    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.

      These were a hit at my Mexican fiesta party this weekend. I doubled the recipe, added crushed chips as a topping, and these were devoured! Simple to put together and really good. Thanks GailAnn for another keeper. Made for ZWT8 Mexico/Tex Mex.
