Chicken Lime Enchiladas
Easy, delicious, Chicken Lime Enchiladas for a weeknight meal!
I have a thing for cheese. And rice krispie treats. And chocolate cake. But right now let’s talk about enchiladas covered in melted cheese. This is one very healthy dinner.
Do you see that plate with all the veggies? That’s health food, people. Stay with me.
The enchiladas have cumin in them, which is one of my favorite seasonings, ever. Unless cocoa powder counts as a seasoning? Hmm…
Anyways, make these for dinner, load your plate with veggies, and grab a bite!
Oh man, look at that cheese. Whoops, forgot the veggies on this bite, but there is a little piece of cilantro…and it is green…so I think it counts towards my “green leafy vegetables.” Don’t tell my kids I said that though.
