Recipe & picture courtesy of Family Circle

Makes: 10 enchiladas
Bake: at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 12 minutes

  • 3 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 poblano or 1 green pepper, cored and cut into 1-inch strips
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 package (1 pound) fully cooked frozen shrimp, thawed and coarsely chopped
  • 2 Tbs. flour
  • 1 cup fat-free half-and-half
  • 1 can (10 ounces) enchilada sauce
  • 4 ounces reduced-calorie cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 1 package (17.5 ounces) fajita-size flour tortillas
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, peppers and garlic and cook 7 minutes, until softened. Stir in shrimp; remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Sprinkle with flour and whisk until smooth. Whisk in fat-free half-and-half and continue to cook over medium-high heat until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in enchilada sauce, whisking continuously until blended.
    Remove sauce from heat, and stir 3/4 cup of the sauce and 1/4 cup of the shredded cheese into the shrimp mixture.
  3. Coat a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon 1/3 cup shrimp mixture down center of one tortilla. Roll tightly to enclose filling, then transfer to prepared dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling. Pour remaining sauce over enchiladas, spreading to edges, then top with remaining 3/4 cup shredded cheese.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes, until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly. Cool slightly before serving.

**Personal Review: In a simple review – YUM!  On a scale from easy to hard on difficulty making this dish – I would give it a medium-easy.  It was full of flavor and every last bite was gobbled up!**
