Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas
You will need:
3 cups of chopped cook chicken breast (or cooked veggie protein source such as tofu or "chicken" strips)
quesadilla cheese (or use low fat cheddar/jack)
a jar of green taco sauce (or can or enchilada sauce).
Preheat oven to 400 F and spray an 11 x 7 pan with non stick spray (or place an additional 1/2 cup taco sauce in the bottom if you have enough).
In a small bowl mix:
2 Tablespoons lime juice
1/4 cup honey
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 good pinches of cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon Penzey's roasted garlic powder (or a small spoonful of minced garlic).
a dash of white pepper
Toss cooked chicken or protein source in mixture and stir until coated with the sauce
In each tortilla - place 1/3 cup of the chicken mixture, When enchiladas are all rolled up - top with the bottle of the green taco sauce, or use a 10 ounce can of green enchilada sauce. Sprinkle the top with one cup of Quesadilla cheese (often found with the tortillas that are in the refrigerated section of the supermarket).
Bake 20-25 minutes - until heated through and the cheese melted.
Serve topped with Rotel and/or some non fat sour cream. Each enchilada is just under 300 calories. My husband ate two, but one with veggies on the side was plenty filling for me. With my other meals being a smoothie w/fruit and low sodium, homemade soup with a piece of whole grain bread (and a glass of wine,) I was still well under 1500 calories for the day and had leftovers for another meal with my husband.
