First roast some shrimp. Lay them out on a baking sheet, toss them with some olive oil, salt and pepper and then pop them into the oven for about 6-8 minutes. Chop into small pieces. Now make the jalapeno cream sauce: melt some butter whisk in the flour, stir in the broth stir in sour cream stir in the jalapeños, garlic powder, salt and pepper. throwing in some fresh cilantro Now we’ll make the shrimp filling. Let’s first saute some garlic and onion. Then comes the rest of the ingredients – cabbage, carrot, spinach, chipotle pepper, oregano and cayenne. You want to saute it just until the spinach begins to wilt. Now we’ll throw the chopped up shrimp back to the pot… Then we’ll wrap them up in each of the tortillas, top it off with the creamy goodness and bake it until it gets nice and golden, about 20 minutes. Once it comes out of the oven, top these babies off with some more of that jalapeño cream sauce – you wouldn’t want that to go to waste!
