Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound shrimp
  • 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes with chiles, drained
  • 1 cup monterey jack cheese
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 8 small flour tortillas
  • 1/3 cup vegetable broth

Directions

Prep: 1. Chop cilantro. 2.. Quarter onion. Make: 1. In skillet, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium and cook shrimp until opaque. 2. Chop shrimp and toss with tomatoes and cheese. 3. Roll up the shrimp mixture in tortillas; transfer to baking dish and brush lightly with remaining olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes. 4. Meanwhile, in dry skillet, char onion and whole jalapeno over high, turning, until tender. In blender, puree onion, jalapeno, stock and cilantro; season with salt to taste. 5. To serve, drizzle sauce over enchiladas.

Notes

If you prefer a milder flavor, de-seed the jalapeno before using. If you're looking for a little extra spice try a serrano pepper instead. Chicken broth also works great in place of the vegetable broth.
