Shrimp and Cheese Enchiladas

Thanks to my dear friend, relative, and ya-ya sister
Lori Lahren-Lotero (may she rest in peace!) for
this  fantastic recipe!

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup minced onion
One 4-ounce can of diced green chiles or
1 medium jalapeno, diced
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pinch white pepper
Pinch cayenne pepper - or to taste
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup sour cream 
2 tablespoons butter
1 pound medium shrimp,
peeled and deveined
1 cup chopped green onions
4 plum tomatoes, chopped
12 burrito-size (10-inch) flour tortillas
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Make sauce: Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium hear; add
peppers, onion, jalapeno, garlic and oregano. Cook until vegetables are softened, 5 minutes. Add salt and peppers. Pour in cream and broth.
Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes. Stir in cheese until
melted. Remove from heat; add sour cream. (Makes 2 1/2 cups.)
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter in a large skillet over high heat;
add shrimp and 1/2 cup green onions. Cook, stirring frequently until shrimp are just pink, 2 minutes. Stir in half of tomatoes and half of cream sauce.
Spoon scant 1/3 cup shrimp mixture evenly across center of each tortilla;
roll up. Place seam side down in a 13-by-9-inch baking dish. Spoon the remaining sauce over enchiladas; cover with foil and bake 30 to 35 minutes until heated through. Uncover and sprinkle with cheese, remaining onions
and tomatoes. Bake (uncovered) just until cheese melts, 5 minutes more.
Makes 6 servings.
