Creamy Seafood Enchiladas Recipe

Publisher Photo
Two types of seafood and a flavorful sauce make these enchiladas outstanding. I prepared them for an annual fund raiser, where they're always in demand. Spice up the recipe to your taste by adding more green chilies and salsa.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 28, 2013

Really good! I substituted bay scallops for half of the shrimp, and used fresh cilantro because I find that the dried does not have much flavor. I served Mexican rice and refried beans alongside. Next time I will put more salsa into the sauce mixture, and might substitute roasted fresh jalapenos for the canned. This makes a lot. We're going to be having it for lunch for at least a couple of days.

My family rates recipes from 1 to 5 but reserves a 5+ rating for those dishes they LOVE. This one got a 5+!

MY REVIEW

Delicious and easy. I have made this several times. I also make this without the seafood and with extra shredded cheese for my vegetarian son... Per another reviewer's suggestion, the last two times I have made this with ricotta rather than cottage cheese, which makes this dish even easier to prepare, no blender required... In future I think I will double the amount of sauce I make for this dish...

MY REVIEW

This was excellent. Made it while in Maine on a family vacation. I used Maine Crab & Maine Shrimp. I put cilantro in the sauce, but not in the filling. I also used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese... much creamier and smoother than blended cottage cheese. There were 8 of us, so I doubled the recipe, used burrito size tortillas and ended up with 14 enchiladas. Everyone loved it!!
