Top Review by KingJackQueen

I worked at Chi-Chi's for 16 years. Crab was the imitation sticks that you see in the store. White sauce came in a dry packet that we added lobster base to along with cooking sherrie and water. Mixed the sauce with the crab and monterey jack prior to rolling enchiladas. Covered with sauce and a sprinkling of more jack cheese. When they came out of the oven we would top with paprika. Hope this helps. KJQ
