This is a place for me to track recipes we try. Sometimes we like the recipe, sometimes we do not, and sometimes only one or two members of our family like the recipe. I try to cook from scratch and we try to avoid processed foods. As such some of the recipes I post can sometimes be a little time consuming. I also try to buy and cook with locally grown organic products. I am willing to pay a little more to achieve this goal. If I can't find local organic I buy locally produced foods and then organic foods from elsewhere. I'm a big supporter of the "eat local" idea. I do belong to 2 different CSA's here in Utah, I buy from Crossroads Urban Center's food co-op, and I am a frequent shopper at local farmer's markets.
This is a recipe that I've thought of making for a few years now but I always put it off and never make it. Well I finally got around to making them and I'm so upset I hadn't done it before. The flavors are really good and blend so well together. I was fearful of the honey and lime combo with chicken enchiladas but it really worked well. I've made these twice since I made them for the first time. I'm always finding the rotisserie chickens marked down at the store and looking for ways to use them and this recipe fits the bill. I believe the original recipe calls for flour tortillas but I much prefer corn tortillas in enchiladas. These also freeze well if your into making freezer dinners.
