Instructions
 

  • Start with the shrimp. Pat dry with paper towels and toss with half of the tex mex spice blend.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp avocado oil in a large pan over medium heat. Saute the shrimp for 2 minutes each side. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Heat the other 1 Tbsp avocado oil in the same pan. Add the vegetables and sprinkle with the remaining tex mex spice blend. Cook the vegetables until softened over medium heat, 7-8 minutes.
  • Add the mushroom "chorizo" to the pan along with the mushroom stock. Cook over low heat for 10-12 minutes.
  • Return the shrimp to the pan and turn off the heat.
  • Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Assemble the enchiladas by scooping 1-2 Tbsp of the shrimp & mushroom mixture onto the tortillas. Roll the tortillas tightly and place seam-side down in the baking dish.
  • *Optional step is to add an enchilada sauce or salsa to the top of the enchiladas for extra moisture/flavor.*
  • Top the enchiladas with shredded oaxaca cheese and cover the baking sheet with foil.
  • Bake the enchiladas in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and turn on broiler. Broil until the cheese is bubbly and golden, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Remove the enchiladas from the oven. Top with tomatoes, jalapeños, shredded lettuce, sour cream and cotija cheese.
