WOW! These babies are absolutely DELICIOUS! Plus they are so easy to whip together and smell so good baking in the oven. It does have a little kick (thanks to the chili powder), so if you are a "heat baby", you may want to reduce the amount of powder to your liking. I made them last night with sides of bean dip/chips, and Spanish rice. Lets just say we were all full after devouring this meal and will definitely be making these quite often! You can search for different variations of this recipe like I did, but in my opinion, these made the best!
1 lb cooked, shredded chicken
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup lime juice (fresh if possible)
1 Tb chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder (or 2 cloves minced garlic)
20 oz can green enchilada sauce
shredded cheese (half and half of mozzarella/cheddar, or Monterrey jack, whatever you have on hand)
flour tortillas (I used 16 and it made two pans)
fresh cilantro (optional)
Mix sauce ingredients in bowl and add the chicken. Toss chicken in sauce and cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator to marinate for 30 minutes.
Lightly spray a large baking dish (or 9 by 13 and 8 by 8, like I did) and pour some green enchilada sauce to just cover the bottoms. Fill tortillas with desired amount of meat mixture and cheese. Roll up and place seam down in dish.
Pour remainder of sauce over all the enchiladas and sprinkle with more cheese.
Baked UNCOVERED at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until bubbly and cheese is melted. If desired, broil a couple minutes longer to make cheese crisp and brown. Top with cilantro if wanted. Enjoy!
