I received this recipe from an old friend for the family many years ago, and my family still loves it today. The crab makes it a wonderful change of pace from other weeknight fare. —Donna Roberts of Shumway, Illinois
This recipe is so quick and easy, and I always receive a ton of compliments. It quickly becomes a favorite of friends whenever I share the recipe. Modify the spiciness with the intensity of the salsa and the green chilis to suit your taste. —Kristi Black, Harrison Township, Michigan
With a toddler in the house, I look for foods that are a snap to make. Loaded with beef, cheese and a flavorful rice mix, these enchiladas come together with out any fuss. But they're so good that guests think I spent hours in the kitchen.
These creamy enchiladas are likely to be as popular at your house as they are at mine. I have many requests for this recipe. For weddings, I place the recipe in a nice casserole dish to give as a gift. —Kaylin DeVries, Magna, Utah
My husband took these restaurant-style enchiladas to work, and now the guys always ask for them. They’re rich and spicy, and you can prepare them with cooked chicken or beef, too. —Anna Rodriguez, Bethpage, New York
I like to top this wonderful meatless meal with lettuce and serve it with extra picante sauce. It's quick, easy, filled with fresh flavor and definitely satisfying! —Lesley Tragesser, Charleston, Missouri
After cooking ground beef in the microwave, I combine it with cans of bean dip and green chilies to fill flour tortillas. Cheddar cheese and black olives jazz up the prepared enchilada sauce that tops this swift Mexican specialty.

These enchiladas have more of a spaghetti sauce-tomato taste than typical Southwestern dishes. Loraine Meyer of Bend, Oregon relates, “I found this recipe many years ago and it quickly became a family favorite. It is even better when it is prepared one day and served the next.”
Since this recipe fills four 13-inch x 9-inch baking dishes, it's perfect for feeding a gang. I set out small bowls of shredded cheddar cheese, diced onions and diced tomatoes so folks can add their own garnishes.
