Honey Lime Enchiladas

When we bought a 5 gallon jar of honey from a local farmer we knew it was time to step up the honey recipes outside of the normal uses. (Tea and biscuits weren't going to cut it helping this honey really be enjoyed).
Blessed Pinterest has way enhanced the culinary enthusiasm lately. Low and behold I found this awesome link here:

Here was our re-creation:

2 Large Chicken Breasts, boiled and chopped in bite sized pieces
Set in a bowl and set aside

Mix in another bowl:
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
 whisk together and pour over the chicken

While marinading, take out 10 corn tortilla shells and warm up in a skillet to soften.
Stuff with chicken mixture and sprinkle Mexican cheese on top and lay seam side down inside a baking pan.

When all are rolled and placed take out a new bowl.  Mix 1 can green enchilada sauce and 1/2 cup cream together.  Pour a little in the bottom of the pan first, then add to left over marinade and mix together.  Pour all over enchiladas and top with cheese.

Bake on 350 for 30 minutes.  You will NOT be disappointed!

  1. Oh what I wouldn't give for a five gallon jar of honey. You could always use it to make this totally amazing spicy peach bbq sauce that I recently tried. It's perfect on anything. It's also really good in sorbets instead of sugar.
