    A beloved favorite recipe that's been around awhile. While the crushed tortilla chips are optional, I personally love the crunch.

      These are so easy to whip up and have great flavor!! DH usually makes a funny face when I say enchiladas, but when I said it is similar but with pasta he was excited and this did not dissapoint!. I used Pace Picante mild salsa and a mild taco sauce. I didn't measure the cheese, just sprinkled on what I thought was a good amount. I did get 16 shells from the meat filling and looking forward to leftovers!! Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #60.

      This recipe is awesome. I substituted shredded chicken breast for the ground meat. My family loves it.

      I found this recipe on Pinterest and then came and dug it up here on Food.com... these were a huge hit! I threw in a little chorizo that I had with the ground beef just to use it up. I followed the recipe exactly except that I just threw the cheese on top and baked uncovered at 350 for 30 or so minutes. I made it for us and for a friend who just had surgery and her family loved it too!
