Taco stuffed shells

a few months ago i was looking for some good recipes and copied and pasted from a bunch of different blogs (pre-pintrest)

but i finally made on this weekend and it was really YUM!

thanks pin there done that!

it was linked back to BlogChef.net

and here is their picture

here is what you need


1lb ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 4 once package cream cheese
12 large pasta shells
1 cup salsa
1 cup taco sauce
1 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)
1 cup Monterey jack cheese (shredded)
1 ½ cups tortilla chips (crushed)
3 green onions (chopped)
1 cup sour cream

Step 1: In a fry pan cook ground beef and add taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions. Add cream cheese cover and simmer until cheese is melted. Blend well. Set aside and allow to fully cool. While burger is cooking cook the pasta shells, drain and toss well with butter.

Step 2:  Pour salsa in the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.

Step 3: Stuff each shell with the meat mixture. Place the stuffed shells in the baking dish and cover the tops of the shells with taco sauce.

Step 4: Cover and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Step 5: After 30 minutes, uncover, and sprinkle crushed chips and shredded cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses on top.  Cook for about 15 more minutes. Serve with sour cream, additional salsa, black olives or whatever you think goes good with tacos!

I missed the right out of the oven shot,
but this is what it looked like after everyone took their share
and one happy and impressed husband!
as i said, it was way yum and i could have made more shells, there was some room left in the pan!

give it a try! gives a little spin to taco night!
