The flavor was pretty good but it didn t look anything like the picture. It was all just mushed together when removed from the dish. The only change I made was adding a little bit of bell pepper and red onion to the shrimp and corn mixture. I will not make it again.
I did this to recipe precision except I used a foil pan not glass. Not sure if that makes a difference but it was very wet. It had good flavor but did not come out of the pan in layers more like slop. The picture here looked nothing how mine came out. Does the glass baking dish make that much difference?
This is by far my favorite recipe on this site and I've tried a lot. My parents were coming for dinner and my father is diabetic and I am on a low calorie diet and this popped right up in the Advanced Search field. I added some black beans to the filling and topped it off with avocado and a dollop of sour cream and served with a side salad with the Cilantro Lime dressing and a side of pinto beans. The entire family loved it and we had enough leftovers for 2 days. (also next time I will get creative and try different filling ingredients such as crab meat or chicken or carne asada - this recipe can be so versitile it will be fun to try! Also - I agree with above that heating the refried beans helps them spread easier. I will absoluetly do this dish again!
Redonkulous My family left the table asking for the recipe. I was blown away at how tasty this dish was considering I'm not a huge fan of shrimp dishes. I will definitely make this again and again! Pros: easy quick delicious
Simple easy and basic I like the concept of this recipe and will make it again. However I think I'll either put less refried beans or put the refried beans on the side because they overwhelm/mask the flavor of the shrimp. Also I would suggest putting some cheese inside the layers with just a small amount of cheese on top. Pros: hearty Cons: not a lot of flavor
Delicious easy dish! My boyfriend's absolute favorite meal now and one of mine too! So easy and delicious there's next to no prep work! I add in a mix of frozen peppers and onions with the frozen corn and add an extra layer of the refried beans to use more of them!
Easy and tasty and make-ahead I made this in morning - took about 15 mins to put together. Sauteed shrimp in pan with some chipotle powder. Then I sauteed chopped red bell pepper. Added both to the corn mix - not heated since it was going in fridge anyway. Used refried black beans and queso fresco on top. Took it out of fridge at 5 oven at 6 was great. Definitely better with lime.
Great dinner for the boyfriends parents -cook raw shrimp with half an onion until shrimp are pink - heat the refried beans on the stove - do not add shrimp to microwave mixture -layer dish pan with enchilda sauce than put on 1st layer of tortillas than put on first layer of beams than shrimp than corn mixture than layer of cheese than cover with a layer or tortillas and repeat layers.-á -put on top coat of tortillas and follow recipe Not as healthy as the original but it taste great!! Pros: Filling good flavor easy to make light Mexican food Cons: Had to make a lot of little changes to the recipe but it turned out amazing!
The family loved it!! I made a lot of little changes to the original recipe: -used raw shrimp and cooked it on the stove with half an onion -heated the refrained beans in separate dish on the stove -heat up corn mixture without shrimp -1st layer I put on the beans than shrimp than corn mixture than small layer of cheese -I put on a second layer of tortillas and than repeated the prior step -put on top layer of tortillas and added some enchilada sauce to the top So basically I added onions cooked the shrimp heated the beans added a second layer to the casserole and used a lot more cheese. Everyone loved it. To keep it healthy probably use less cheese and maybe don't do a second layer. Hope you like it as much as we did:) Pros: Taste great very filling good Mexican food without all the cream
Easy Weeknight Meal I used raw shrimp and sauteed it for just a bit (1-2 minutes) before adding it to the corn mixture AFTER microwaving and the shrimp wasn't too chewy at all. I didn't find the refried beans to be overpowering but I'm sure black beans would be tasty in it too. All in all I'll be making it again!
Pretty good I liked it okay but I couldn't really taste the shrimp because the refried beans have such a strong flavor. Also the shrimp were pretty chewy from cooking for so long. I wonder if raw shrimp wouldn't work better Also black beans instead of refried beans as earlier poster suggested. I served with cilantro and a dollop of sour cream. Pros: Healthy lowfat simple Cons: Bland
Flavorful and filling This is an excellent recipe. One serving is very filling and is packed full of flavor. I added chopped jalapenos and a bit of jalapeno juice as I like spice and that did the trick.
Not only delicious but pretty to look at too! This recipe turned out to be exactly the way it was described: low fat quick and easy and delicious! My family kept going back for more. It will definitely be one of our go-to recipes from now on. I used green salsa made with tomatillos so lots of flavor and organic black bean refried beans as well as rice cheddar cheese. Everything worked out very well.
MEH I made it like the recipe said but added lots of spices and jalapenos. Used raw shrimp and sauteed... If I made this again I would use black beans instead of no-fat refried. This recipe was bland. My husband didn't like it much either. Just meh! Pros: Low fat Cons: beans were nasty
Wasn't what I was hoping for... I made this dish today and I was a little nervous at first. I've never had green enchilada sauce before. It wasn't bad but it certainly wasn't something that I loved. I read some of the comments and I'll probably try it again and try it with red sauce instead of green next time.
I made this for the first time last night and my boyfriend liked it a lot. He went back for seconds. This was pretty easy to make which was great since I had a long day at work and didn't have the energy to do anything really complicated.
My family liked this (our kids are 7 and 5). I personally didn't like putting the shrimp in the microwave for 2 minutes. They were a bit rubbery and I think it may have been from being in the micro. I will try it again but may use black beans - chicken would be nice in this too - if I use shrimp I will not put them in the microwave. I gave this dish 2 instead of 3 stars because of the shrimp. It was super easy to make though and my family liked it...can't go wrong with that!
Have made this for my husband and myself and find that we always full and have leftovers for the next night. We absolutely love this recipe and I have shared it with many friends. I do substitute a cup of hominy for the corn and I feel that it adds an even more authentic Mexican taste to it.
This is in regular rotation at our house - perfect for a weeknight dinner when the last thing you want to do is cook. I recommend using low-sodium beans and salsa as the sodium can add up quickly if you're not careful. The fresh cilantro and lime are key - they make the dish really special. I serve this with a green salad with a citrusy dressing and avocado it's a great light summery meal.
We made four trays of this for a buffet lunch after a graduation ceremony. It was great. With thirty people we only had one tray left. We had 3 guests ask us for the recipe. I read the comment about the microwave and released that we heated it on the stove top instead of the microwave. Otherwise we followed the recipe.
WOW!!! This is incredible! FAST Healthy and DELICIOUS! I heated the mixture on the stovetop too and added the cilantro to that...also added another layer of corn tortillas cuz I had extra enchilada sauce. Hubby already put his order in for chicken ones and for me to make this once a week! A zillion Thanks or a renewed dinner menu! cindy
Just tried this recipe last night for a birthday dinner and it was excellent. I used a brand of Green chile enchilada sauce called "505" but I think any sauce would be good. I bought the tiny precooked shrimp so as to cut down on dicing up the larger ones. I served it with a pico de gallo and avocado salad on lettuce greens. This is going to be a "go to" recipe for me. It is quick easy does not take a lot of ingredients and is very very tasty!
This meal was a hit with my whole family. I didn't have pre-cooked shrimp on hand but had some raw so I peeled cut and cooked with PAM and added some chili powder garlic salt and pepper until it was pink. No need to microwave if you are cooking the shimp plus it gave it a fresher flavor. I also poured on all 32 ounces of enchilada sauce and thought it was too much at first but it soaked in nicely. Agree that heating the beans makes a huge difference and they spread much easier. Made some homemade pinto beans and a tomato/avacado salad and it was one of the best meals of the summer!
My husband and I loved this! Couldn't get green enchilada sauce in my neck of the woods so I used red and it was yummy. Since pepper jack is also not available I used sambal gouda cheese which added a bit of kick. I think a sprinkling of diced black olives would be nice to add along with a spoonful of 0% greek yogurt which is our sour cream substitute. Eaten together with a citrussy salad with avocado and you can't go wrong!
While the recipe was tasty it came out a bit 'wet ' whether because of the thawed corn the chiles or the shrimp I don't know. While I understand the appeal of making this in a short time I think the consistency of the filling would have been better if it had been cooked longer (say 45 min.) at a lower temperature (around 375 degrees) to give it time to get a little drier.
First Date Meal I used some beans that I had made earlier in the week and smashed them instead of canned refried beans. It was easy and my date asked for a second helping. I shared this recipe with my friends and family!
Yummy! This was a really easy recipe that came out great. I made half without beans for my husband and it came out fine. It was a little too juicy even letting it sit for 10 minutes after it came out of the oven will TRY to wait a little longer before digging in next time. The extra juice soaked in the leftovers and they have been good all week as leftovers. Yum will be making again Pros: tasty easy to make
it was wonderful after a few changes!! I substituted 1 can of chopped jalapenos for 1 of the cans of green chilis and I omitted the corn. I will add another can of Refried beans the next time I make it. I will definitely be making this again. My hubby says its a keeper!! Pros: I love using pre cooked shrimp Cons: corn everything TEX MEX these days has corn in it. YUCK!
