Honey Lime Enchiladas

This recipe came from The Cookin Mama's Blog
It is so delicious.  
Honey Lime Enchiladas
by: The Cookin Mamas
6 tablespoons honey (I melt the honey in the microwave)
5 tablespoons lime juice (1 large lime)
1 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pound chicken, cooked and shredded (I used 3 small chicken breasts)
1/4-1/2 cup minced onions
1 clove garlic minced
8-10 flour tortillas
1 pound monterey jack cheese, shredded
16 ounces green enchilada sauce, (I actually use a big 28 oz. can because it's yummy)
1 cup heavy cream (to lighten them up, I substituted sour cream)

Mix the first four ingredients and toss with shredded chicken. Let it marinate for at least 1/2 hour. Pour about 1/2 cup enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9X13 baking pan. Fill flour tortillas with chicken and shredded cheese, minced onion & garlic, saving about 1 cup of cheese to sprinkle on top of enchiladas. Mix the remaining enchilada sauce with the cream and leftover marinade(I don't always have left over marinade, guess the chicken absorbs it all sometimes). Pour sauce on top of the enchiladas and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until brown and crispy on top.
Makes a 15 X 10 1/2  pan
