Mexican Stuffed Shells

These are so good! Everyone loved them and he left overs went fast the next day!

I forgot to take a picture so I will have to get one next time make it which i have a feeling will be soon. I made this with my imitation red lobster biscuits which I will post later.

I adapted my recipe from The Way to His Heart.

Mexican Stuffed Shells

1 lb. ground beef
1 package Taco seasoning
4 oz. cream cheese
24-32 jumbo pasta shells***
1.5 cup salsa
1 cup taco sauce
2 cups Mexican blend cheese
3 green onions (optional)
Sour cream

***The original recipe calls out 14-16 but I had a lot of meat left over after that and more room in my pan so i made more.

Preheat oven to 350°.

In a frying pan cook ground beef; add taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions (or back of can).  Add cream cheese, cover and simmer until cheese is melted stirring occasionally until well blended. 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 with green onions if wanted.

Serve with Sour Cream.
