Easy Creamy Shrimp Enchiladas

Not everyone is a shrimp lover but for those of us who are this is a must try.  These Easy Creamy Shrimp Enchiladas are a shrimp lovers dream and really only require about twenty-twenty five minutes and are worth every minute.  Fresh shrimp, sweet red bell pepper, jalapeno (don’t panic the amount can be adjusted) garlic and shallots are all sauteed with just a tad of seasoning for just a couple of minutes. 

 This mixture is then rolled in flour tortillas.  Meanwhile you are going to make a creamy cheese sauce with just a few ingredients including sour cream and Monterey Jack cheese.  They are popped in the oven for just a few minutes to brown off the cheese and reheat.  Sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro and you are your loved ones are ready to chow.
