I enjoyed trying this recipe last night. It is quick and easy, and very versitile. I used two 6oz bags of cooked salad shrimp, and did add a 6oz can of white crab meat drained. I also added a...

Quick for sure, but missing a great deal in flavor complexity, perhaps a creamy homemade sauce. The enchilada sauce on its own just wasn’t enough to carry this. I pretty much just tasted enchil...

My family loved this recipe. I doubled the "filling" since I have teenagers and they love to eat. I couldn't find green enchilada sauce at the store I went to so I got regular enchilada sauce a...

I was looking for something to do with pre-cooked shrimp that I bought by accident. This was awesome! Hubby says make again, anytime. I didn't have cilantro, so used parsley, and used lemon j...

The shrimp was a fun change from regular enchiladas. I used red sauce instead of green and they still turned out good.

I also thought these would be bland, but they had a lot of flavor. I used 12 oz small shrimp and 1 can crab meat. I got 4 small enchiladas out of it.

very tasty. i used corn tortillas, canned red enchilada sauce, otherwise kept rest of recipe the same. quick to make. i would say this is for 4 people max, maybe double it for 6 people.

Easy enough & a nice change from chicken enchilada's. I've made this 2 times now (1st time I messed up on). Wouldn't change a thing except maybe use a little less green chile enchilada sauce dep...

Really was easy and quite good but I also think it needs “ tarting up”. Perhaps adding some green peppers.
