Honey Lime Enchiladas

I can't remember where this recipe came from, it's not new to us, but it is very good! This time I made it with homemade enchilada sauce.

Honey Lime Enchiladas
1 lb chicken, cooked, shredded
1-2 limes, zested and juiced
6 tbsp honey
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
8-10 flour tortillas
1 lb chedder cheese, shredded
1 1/2 cups enchilada sauce
1 1/4 cup cream(omitted)

Place chicken, honey, lime juice/zest, and spices in a bowl. Let marinate for at least a half hour.

Spread about a 1/2 cup of sauce on the bottom of 9x13 casserole dish. Lay 1-2 tortillas down on plate(or counter). Scoop 2 tbsp of chicken mixture down center, dribble with sauce, top with cheese, and roll. Place seem side down in casserole dish until all filling/tortillas are used. Cover enchiladas with more sauce and top with cheese. Place in 350 degree oven for 20 mins until heated through and bubbly.

**I know these will be delicious! I love the combo of lime and honey....and I also know these will be very spicey! The sauce is spicy, so I know A &Q won't be partaking in this dinner tonight!
