  • Lay tortillas on a flat surface. In the middle of each tortilla place equal amounts of cheese, crab, and shrimp. Set aside some cheese to sprinkle on top of the tortillas. Roll the tortillas to form enchiladas. Arrange side by side in a 9x13 inch baking pan.

  • Pour green enchilada sauce over all of the enchiladas; the green sauce should cover the enchiladas completely. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the enchiladas.

  • Cover, and bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove cover, and continue baking 15 minutes. Top enchiladas with sour cream and green onions to serve.

Muy delicioso! Whenever we serve this, our friends ask for the recipe. We modified it a bit by increasing the following; 16 ounces of cheese, 3 cans of crab meat, 1 1/2 lbs. of shrimp, and adding: 1/2 can green chiles, 1 small can chopped black olives. We mix the 1/2 of the cheese along with the crab, shrimp, chiles and olives for the filling. Wonderful tasting!! Read More

This was pretty good but not great. I can of crabmeat is definitely not enough. I hate to say it but I think using the fake crabmeat would work better because it is in large pieces. I couldn't find green enchilada sauce and used red. I also mixed in the green onions w/the shrimp crab and cheese. My fiance is not a seafood fan but I am. He said this was a little below average.

I added bay scallops to the seafood & I did saute them all in olive oil w/ garlic & onions as suggested by many reviewers. I also added a tsp. of cumin to the seafood mix & loved the flavor it added...I think next time I might add another teaspoon. The green enchilada sauce MADE this recipe...I can't imagine it w/ red. After baking the second time, I topped the enchiladas off w/ a bit of mexican blend cheeses & stuck it under the broiler for a few minutes to add visual appeal. Then I topped each enchilada w/ a tbp sized dollop of sour cream (they really don't need any more than that) & sprinkled them w/ fresh, chopped cilantro. These were really, really good but I think white corn tortillas would make a better wrap for them. They'd hold up better to cooking under the sauce. Served them w/ watermelon margaritas, a southwestern blend of mixed veggies (corn, black beans, onions, poblanos etc), chips & hot sauce & sopapillas for dessert. Fantastic dinner...thanks Lisa!

This was an excellent dish. I used 8 oz. imitation crabmeat and 4 oz. baby shrimp. I mixed in a little fat free sour cream a diced tomato and some of the green onions as well as a jack/cheddar mexican cheese mix and it tasted wonderful. One of the easiest dishes and it got rave reviews!!! I will make it again and again. Thank you Lisa! Read More

This was delicious. Followed previous advice and chopped the shrimp and added cream cheese. I also used two cans of enchilada sauce. I put a small amount on the bottom of the pan which helped keep the enchiladas from sticking and I poured a spoonful over the crab/shrimp mixture before rolling. The results were wonderful. FYI: The mixture nicely filled ten flour tortillas had I used all twelve they would not have fit in the suggested pan. Read More

these were so awesome!! I can't believe how good these tasted with such a simple recipe. The end result was a little mushy though I think next time I'll add the enchilada sauce a little later probably after baking the enchiladas for ten or fifteen minutes first and making the outsides a little crispy so that they wont soak in as much of the sauce. Other than that these were great and I will definately make them again! Read More

Very big hit! Saute the shrimp with olive oil garlic and onions first to give them more flavor medium green enchilada sauce was a little mild might use hot next time. Read More

This was fantastic and so easy to make. The hardest part was finding the green chili sauce. But it was well worth the hunt! I added sauteed onion garlic chopped green and red peppers to the shrimp and crab mix. I can't wait to make it again. Read More
