We love Mexican food. In fact we love it so much, we eat it at least twice a week in our house. It’s always fairly cheap, quick, and always delicious and filling. While we love my notorious chicken enchiladas, or beef tacos in a crispy fried shell, sometimes you just want something a little lighter and different. Which, can be hard to come by in Mexican cuisine. Enter these shrimp enchiladas. Now, I’m always a fan of anything shrimp – because we can get them so fresh, for a great price. But, to then cover them cheese sauce an wrap it in a tortilla? Sign me up!

These have become my new favorite meal. We’ve already had it twice in two weeks, and that’s not like us. They come together so quickly, with minimal effort. The most painstaking part was peeling and deveining the shrimp, which I’ve become pretty proficient with in all these years of practice. I used Pepper Jack, and I liked the hint of spice that it lent to the dish. I’ll admin, I was a little bit hesitant that the enchiladas had no sauce on the top. Believe me when I say this, you won’t miss it! The filling is so gooey and delicious, I think that sauce on the top would just be overkill. I did have some leftover cheese that I sprinkled on before baking. If you’re looking at a few blanks on your menu plan next week, fill one of them in with these delicious enchiladas. I’d bet they’ll become a new favorite for you too!
