Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°. Spread one cup of green enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
  • For each of the 12 corn tortillas spread ¼ cup of shredded honey lime chicken down the center. Then top with 2 tbsp of cheese and 1 tbsp of enchilada sauce. Roll each one tightly and place in the pan.
  • Take remaining enchilada sauce and spread it evenly over the top, then follow with the rest of the remaining cheese. Spray a piece of foil lightly with non-stick spray and cover lightly. Bake at 450° for 15-20 minutes until thoroughly hot.

Notes

Tips & Tricks
  • Shred your own cheese to ensure the cheese melts perfectly.
  • To mix things up use jarred salsa verde instead of traditional canned enchilada sauce.
  • Don’t skip the using honey lime chicken. It’s perfectly sweet with a touch of heat to really knock the flavor up on these enchiladas. 
  • Spray the tinfoil with non-stick cooking spray before covering the pan for the oven so the cheese doesn’t stick.
Make Ahead
Prep each component up to a couple days ahead, but assemble just before baking.
