this was an excellent recipe ~ i added a bit more half and half to make the sauce a little thicker ( and left out the walnuts :), but it was great, very easy to make as well.

These were excellent, and very easy to make. I used canned crab and flour tortillas (personal preference). My grocery was out of fresh cilantro, but I'd use it if I could get it. However, this made two 13x9 inch pans, and I had to double the sauce. Next time I'll make half the filling recipe.

Whoo-Hoo-Hooooo!!! These enchiladas were divine. Thanks 1Steve. The only alteration was to use flour tortillas and I warmed them with a quick spin in the microwave. The filling was good and I loved the crunch of the toasted walnuts. The sauce was very rich and creamy--just as expected. Lots of cheese, too, which we adore. Thanks for sharing this 10-star winner.
