I saw these on Pinterest and had to try them. I like stuffed shells. I like tacos. Why not some taco stuffed shells?
1lb. Lean meat
1 envelope of taco seasoning
4 oz. cream cheese, cubed
Jumbo pasta shells, cooked
1 cup salsa
1 cup taco sauce
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded jack cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brown meat in a skillet over medium heat. Add taco seasoning and mix well. Add cubed cream cheese to skillet and cover. Stir occasionally until cream cheese is melted and blended. Remove from the heat and cool. Mix 1/2 cup of cheddar and 1/2 cup of jack cheese to meat.
In a 9 x 13 baking dish spread the salsa to coat the bottom of the dish.
Stuff shells with meat mixture and lay in baking dish.
Top shells with taco sauce and remaining cheese.
Cover with foil (I usually spray mine with Pam so the cheese doesn't stick) and bake for about 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Serve with your fave taco toppings- sour cream, guacamole, and tomatoes to name a few.
I served mine with some scrumptious Firehouse cornbread.
