This easy seafood dish is the perfect way to save time in the kitchen without sacrificing taste and quality!

If you like enchiladas and shrimp, you'll  LOVE these 15-minute shrimp enchiladas with chipotle sauce. The smokiness of the chipotle sauce pairs wonderfully with the shrimp. I used a half cup of chipotles in adobo, but you can reduce or increase the amount based on how much heat you want.

This is one of those super-easy weeknight meals that produces a gourmet plate of food in just a few minutes. It's a no-fuss dish you can make with just a few kitchen essentials and ingredients you probably have in your pantry.

You can use regular tortilla, but I prefer whole wheat tortillas, not only for their nutritional value but also because they taste great!
