    Very good. Nice presentation. Could use alittle something for more flavor, but I am not experienced enough to know what thatwould be.

    i used low fat sour cream and mayo and each shell was = to 2 weight watcher points plus. i added a bit of Cajun seasoning to spice it up a bit. Took it to work for pot luck and not lieftovers!

    I made this for a get together and it was okay. I am not sure if I would do it again. I had a hard time with the shells not holding up and did not taste like what I expected. Worth a try to make though, very simple.
