DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Melt butter in a small sauce pan, then whisk the flour in gradually. Once you have a thick butter/flour mixture, slowly whisk in the milk to create a thick white sauce. Whisk in 1 cup cheddar cheese. Season with the cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, cilantro, and salt and pepper.
  • In a frying pan, heat vegetable oil, then add onions and peppers. Sautee until soft, then add shrimp/chicken, cooking until the meat is cooked through.
  • Add the cheese sauce to the pan with the peppers, onions and meat and stir. Spoon the cheese and meat mixture into the tortillas, about 2 or 3 tablespoons, then roll the tortilla and place in a greased baking dish, seam side down. After all the tortillas are filled and placed in the dish, cover with the tomato sauce, remaining cheese/meat sauce, the remaining 1/2 c cheese, and sprinkle with cilantro.
  • Bake for 25 minutes at 350.
