Over-the-border shrimp enchiladas

Another yummy recipe from Kae Cee. I didn't really like them reheated the next day (shrimp never seems to reheat well) so make them on a night when you've got guests to eat up the leftovers.

1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
8 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
1 1/2 cups chunky salsa
1 1/2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese

In a large skillet, saute onion in oil until tender. Add the shrimp, green chilies, chili powder, salt, cumin and pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink. Stir in cream cheese until melted.

Place 1/3 cup shrimp mixture down the center of each tortilla. Roll up and place seam side down in greased 13x9 inch baking dish. Pour salsa over the top; sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
