I have been cooking a little here and there over the last 2-3 years but my recipe repertoire is fairly pathetic. Every week seems to include tacos, a spaghetti/ boring noodle dish, and something frozen. I'm excited to expand my culinary horizons and learn how to cook some mighty fine eats.
The first recipe I am going to post was so delicious and easy to make. The original recipe can be found here.
It is a tasty enchilada with a surprising sweet chili flavor.
P.S. If you have Chicken leftover after enjoying this yummy recipe, check out this idea for a quick and easy yummy meal.
|Take 1 Tbsp Chili Powder, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1/3 C Honey, and 1/4 cup Lime Juice|
|Mix together in a Large mixing Bowl|
|Add chicken (or pork) and mix well. Let marinate in Fridge at least 30 minutes.|
|Add Meat, Cheese, and a bit of Enchilada sauce to keep moist|
|Then roll into a nice & cute burrito roll.|
|You will want to spray your pan w/ non-stick spray and lightly cover the bottom of the pan with Enchilada sauce. Then place your yummy rolls on top of the sauce. I got six good sized enchiladas in my pan.|
|After it is done baking you can stick it under the broiler for a quick moment to get the cheese really bubbly and yummy. I left mine under the broiler for 1 1/2 minutes and it started to burn a little. Be careful!|
|Enjoy!! I topped mine with avocado and it was delicious.|
Chili Lime Enchiladas
Source: The Sisters Cafe
1.5 lbs pork or chicken, cooked and shredded (I used rotisserie chicken)
1/3 c honey
1/4 c lime juice
1 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 (10 oz) cans green enchilada sauce
Shredded cheese (I used a pre-shredded Mexican Blend)
Wheat Tortillas (I used Smart and Delicious high fiber made by LaTortilla Factory)
Mix together Marinade ingredients then add to shredded pork or chicken. Let the meat sit in the marinade for 30 minutes or longer.
Lightly spray pan with non-stick baking spray. Pour green enchilada sauce into pan to coat the bottom. Fill tortillas with shredded meat, desired amount of cheese, and a drizzle of enchilada sauce. Roll and place in dish seam down.
Pour remainder of enchilada sauce over enchiladas and sprinkle more cheese on top. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Then turn on broiler and place enchiladas nearer the top of oven. Let it broil until cheese is slightly brown and crispy. Watch this..I had mine under the broiler for 1.5 minutes and it started to burn. Enjoy!
