Shrimp with spicy tomatillo-and-cilantro sauce, a common combination in coastal Mexican cuisine, make bright-tasting enchiladas. Precooked shrimp help get them on your table in a hurry.
Makes 8 servings.
Active Minutes: 20
Total: 45 minutes


• 1 pound peeled cooked shrimp (21-25 per pound; thawed if frozen), tails removed, diced
• 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
• 2 4-ounce cans chopped green chiles (not drained)
• 2 cups canned green enchilada sauce or green salsa, divided
• 12 corn tortillas
• 1 15-ounce can nonfat refried beans
• 1 cup reduced-fat shredded cheese, such as Mexican-style, Monterey Jack or Cheddar
• ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
• 1 lime, cut into wedges


1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Coat a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.

2. Combine shrimp, corn, chiles and ½ cup enchilada sauce (or salsa) in a microwave-safe medium bowl. Cover and microwave on High until heated through, 2½ minutes.

3. Spread ¼ cup enchilada sauce (or salsa) in the prepared baking dish. Top with an overlapping layer of 6 tortillas. Spread refried beans evenly over the tortillas. Top the beans with the shrimp mixture, followed by the remaining 6 tortillas. Pour the remaining sauce (or salsa) over the tortillas. Cover with foil.

4. Bake the enchiladas until they begin to bubble on the sides, about 20 minutes. Remove the foil; sprinkle cheese on top. Continue baking until heated through and the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes more. Top with cilantro and serve with lime wedges.

To Make Ahead: Prepare through Step 2, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Allow the cold baking dish to warm slightly before placing in a hot oven.
