Honey Lime Enchiladas Recipe

My littles love this sweeter version of enchiladas because it’s not “picy” which makes it a regular at our house!  Sometimes I sneak in corn, beans and even finely chopped bell peppers as well. It makes a great freezer meal too!

    Thank you for your site! I am really looking forward to freezer cooking. I will have to see how long this food will actually last our family and make sure with the budget that I can actually buy the food at once. I would LOVE to go to the store throughout the month for just drink refills! God bless you!

    Made these tonight…they were DELISH! Even make a batch of vegetarian ones for my son. This recipe is a keeper 🙂
