Shrimp and enchiladas? Yep, they are a thing! These delicious, creamy, cheesy, white sauce shrimp enchiladas are special occasion-worthy but also easy enough for a weeknight!


如果你从未想过结合虾+ Enchiladas,我不得不说(没有明显地试图让你感觉不好):你一直错过了。


I happen to be firmly in the love-shrimp-so-much-I-wanna-cry camp, but I still try and lovingly associate with those friends and family who don’t.

Have you made these enchiladas?



My Aunt Marilyn (who has provided me AND you with多年来这么多精彩的食谱万博半全场)通过这个食谱给我,我认为Brian和我将永远感激。

We both love it so much. Brian, who doesn’t emote quite as much excitement as I do over food (or good jeans), has been known to do a little hop of excitement when he knows these shrimp enchiladas are happening.


The creamy white sauce is flavorful and simple – complimenting the tender shrimp perfectly without overpowering their somewhat delicate flavor.奖金:you can alter the amount of heat in the recipe to be as spicy or as mild as you like.

  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow or white onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano

  • 1/4茶匙卡宴胡椒(为辣椒酱添加更多)
  • 1/4茶匙黑胡椒
  • 1汤匙通用面粉
  • 3/4 cup cream or milk (I almost always use 2% milk)
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1/2杯酸奶,光或常规

Shrimp Mixture:

  • 1 tablespoon butter, canola oil, coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1/2杯切碎的洋葱
  • 1 1/2至2磅虾,去皮,去切割成一口尺寸的碎片
  • 2杯S.ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack cheese
  • 8 (9-inch) flour tortillas


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9X13-inch dish and set aside.
  2. 对于酱汁,在一个大,12英寸的不粘锅煎锅,融化黄油,加入甜椒和洋葱。煮,经常搅拌,直到脆嫩。
  3. 加入盐,牛至,大蒜粉,胡椒,辣椒和面粉;搅拌良好,煮,持续搅拌约一分钟。万博体育app官网在奶油或牛奶中搅拌,继续烹饪3分钟或直到略微加厚。加奶酪;搅拌直至融化。加入酸奶油,搅拌混合。搁置。
  4. For the shrimp,in another skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter or oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent and soft, 3-5 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook until the shrimp just turn pink, 1-2 minutes (don't overcook or the shrimp will be tough).
  5. 加入切碎的西红柿和1/2的奶酪酱;搅拌结合。
  6. 勺子约1/3万博体育app官网杯虾混合物进入每个玉米饼。在上面撒上奶酪并紧紧地滚动辣酱玉米饼。在制备的烘焙盘中将缝线侧排列。将剩余的奶酪酱匙子在玉米饼上,撒上剩余的奶酪。
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes until hot and bubbly. Let the enchiladas rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.


玉米饼: I've used many different types and brands of tortillas over the years for these enchiladas. I really love the corn + wheat tortillas from Trader Joe's, but regular flour tortillas or basic corn tortillas work great, too! The cook-your-own tortillas are tasty as well if you want to go to that extra step (and they seem to hold up better in terms of sogginess, if that's a motivating factor for you).
