Creamy and Luscious Lobster Enchilada
By Jim Bailey, a.ka. "The Yankee Chef"

I would like to kick-start this crustacean season by giving you a beautifully
flavored, cheesy and spicy, crunchy and tangy, creamy and ... ahhh, enough
already. This is a keeper.

Jalapeno Cream Sauce, recipe below
2 cups chopped lobster meat
3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
1 tomato, seeded and diced
1 small green bell pepper, diced small
2 cups whole kernel corn
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons chopped, fresh cilantro
1/4 teaspoon marjoram
6 (8-inch) tortillas

Make Jalapeno Cream Sauce. Stir lobster, half the cheese, tomato, bell pepper,
corn, lemon juice, cilantro and marjoram into warm Lemon-Jalapeno Sauce: set

Preheat broiler and position rack at least 3 inches from heat source. Fill each
tortilla with an even amount of the lobster mixture, roll and place in a broiler
pan seam-side down. Repeat with all tortilla shells.

Evenly spread remaining cheese over the tops of the rolled up tortillas and broil
2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the exposed tortillas are crispy.
Remove and enjoy hot.

Jalapeno Cream Sauce
2 teaspoons oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic in oil
1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno pepper
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
3 cups vegetable broth
2 cups heavy cream

In a large skillet, or deep saucepan, add oil, garlic, jalapeno and green onions
and cook over medium heat 2 minutes. Increase temperature to medium-high.
Add vegetable broth and continue cooking until broth is reduced by half, about
8-10 minutes. Add cream and reduce to half once again, about 5-6 minutes.
Remove from heat.
