Shrimp Enchiladas Verde

Ingredient:

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

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degree F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.
Combine shrimp, corn, chiles 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.

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.
