  • In med sauce pan, heat and mix shrimp, 3/4 cup enchilada sauce, green chiles, mushrooms, and peppers over med-high for about 5 minutes or until pretty hot, stirring occationally. if you dont use my encilada sauce recipe, add spiceyness to taste. (red pepper flakes, jalapenos ect.).
  • while shrimp mix is heating, place 1/2 cup enchilada sauce in bottom of baking pan and place 4 tortillas (I cut a couple in half and place against edges to cover more of the surface area!) spread the can of beans over the tortillas.
  • spoon 1/2 of the shrimp mix over the beans in the baking dish, sprinkle half of the green onion over the shrimp mix, cover with or 4 more torillas (they will overlap) and spoon rest of the shrimp mix over the tortillas.
  • top with remaining tortillas (I cut them into quarters and just lay them out evenly) and pour remaining enchilada sauce over entire dish! cover with foil and bake 20 minute.
  • after 20 min, uncover, top with cheese and sprinkle remaining onion over cheese and bake 5 more minute Enjoy!
