How to make Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas:
- In a resealable gallon-sized bag, mix together marinade ingredients (honey, lime juice, chili powder, and garlic powder). Add in cooked and shredded chicken (rotisserie chicken works great!).
- Let the chicken marinate for at least 30 minutes (I prefer 4-6 hours to get maximum flavor!).
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Fill each tortilla with a scoop of chicken and some shredded cheese; roll up and place in a pan.
- Mix enchilada sauce with heavy cream and pour over the top of the rolled tortillas.
- Sprinkle cheese on top and bake for 30 minutes.

Flour VS corn tortillas for enchiladas:
While most traditional enchilada recipes are made with corn tortillas, we prefer this recipe using white flour tortillas.
However, if you only have corn tortillas on hand, they will still work (and that is actually what we prefer if you are going to be freezing these – read below).
