Baked Shrimp Chimi's

Baked Shrimp Chimi's



Baked Shrimp Chimi's

1-2 TB margarine
1 3/4 cups shrimp either small or cut up.(fresh is best, I used frozen and they were a lil fishy)
1 1/3 cup shredded Mexican Cheese
1 cup fresh chunky salsa (see earlier recipe posted)
1/3 cup fresh chunky salsa
2 large flour tortillas
Sour cream

-Preheat oven to 400
-Heat margarine over high heat and then add shrimp.
If shrimp is precooked, just heat....if fresh shrimp, cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. Don't over cook or they will be tough.
-After shrimp is done, add cheese, and 1 cup salsa to the shrimp and stir to blend.
-Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
-Microwave tortillas one at a time for about 15 seconds to make easy to handle.
-Spoon almost half of the shrimp mixture on to the tortilla and roll up tightly like a burrito.
-Set on sprayed pan seam side up to minimize leakage. Use toothpicks if you have to to keep closed.
-Repeat with second tortilla, leaving about a 4th or 5th of the shrimp mixture in the pan.
-Spray top of chimi's and pop in oven to bake for 10-15 minutes. (check after 10.)
-Remove from oven when crispy and top with the remaining shrimp mixture, 1/3 cup salsa, and a little sour cream, guacamole, ect.....whatever you wish.
-Serve with rice, beans, chips n salsa, ect.
-These could be fried, which would probably make them even that much more delicious, but I am trying to be a little healthier, and these DO get crispy in the oven.
