    Farmer's Daughter's Note:

    I got this originally from my ex-husband and modified it a bit by adding the crab. You could also substitute shrimp, chicken, beef, whatever suits your fancy.

    1. 1
      You will need 3 large bowls and at least 1 9"x13" baking dish.
    2. 2
      Spray the baking dish with PAM.
    3. 3
      In the first bowl, mix the cheeses.
    4. 4
      In the second bowl, put the shredded crabmeat.
    5. 5
      In the third bowl, mix the tomato soups, water, sauce and hot sauce. Open the packages of tortillas and dump them all into the sauce bowl.
    6. 6
      Now we get messy. Take the first tortilla out of the bowl, making sure both sides are coated with sauce. Place in baking dish. Put some cheese then some crab in the middle and roll up. Repeat this process with all the tortillas.
    7. 7
      When you are finished, pour the remaining sauce over top. Sprinkle on the black olives and remaining cheese.
    8. 8
      Bake at 450 for 1/2 hour. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving (so the cheese dosen't run all over the place). Serve with sour cream, guac, salsa, etc. This will serve a very hungry family of 5 with plenty of leftovers!

      We really wanted to like these, and a couple of my kids did, but the combination just didn't work for most of us. I might try it again with beef or chicken, but the combination of crab and tomato just didn't sit well. It's a very simple meal to put together and looked great when cooked and served.

      Wow, is this ever delicious! I never would have thought to put crab in enchiladas, but I'll never turn back now :) 30 minutes was too long for my oven - the cheese burned on the first batch. But I baked the 2nd batch just over 20 minutes and it was perfect. Also, I used a touch less cheese than called for, in an attempt to cut some calories. Thanks for posting this recipe!!
