Honey Flavors and Colors

Honey has different flavors and colors, depending on the location and kinds of flowers the bees visit. Climatic conditions of the area also influence its flavor and color.


Place oil in a heavy skillet. Cook onions and mushrooms over medium heat, stirring often. Add spinach, grated carrots, and garlic, stirring until spinach is wilted. Stir in water, beans, lemon juice, scallions, and cheese, until cheese is melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
In a small pan, heat enchilada sauce. Stir in honey.
Warm a skillet over medium high heat. Place one tortilla at a time in pan. Cook for approximately 2 minutes on each side. Divide filling between tortillas and roll up. Spoon sauce on top. Serve with sour cream if desired.
