Honey Lime Enchiladas

My good friend just sent me this recipe and my whole family loved them!  It puts a fun new twist on the regular old enchilada with the hint of honey!  They are sweet, yet bold and spicy with the chili powder in them.  This is definitely a family pleaser.  Especially when you use the Costco rotisserie chicken inside!  I just recently discovered that you can buy it already off the chicken if you ask them behind the counter.  Great find!!

Honey Lime Enchiladas

1.5 lbs pork or chicken, cooked and shredded

1/3 c honey
1/4 c lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 Tb chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 (10 oz) cans green enchilada sauce

Equal parts mixed together of:
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Cheddar cheese, shredded

Wheat tortillas, about 12

Lightly spray 2 pans with non-stick baking spray. Fill tortillas with shredded meat and desired amount of cheese. Roll and place in dish.

Pour sauce over enchiladas and sprinkle more cheese on top.  If desired, sprinkle with chopped jalapeno's.   Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Then turn on broiler and place enchiladas nearer the top of oven. Let it broil until cheese is slightly brown and crispy.


  1. I am always looking for a new Mexican dish since it seems to be my kid's favorite. I can't wait to try this.

    1. This is NOT mexican food. This is a variation of a traditional mexican dish.
      I would call this new america ethnic dish. =D

  2. Made this tonight & it was so good! My kids loved it too. I even made brownies with coconut oil in them- WOW, look at what you have taught me. Thanks!! :)

  3. Thank you so much for this recipe, Foodie Girl! (Can I ask what your real name is?)
    We made these for dinner and my whole family LOVED them!!! I am saving this recipe for sure. I usually use the tortillas from Costco but I bought the whole wheat ones and used them instead. Soooo good! What a winner of a dinner!
