Mexican Stuffed Shells


I saw this recipe on pinterest, and knew I had to try it! These shells were amazing! You won't be disappointed if you try them!!




Mexican Stuffed Shells

 Ingredients:
1 lb. ground beef
1 package taco seasoning (or even better use this Taco Seasoning found here!)
4 oz. cream cheese (I used the lite cream cheese)
14-16 jumbo pasta shells
1.5 cup salsa
1 cup taco sauce (This is a smooth, tomato based sauce found in the Mexican section) or I used this recipe
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup monterey jack cheese
3 green onions
Sour cream
Lettuce
Tomatoes

Preheat oven to 350°.
In a frying pan cook ground beef; add taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions.  Add cream cheese, cover and simmer until cheese is melted. Blend well. Set aside and cool completely.

While ground beef is cooking, cook the pasta shells according to directions; drain. Set shells out individually on cutting board/baking sheet so that they don’t stick together.

Pour salsa on bottom of 9×13 baking dish.  Stuff each shell with the meat mixture. Place shells in 9×13 pan open side up. Cover shells with taco sauce.  Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, add shredded cheese and bake for 10-15 more minutes, with the foil removed.  Top with any condiments you’d like (green onions, black olives, etc.)

Serve with sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, or whatever else you'd like to put on it! Enjoy!!
