Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

Do you have dinner plans tonight? Well you do now. These honey lime chicken enchiladas need to be on your menu asap. They are incredible! Thank you Natasha Stoneking, lifestyle blogger of Hello Happiness and owner of children’s boutique Sugar Bit, for this recipe. It is a keeper!

Most food is well received and enjoyed in our house. This past weekend, a group of friends and I were laughing, actually as we were eating these delish enchiladas, about how I literally like all kinds of food. I don’t think there is anything out there I don’t enjoy to eat. Yep, no denying the love and excitement I have for food. As I say to my kids when I’m trying to get them to taste something new, “I won’t steer you wrong when it comes to food”, and friends, same goes for you with this number. You can thank me later. Happy eating!
