More About This Recipe
  • There’s nothing better than eating something healthy and delicious! These shrimp enchiladas are packed with important nutrients and flavor. In fact, Health.com reports that a 4-ounce serving of shrimp contains over 75 percent for vitamin B12! Let’s not forget the sauce! While traditional enchilada sauce contains red or green chili sauce, this recipe calls for frozen corn and butter sauce (Can you say yum?). This unique sauce, in addition to a few sprigs of fresh cilantro, helps bring out the flavor of the shrimp. And of course, the sauce still has Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles for a little extra flavor. Ever wonder what’s in enchilada sauce? The secret is in our how to make enchiladas guide.
