Recipe: Mexican Stuffed Shells



1 lb. ground beef

1 package taco seasoning

4-oz. cream cheese

14-16 jumbo pasta shells

1-1/2 cup salsa

1 cup taco sauce (found in the Mexican section of a grocery store)

1 cup cheddar cheese

1 cup monterey jack cheese

3 green onions

Sour cream



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 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 x 13-inch baking dish.

Stuff each shell with the meat mixture. Place shells in 9 x 13-inch 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 more minutes with the foil removed.

Top with any condiments you’d like (ex. green onions, black olives, etc). Serve with sour cream and/or more salsa.

I'm a mom to an amazing little girl and have another little one on the way. I live in Upstate New York with my fiance and daughter, 2 big, crazy dogs and a 3-legged cat (who has an attitude). I hate know-it-alls, Lindsay Lohan and socks with holes in them. I always seem to get myself into trouble (which entertains my fiance to no end), but I try hard to be a good parent. Also, I occasionally work on scrapbooking the fifty billion pictures I've taken of my kid. And I like ice cream. The end.
