Ingredients

  • 1 pound peeled cooked shrimp (21-25 per pound; thawed if frozen), tails removed, diced
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 2 4-ounce cans chopped green chiles (not drained)
  • 2 cups canned green enchilada sauce or green salsa, divided
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 15-ounce can nonfat refried beans
  • 1 cup reduced-fat shredded cheese, such as Mexican-style, Monterey Jack or Cheddar

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degree F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Spread 1/4 cup enchilada sauce (or salsa) in the prepared baking dish.
  • Top with an overlapping layer of 6 tortillas. Spread refried 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.
  • 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.
