  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Core tomato and cut into 1/2" dice.

    Stem and mince cilantro.

    Stem poblano pepper, seed, and cut into 1/2" dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

    Pat shrimp dry.

  2. 2

    Start the Filling

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a large oven-safe non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add shrimp to hot pan. Cook until pink and shrimp reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes per side.

    Remove shrimp to a clean cutting board. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  3. 3

    Finish the Filling

    Add poblano and corn to hot pan. Stir occasionally until poblano is softened, 3-4 minutes.

    While poblano and corn cook, coarsely chop shrimp.

    Add shrimp, tomato, and taco seasoning to pan. Stir occasionally until tomatoes break down, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Form and Cook the Enchiladas

    Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Divide half the shredded cheese (reserve remaining for sauce) between tortillas in an even layer. Top with filling placing in center. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    Tuck one end of tortilla under filling and roll tightly, placing seam side down.

    Return pan used to cook filling to medium-low heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add enchiladas, seam side down to hot pan. Then remove from burner. Transfer pan to hot broiler and broil until starting to brown, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from broiler. Don't text and broil! Keep an eye on the broiler as tortillas may burn. Pan handle will be hot! Use an oven mitt.
