Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas

I cleaned out my pantry on Tuesday. I don't know about you, but when I clean out my pantry I usually find a few things that are expired, a ton of things I didn't know I had, and one item that I thought I was out of and kept buying...and buying...and buying...until you have more of it than any family could possibly need.

This time that one item was Green Enchilada Sauce. I use red a lot more than I use green. A LOT lot more. But I only had 2 cans of red and like a million cans of green. Okay, maybe only 20, but I am going to have to find some recipes that use green enchilada sauce. Like this one I found on Just Another Day in Paradise:


If you want to make it too, you can get the recipe HERE.  If you have any recipes using green enchilada sauces, please share them with me in the comment section.  And if you don't like green enchilada sauce, I am sure I will be joining you soon from overconsumption.

YUM! After I get these kiddies off to school (one went today and the other starts all day kindergarten on Tuesday!), I am vowing to start cooking again, REAL meals that are good for us. Just been snowed under lately; now it's time to dig out from about 8 years of craziness!

I don't have a pantry. Yours must be huge to have all of that stuff in there you didn't remember. I usually buy what we need to eat and we usually eat everything. I'm not a big fan of the green sauce but you can probably just make recipes that call for red sauce and substitute the green.

Carmen,

My pantry actually isn't that big. I used to have a pantry that I LOVED! In this house it is just a small closet (as wide as a door) but the thing is PACKED! I actually have a picture that goes with a post I might get around to posting one of these days!

The reason I didn't see the enchilada sauce was it was burried behind all of the other things. I keep a three month supply of stuff in my pantry, so it gets a little crowded!
