  • 1 lb frozen cooked shrimp, defrosted
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 28 oz green enchilada sauce
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup reduced fat sour cream
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 4-oz can diced fire roasted green chilies
  • 8 oz shredded Mexican blend shredded cheese
  • 12- corn tortillas
  • salsa verde for serving (optional)
  • fresh cilantro for serving (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Roughly chop your cooked shrimp and place in a large bowl with ¼ cup enchilada sauce, cumin, chili powder, salt, cayenne pepper, diced green chilies and sour cream. Mix well until everything is well combined.
  3. Pour about ⅔ cup enchilada sauce into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan. Soften your corn tortillas by placing each in a hot skillet for about 10-20 seconds each side. Then, place about ¼ cup shrimp filling into each hot tortilla along with a sprinkle of cheese. Roll up tortilla and place seam-side down in the pan. Repeat until you have used up all your shrimp filling. (You might have a few extra enchiladas that don’t fit—place them in a small pan).
  4. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the pan and sprinkle cheese on top. Cover with tin foil and bake for 20 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  5. Serve with extra salsa, hot sauce and fresh cilantro.
Yield: 12 enchiladas (2 per serving)
