Crawfish (or Crayfish) Enchiladas

Submitted by: PENNIF

Introduction

This came from Cooking Light magazine, but I left out some ingredients and changed others a little. I didn't care too much for all that garlic, so unless you really like garlic, you might want to go easy on it. It can be overpowering. I don't like sour cream so I left that out. I included it in the ingredients for everyone else, though, so that way you still know what the fat/calorie content is. It saved a little bit of fat and calories for me.
