Honey Lime Enchiladas

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Sassy in da South

I nice variation to traditional enchiladas. With a slightly sweetness to the meat, the sauce gives the "kick". Prep/Cook time does not include marination time, so plan accordingly.

I have made these for just my own family and also when a large group of family was visiting. They were delicious when I made the single batch, but when I tried doubling the recipe the next time, I found the honey was too much. I would be careful and not quite double the honey if doubling the rest. A little goes a long way. I also made with half -n-half and was great.
