Crabmeat Enchiladas

"This is so good. A different twist on enchiladas. It has been around my house for a long time. It is adapted from a recipe in a 1979 edition of Seasoned with Sun."

    Very nice easy casserole to put together and get on the table. I cut recipe in half and used I can of crab for this recipe and made as written. I thickend up the sauce a little, and made it to my liking, as it was a little thin for me. I added some black olives to the mix, simply because I love them. I also used Mexican cheese instead of Monterey Jack... It turned out great. This is a dish I will be making again sometime soon. Thanks for sharing Paula! Linda

    I think the temp is way to low for enchiladas, usually bake on 350 or 375, I did 275 & to raw, so ended up over cooked when I turned up heat!! The sauce was a little dull. needed more spices in it!! I make chicken enchiladas, so I just converted to that sauce instead, like stated was very thin!!

    This dish was very disappointing. After reading the reviews our family thought it would be love at first bite, but after the first bite it went out to the cats(who by the wy wouldn't even touch it!). We will never make this recipe again.

    Paula these were very good, I added in 2 tablespons flour instead of one, used half and half cream in place if the milk, also I added in some Parmesan cheese to the sauce and sauteed some fresh garlic with the onions. These were different by very good. Thanks Paula!...Kitten:)
     

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
