Good Eats… Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

The END ALL of enchiladas… I assure you of that. A crowd favorite that’s easy to execute, delicious for the entire family, and my go-to dish for when I’m dropping off food to friends and family. If there is one recipe from my lineup you add into your meal plans, let this be it!

For a side dish, I’ll pair it with this Trader Joe’s Mexican Style Roasted Corn and/or this Sesame Crunch Salad Kit.
