Number of Servings: 6


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


1. Preheat oven to 425 degree F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Saute onion with 1 tbsp of cilantro
3. Combine shrimp, corn, chiles, onion and 1/2 cup enchilada sauce (or salsa) in a microwave-safe medium bowl. Cover and microwave on High until heated through, 2 1/2 minutes.
3. Spread 1/4 cup enchilada sauce (or salsa) in the prepared baking dish. Top with an overlapping layer of 6 tortillas. Spread black 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.

  • I made this recipe (found the original on Food Network) tonight. I like your addition of the onion, I will try that next time! We didn't care for the shrimp so next time will try other meat. Excellent recipe with versatility. I like more fresh cilantro on top and sour cream. Thanks! - 1/15/09
