Chicken enchiladas with a sweet honey and lime goodness for a great dinner casserole
We had these delicious honey lime chicken enchiladas a while back and I can’t believe I haven’t shared the recipe with you guys yet!
Enchiladas are one of my favorite foods in the whole world. Along with pizza I could probably eat some sort of enchiladas everyday. In fact, any time we go home we have to go to one of my favorite restaurants ever, called Rosas and I order a double of their chicken enchiladas. So so so good.
Anyway, enchiladas are great because there are so many different types. On our blog we even have like 5+ different enchilada recipes. Creamy Chicken Enchiladas. Slow Cooker Pork Enchiladas. Red Sauce Chicken Enchiladas. Enchiladas Verdes. Shredded Beef Enchiladas. and here is a new one to add to the repertoire… Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas.
These enchiladas have a slight sweet, honey and lime taste that makes them different than any other enchiladas I’d had before. But they still taste great with the typical salsa, sourcream and whatever else you like on top.
