How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and oil a medium sized casserole dish. Bring the chicken broth to a simmer in a saucepan. Cut the shrimp into bite-sized pieces and cook in the broth for 3-4 minutes or until pink. Remove the shrimp to a bowl and save the broth. Cook the onion, garlic and mushrooms in the butter until soft (about 10 minutes.) Add the flour and stir well. Add 1 cup of the saved chicken broth and simmer until thickened. Stir in the shrimp, salt and pepper.
- Using a hand blender or food processor, blend the green chili sauce, chopped chilies and remaining 1 cup of saved chicken broth. Heat the sauce in a small skillet and keep warm.
- Steam the corn tortillas a few at a time in the microwave. Put them in a plastic food bag and heat for 10-15 seconds. Or until just softened. Or fry tortillas in hot oil just until softened and drain on paper towels.
- Dip each tortilla into the green chili sauce, fill with about ¼ c. of the shrimp and mushroom mixture. Roll and place seam side down in a lightly oiled casserole. When all the tortillas have been rolled, pour the remaining sauce on top. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 25 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped tomatoes and serve.
