More About This Recipe

  • We challenged Tablespoon bloggers to choose a classic recipe from the "Heirloom Recipes and New Twist" section of the brand new Betty Crocker Cookbook and throw down their own spin to share with you. Today's twist: Enchilada Manicotti, TheFoodInMyBeard's version of Betty's classic Cheese Enchilada recipe. It’s so fun to join all the Tablespoon bloggers this week with recipes from the Betty Crocker “Big Red” cookbook. I choose one of my all time favorite dishes to add a twist to—enchiladas. For the twist, I decided to merge the enchiladas with another childhood favorite, manicotti. I actually followed the recipe from the book pretty closely, adding a few things for personal preference, and a few things to make the enchiladas more manicotti-like. These enchilada manicotti came out great. My mom had a version of the cookbook from 2001, and also from 1978, so I had a lot of fun comparing the books and checking out the retro recipes!
