Stuffed with a cheese sauce and sautéed shrimp, rolled up and wrapped tight, these Mexican shrimp burritos are baked into a creamy …rich … and decadent treat.
Today’s #SundaySupper theme is “stuff it, roll it and wrap it”. We were to think sandwiches, wraps, tacos, calzones, dumplings, wontons, corndogs, empanadas, samosas, ravioli, spring rolls, egg rolls, lettuce wraps, burritos. Anything stuffed that has a filling with something wrapped around it. Which equals everything I absolutely love.
And if you’re not familiar, the #SundaySupper movement was started by Isabel over at Family Foodie as a project for “bringing back Sunday supper around the family table.” Who can argue with that??? And a special thanks to Amy over at Kimchimom for being our hostess.
These burritos are made with shrimp that’s been sautéed with green onions and wrapped inside a fluffy white tortillas and drizzled with a thickened sauce of Monterey Jack and sour cream that’s been spiked with onion, red bell, jalapeno and Hatch peppers, tomatillo, tomato and zucchini.
After the burritos are rolled and wrapped tight, they’re then smothered with more of the sauce, more cheese and baked until bubbly…and on my plate please!
Don’t let the long list of ingredients scare you away. The end result is melt in your mouth treat that will have your guests begging for the recipe.
