Good for a low fat meal. I used fat free sour cream too and then made up for it by sprinkling Monterey Jack Cheese over the top. I say use the cheese! My husband said it was a little rich. Read More

Very Tasty. A definite thumbs up from my boys! I doubled the recipe for my family and made a few changes/additions. First I sautéed the onions and added about cup each of mozza and cheddar to the crab/onion/sour cream mix. Then a sprinkle of cheese on top. I also made this with 10 minute enchilada sauce found on this site and home-made whole wheat flour tortillas. Read More

I sauteed the onion with a little green pepper to jazz it up. I also added some queso fresco into the mixture and some on top too. Instead of using red enchilada sauce I used mild green chili enchilada sauce both on top and in the mixture. This was fabulous and we all loved it. Very good base recipe I like to mix things up and it really worked well. Read More

First of all I forgot to microwave the filling so they came out a little cooler than I would have liked. Also the onions were too raw and would have benefited from some sauteing before being added to the mixture. But the flavor was pretty good for the finished product. Next time I'll try this with shredded cooked chicken. Read More

I usually don't give bad reviews and I rarely throw away a whole pan of food I've just prepared but we could not eat this. The sauce was good and I would try it again with chicken but the imitation crab was just too much. Sorry. Read More

This is a favorite in my house. We make this at least twice a month. I usually put a little less of the can of enchilada sauce in the crab meat mixture so I have more for pouring on top. Yummy! Read More
