Seafood Enchiladas

2 medium white onions, coarsely chopped
1 can diced green chiles, (7 ounce)
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 pound crabmeat
1 pound tiny shrimp
1 cup walnut halves, toasted
1 can medium pitted ripe olives, (12 ounce) drained and halved
1 pound Monterey jack cheese, shredded
1 pound Cheddar cheese, shredded
vegetable oil
16 corn tortillas
2 cups half and half
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic salt

shredded Cheddar cheese
sliced pimentos
avocado slices
sliced black olives

In large skillet, saute onions and chiles in butter until onions
are transparent. Remove from heat and add crab, shrimp, walnuts,
and olives. Combine cheeses. Set aside 1 1/2 cups of the cheese
for top of casserole. Stir remaining cheese into seafood mixture.

In skillet just large enough to hold tortillas, hear 1/4 inch oil.
Fry tortillas, one a time, just long enough to soften, about 30
seconds. Drain on paper towels. Fill each tortilla with seafood
filling, roll up and place seam side down in large, greased baking
dish. Can be prepared in advance and refrigerated or frozen.
Defrost before proceeding.

In medium saucepan, combine half and half, sour cream, butter,
oregano and garlic salt. Stir frequently over medium heat until
lukewarm and well blended. Pour over enchiladas. Sprinkle enchiladas
with reserved cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until
bubbly. Garnish with additional shredded cheese, pimento, avocados
and olives.

Reviewer: Katie from San Francisco, CA
Delicious - better than anything you can get in a restaurant. I used better quality shrimp (larger). Didn't fry tortillas, who needs the extra oil woth all that cheese. Also added chopped red pepper to the saute with onions and chiles for more veggie content and color. Everyone loves them! I take them to first-time parents so they don't have to cook. Also, get the Phillips brand canned crab from Costco. High quality lump for roughly $14, can't beat the flavor or price and no shell.
