Reviews for Enchilada Stuffed Shells
"I enjoyed this a lot. I did not stuff shells, but used medium shells and made a bake out of this. Also I don't like refried beans so I just eliminated them. Was absolutely delicious, and I can't wait to eat it for leftovers this week. :)"
"I have been experimenting with many different types of stuffed shells and this one is by far the best I have tried! I make the recipe as is and add sour cream and mild taco sauce as a topping."
"I also do add sauce to the bottom and cover the shells on top."
"I make this all the time. I always make extras and eat them the next day. I love them, love them. I also buy progresso recipe starters cheese and make a queso batch! these are amazing!!"
"This was awesome! No leftovers, and I made extra shells! LOL! I did pour some sauce on the bottom of the casserole dish, and it helped a lot. I personally will add addsome extra sauce over the sheels, because I like things saucy, or serve it on the side. Made it with Red Beans and rice and it was a great meal!"
"This was ok - I neither loved it or hated it. My shells also got a little hard on the bottom - spreading a little sauce on the bottom of the baking pan might prevent that. I thought they tasted better as leftovers."
"I made this for my "food picky" boyfriend and he loved it! I wasn't sure how it was going to taste with turkey, but ended up turning out really good. I also put my own twist to the refriend beans and added 2 tbs of margarine, 1/2 tsp of Franks Hot Sauce and a few squirts of peppered vinegar, and it came out Awesome!!! Thanks Taste of Home! :)"
"I made this recipe with green enchilada sauce instead of the red since I have a toddler who would be eating this. Also, I used montery jack cheese instead of the cheddar since that's what I had on hand. The pasta shells got hard on the bottom when I baked them and I'm not sure why that happened. Definitely a good & easy recipe. I served it with a southwestern garden salad."
"Very simple to make. Made them for a dinner party for my girlfriends. They all loved it and 4 of them have since asked for the recipe to make it themselves!"
"This is one of my favorites! The combination of spices is just right. Sometimes I use beef, it depends on what I have on hand at the moment. I don't bother placing the beans in separately from the meat, I stir the beans right into the meat. It's a little quicker and less messy doing it this way. This recipe is delicious, I highly recommend it!"
"Excellent dish, my whole family loves it! We tend to like dishes with a little more flavor, though, and so I add a package of my favorite taco seasoning to the turkey instead of the seasonings in the recipe. I also add some hot picante sauce to the refried beans to make them a little spicier and easier to spoon into the shells."
"This was great recipe that even my picky eaters loved! I would definitely make again, though not too soon b/c stuffing the shells is kind of a pain, but great recipe!"
"i made this for my parents, and my foods class. they abosulutly loved it. this was so easy to make and it was fun. im glad i found this recipe!!!!SLea"
