Honey-Lime Chicken Enchiladas

For those of you who may or may not know, my new found passion is searching food blogs. I love to read cookbooks and so what do I find myself doing now more than anything? That's right, I'm finding lots and lots of yummy recipes on great blogs. I came across this one on The Sisters Cafe, the link is to the right if you want to check it out, and it was a little different and really tasty!

Honey-Lime Chicken Enchiladas

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.)

This is so funny, Cari! I found this exact recipe and tried it this week as well. David, Erin, and I loved it, but Brian and Kelly didn't like having their standard favorite of sour cream enchiladas challenged.
