Mexican Stuffed Shells

Mexican Stuffed Shells

1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg taco seasoning
4 oz. cream cheese
14-16 jumbo shells
1.5 c. salsa
1 c. taco sauce
1 c. cheddar cheese
1 c. monterey cheese
3 green onions
sour cream

In a frying pan cook ground beef, add taco seasoning - cook according to directions on packet.  Add cream cheese - cover and simmer until cheese is melted.  Blend well.  While ground beef is cooking, cook pasta according to directions on package, drain.  Set shells in cooking sheet/cutting board and separate so that they don't stick together.

Pour salsa on bottom of 9x13 cake pan.  Stuff each shell with meat mixture and place in cake pan on salsa with open side up.  Cover shells with taco sauce.  Cover cake pan with foil and bake 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes add cheese and green onion (black olives if you wish).  Bake another 10-15 minutes uncovered.  Serve with sour cream

These food pictures are hard to take, friends!!  It's hard to believe that anyone can take pictures of food and make it look good.  These were yummy, though, and a new alternative to the plain ol' taco!

Pin It!
