Over The Border Shrimp Enchiladas

It's been awhile since I've shared any recipes! I have several I never posted about from a few months back, but mostly I've been in a bit of a slump and making a lot of old favorites...which is actually pretty rare for me, I like to make new things!! But anyway, a few months ago I found this wonderful shrimp enchiladas recipe in a magazine and decided that I would make it one day...and then I completely forgot which magazine it was in. I have to tell you, I am obsessed with cooking magazines! I have a collection of well over 100 of them! I was not having much luck finding it! So I decided to google it and thankfully came across this blog. Yay! Then after I posted the photos on Facebook, a friend asked if it was from the August Taste of Home, and sure enough, it was! So glad I was pointed in the right direction, there were several other cream cheese recipes in that issue and I LOVE cream cheese! Anyway, this recipe was very easy and so delicious! Enjoy!
