Roasted Shrimp Enchiladas

These creamy, cheesy enchiladas are made with shrimp that has been seasoned with Mexican flavors and roasted in the oven with peppers, onions, mushrooms, and LA MORENA® Sliced Jalapeno Peppers. The cheesy sauce has another kick of the Jalapeno Peppers in the sauce, along with a little of the brine from the pickled peppers.

When the boys were really young, I would make them a cheese enchilada that they absolutely loved. Back in that day, we ate a lot of vegetarian foods. Being raised by a vegetarian mom, it was something I would crave and still do actually! However, I also had a dad who was not vegetarian so I kind of had the best of both food worlds!

Now that the kids are grown, everyone’s taste buds have expanded and we all are fans of seafood. Especially when it is made with a ton of flavor like we have in these Roasted Shrimp Enchiladas!

Corn tortillas are the wrap of choice for these enchiladas however you can use flour tortillas in place of corn if you wish. We really love it with the corn though!

What really sets these enchiladas off though are the LA MORENA® Jalapeno Peppers. The flavor is absolutely out of this world and if you make this recipe, it will be essential that you use these peppers. They come whole or sliced. I bought the sliced and diced them up. You can do the same with the whole peppers also if you wish.

These enchiladas also won Grumpy over. I’m stoked because I heard him tell his dad when they were talking on the phone the other night about how rockin’ these were! For Grumpy to compliment enchiladas, that is a big accomplishment. He usually turns his nose up at anything enchilada.

    Just made these and the flavor is great but they were so spicy….we eat lots of spicy food but these we over the top. I will make it again but stuff pablano chilies with the mixture with half the jalapeño! Great flavor!

      Hi Brenda, I’m sorry these were too spicy for you. You can always reduce the amount of heat by cutting down on the jalapenos in the recipe. Thank you for trying this and making this as a stuffing for poblano chillies sounds delish!

    I cut the jalapenos in half, but still found the heat excessive. My poor Irish-Scotch wife tried to pick out the jalapenos. I’ll most likely eat the leftovers over time. A few jalapenos would be nice. I’d probably go more with green chilies next time.

    Not sure if people realized but the Jalapenos pictured are pickled. Is that what you used? We really like the tamed and have found them to be much less spicy.

      Yes, the jalapenos in the recipe are pickled and in the ingredients list I have included the specific brand I used. Thank you!
