Enchiladas Stuffed Shells

A taste of Mexico packaged up in tender pasta shells and baked under a blanket of cheese. Need we say more about this recipe? We could add that these enchilada stuffed shells are as fun to eat as they are to prepare and would make for a real family feast served with mounds of tortilla chips, guacamole and sour cream.
