12 6" Corn Tortillas
1/2 Cup of Vegetable Oil
1/2 Lb of Cotija Cheese
4oz Margerine
2 Roma Tomatoes
1 Serrano Pepper
2 TSpoon Lime Juice
1 Lb Peeled/Deveined Shrimp
2 TSpoon of Minced Garlic
1/2 Lb Pepper Jack Cheese
1/2 Lb Swiss Cheese
Black Pepper
1/2 Cup Whole Milk
Cooking Instructions:
In a fry pan, melt the margerine and add the garlic, let flavors mix and add shrimp and Lime Juice. Salt and Pepper to taste. Once Shrimp is pink, remove pan from flame and set aside.

Heat up oil in another pan, once hot (sprinkle salt to check) pass the tortillas for 2 to 3 seconds and place over a paper towel. Before they cool down, place some cotija cheese crushed to make crums, and a few shrimps and then roll the tortillas to make then look like cigars.

In a glass (heat resistant) container, place the pepper jack and swiss cheeses, diced tomatoes and serrano pepper and milk, melt everything in the microwave oven and stir.
Serving Suggestions:
In an oval plate, serve two or three enchiladas in the middle, accompained by rice and beans. Put some shimps on top of the enchiladas and bath them with the melted cheese. Decorate with choped cilantro or red pepper juliannes.
Additional Comments:
This dish goes well with a Dos Equis Lager Mexican Beer of a Glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

If you prefer, you can substitute cotija cheese for the melted cheese.
