Incredible Shrimp Enchiladas

I'm a Maryland girl and I love seafood.  I enjoy cooking with shrimp and clams and crab and lobster and any kind of fish.  I also love Mexican food...not too spicy and with lots of cheese!  So it's only natural that one of my favorite recipes is Seafood Enchiladas....or in this case I've narrowed it down to shrimp.  You will love this recipe! Absolutely delicious!

Shrimp Enchiladas

8 (6-inch) flour tortillas
1 pound small shrimp, peeled and de-veined
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons chili Powder
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup white onion, diced finely
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (15 Oz. Size) Enchilada Sauce
2 1/2 cups grated Jack Cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9 x 13 pan with non stick cooking spray.

Toss shrimp in a tablespoon of olive oil. Sprinkle shrimp with cumin and chili powder and grill on skewers just until slightly pink. Set aside.

In a large skillet melt the 2 tablespoons of butter and the oil. Saute the onion and garlic until slightly soft.  Transfer onions and garlic to a plate or bowl and pour in the enchilada sauce and reduce the heat to low, allowing the sauce to warm through. Pour 1 cup of sauce into the casserole dish.

To assemble the enchiladas, dip a tortilla into the sauce then lay on a sheet pan or plate. Sprinkle some cheese down the middle, followed by some shrimp, and finally, some of the onion mixture. Roll it up tightly, then place it, seam side down, in the pan. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas.  Pour the rest of the sauce over the enchiladas, then sprinkle on the rest of the cheese. Bake it for 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.  Remove it from the oven and let it sit for 15-20 minutes before serving.
