These are a family favorite of ours. I am making them tonight with shrimp and lobster.

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 medium-size red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 medium-size green bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 1/4 pounds medium shrimp, shelled, deveined and cut in half crossways
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 2 cans green enchilada sauce
  • 3 tablespoons half-and-half
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese

Directions

1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and pepper; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add shrimp; cook an additional 3 minutes, until shrimp is opaque. Stir in corn, 1/4 cup water, chili powder and cumin. Heat through.

2. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

3. Wrap four tortillas in damp paper towels. Microwave 30 seconds. Brush one side of each tortilla with sauce. Spoon 1/2 cup shrimp mixture on each. Roll up and place seam-side down in prepared dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling. Top with any extra filling.

4. Mix remaining sauce with half-and-half. Spoon over enchiladas. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 375 degrees F, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until bubbly.
