Honey-Lime Enchiladas

If summer were to make an enchilada, it would be something like this. With all the cheese, I think of enchiladas as being very heavy, and certainly a cold-weather food. But not these guys. They’re light, and fresh, and bright. That will only make sense when you try them..

These enchiladas were the perfect blend of sweet and savory with a hint of tart from the lime juice. Truly amazing.

And husband-approved.

I am so glad yesterday is over. Just about everything went wrong yesterday and I left work and just had a good cry on my way home. Sometimes that is just what a girl needs. Lucky for me, I got to class and an old student of mine brought me raspberry sorbet as a thank you for writing him a letter of recommendation. So sweet! And he said he used half the amount of sugar. It was perfect! Thanks, A! :-D I told him last night he made my day – so true! And the sorbet is amazing…I had a big dip when I got home from teaching ;)

Tonight starts a new weight management class that my private practice is running as more of a “support group”. It sounds like a great group of 11 women who are eager to improve their diets and increase their activity! I can’t wait for 5:30PM!

I promise to catch up with everyone soon — sorry for being MIA, this weekend/week has been insanely busy. I’m glad I have recipes in queue to share ;)

Question: What’s your favorite flavor of sorbet?

P.S. Be SURE to stop by tomorrow for my blogiversary…..LOTS of giveaways!! :-D

Happy day,


  1. Wait a sec? Honey in Enchiladas!? I gotta do this.

  2. I’ve made these before and they ARE awesome! I love your pictures!

  3. I can’t believe that recipe required a pound of cheese!! Sometimes its so easy to make a few simple substitutions and save a lot of calories. I’m a huge fan of reduced and fat free dairy.

  4. I’m sorry you had a bad day yesterday, but at least your student was So sweet!! Seems like your dinner was a success though too! Those look yummy!! Hope today is better for ya!

  5. As usual, looks delish!! Sorry you had a crummy day, and you’re right, sometimes a good cry is needed! Hope the rest of your week is fab!

  6. I’ve had those kinds of days. Glad your student could help cheer you up! :)

  7. The enchiladas and the sorbet sound great! Have a great Tuesday!

  8. will be making these this weekend! And now I have sorbet on the brain-I think I’ll do a mango sorbet.

  9. Ok – I need to try these. Ive been craving enchiladas like crazy for the past few weeks – I just keep forgetting to buy the ingredients.

    How sweet of your old student to bring you sorbet. People like that make you forget about all the jerks out there.

  10. Oooh, Nicole you are a girl after my own heart! I’ve literally been dying for enchiladas and here you are with a fantastic recipe…fate! ;)

    My fav flavor of sorbet is strawberry!

  11. What an unusual combination of ingredients but they look amazing.

    Sorry you had such a bad day but a good cry sometimes relieves us of all that stress.

    Sorbet-so many flavors it’s hard to choose just one but I do love coconut!

  12. Sorry to hear about the bad day. These enchiladas must have made you feel a little better. They look so incredibly good.

    I don’t eat much sorbet, I did try one that was merlot flavored and it was berry-like with a hint of wine. So good!

  13. What a sweet student you have, and you apparently taught them well since he knew to reduce the sugar ;)

    Your enchiladas look awesome, I am definetly hanging on to this recipe. My favorite sorbet is raspberry.

  14. These look great…any tips for making a vegetarian version? Thanks for all the great recipes. The pear and arugula pizza has become a household favorite. :)

  15. awe…sorry you had an icky day! Nice that the sorbet made it better! :) I think of all the Mexican dishes, enchiladas are by far, my favorite. I really enjoy well made seafood ones! But if I had to pick a fav…it would be cheese filled ones! :) of course, I don’t ever order them….or make them….( the cheese ones!)

  16. You had me at honey! I have to give these a try! Yumm!
    Sorry your day didn’t go all that great yesterday. Sometimes you do just need a good cry. Hope today is better.

  17. Nicole, the sound of these enchiladas are very tempting…love the idea of honey and lime…a touch of sweet. And indeed looks delicious.
    Hope you are having a great week :-)

  18. Can’t wait to try these this summer, yum!
