The other day I mentioned how I was working on some recipes and all I could think about were Pioneer Woman’s Cinnamon Rolls.
Well….. I was also thinking about crab and shrimp.  Not quite sure how cinnamon rolls, crab and shrimp can run through my head in the same thoughts but they did.
In fact I made three recipes using these ingredients and decided that I should probably narrow it down to just two so that you don’t get an overload this month.  I know that some of you don’t like seafood but don’t get scared by this recipe just simply substitute it for cooked chicken or fajita meat.
We can’t get enough of casserole dishes.  Especially when you come home from a hard day at work and don’t want to do anything including cook.  So, now you can pour yourself a glass of wine or pop open a beer and get this reheated and enjoy your night!

  1. I have the ingredients to make this! Going to give it a shot tonight and save us a shopping trip.

  2. This tastes much better than it looked. When I cut the first piece I was worried that the tortillas looked soggy. Fortunately, my husband loved it and we will be making it again!
