 1/2 cup enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9X13 baking pan. Fill flour tortillas with chicken and shredded cheese, saving about 1 cup of cheese to sprinkle on top of enchiladas. Mix the remaining enchilada sauce with the cream and leftover marinade. Pour sauce on top of the enchiladas and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until brown and crispy on top.

*Freezable Meal: Freeze prior to baking. To bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake enchiladas, covered (without thawing first) for 1 hour. Uncover and bake 30 minutes longer, until brown and crispy on top.
