Throwback Thursday: Enchiladas Cancun {Easy Cheesy Seafood Fiesta!}

Happy Thursday, friends!  Here's a throwback to a recipe, plus a sweet little story from 1998 when my husband first made this creation of his for me! 

Enchiladas Cancun {Easy Cheesy Seafood Fiesta!}
Originally published here on February 26, 2013

In the summer of 1998, my husband (then handsome boyfriend), created this scrumptious recipe and asked to cook for me. We were young and in love, which explains why I was shockingly willing to try this dish, although I normally wouldn't have eaten seafood if someone paid me. To my surprise, it was love at first bite! That's when I knew I must marry this culinary genius. Ok, maybe it also had something to do with how I fit perfectly in his arms, his love for the Lord, and clear adoration of lit'l ol' me, but these mouthwatering enchiladas showed me that this boy could make staying at home feel like a delicious vacation on a plate!

Easy Cheesy Seafood Fiesta Time!

Just 5 Ingredients:

12 ounces of Mexican Cheese 

Two cans of Enchilada Sauce 

10 Flour Tortillas 

8-12 ounces of your preference of: Crab, Shrimp, or even Imitation Crab 

Parsley Flakes

Steps to Creating a Taste Bud Fiesta:

1.  Preheat oven at 400 degrees.

2.  In a large bowl combine cheese, your choice of seafood, one and a half cans of enchilada sauce (reserving half a can to top enchiladas with). 

 3.  Spray 9x13 glass dish with nonstick cooking spray. 


 5.  Wrap filled tortilla and place into prepared 9x13 dish, seam side down. Repeat with each of the remaining tortillas and filling. 

6.  Pour remaining half a can of enchilada sauce over the top of enchiladas. 

7.  Sprinkle with parsley flakes. 

8.  Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes. 

9.  Enjoy! ;)
