Stacked Seafood Enchiladas

Back in Seattle, we used to have seafood enchiladas at a Mexican restaurant called Cactus. They were stacked horizontally instead of rolled. Kind of like an enchilada lasagna. For a Mexican kick one evening, I cooked up our own version of stacked seafood enchiladas (even if they weren't all that pretty). Since it was a weeknight, we started with a Frontera green chile enchilada sauce packet from the grocery store as our enchilada base.


Stuffed with both scallops and calamari this was a cheesy, seafood, green chile adventure!
