Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

5 T honey
4 T fresh lime juice
1/2 T chili powder
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
2 large chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
8 flour tortillas
1 lb Colby Jack cheese, shredded
1 large can of green enchilada sauce
Mix the honey, lime juice, and spices together with the shredded chicken. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour. Pour 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce into bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Place a scoop of chicken mixture, cheese, and 1 T sauce into middle of a tortilla and roll up. Reserve 1-2 cups of cheese to sprinkle on top of enchiladas. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the top of rolled enchiladas and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. I served mine with Mexican rice, corn, avocado, cilantro, sour cream, and salsa. (Can you tell I like sides for my enchiladas?!)
