ROASTED SHRIMP ENCHILADAS WITH JALAPEÑO CREAM SAUCE




It’s been 3 days since my wisdom teeth got pulled out and I’m happy to report back that I can finally eat real food. I’ve been eating Korean-style porridge since Monday, which I like to eat occasionally but not for 2 meals a day for 4 days straight.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle pepper, in adobo sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 12 (6-inch) corn tortillas, warmed
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

FOR THE JALAPEÑO CREAM SAUCE
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 jalapeños, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to tast
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves


DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place shrimp onto the prepared baking sheet. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt and pepper, to taste, and gently toss to combine. Place into oven and roast just until pink, firm and cooked through, about 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before dicing into bite-size pieces.
  3. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9×13 baking dish or coat with nonstick spray.
