Mexican Stuffed Shells


1 lb. ground beef

1 package taco seasoning

4 ounces cream cheese

14-16 jumbo pasta shells

1 bottle taco sauce

1 cup cheddar cheese

1 cup Monterey jack cheese


Sour cream

Green onions

Black olives


1. Cook ground beef in a frying pan; 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.

2. 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.

3. Preheat oven to 350° F. Pour taco sauce on bottom of 9×13-inch baking dish. Stuff each shell with the meat mixture. Place shells in pan open side up. Cover shells with taco sauce. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.

4. After 30 minutes, add shredded cheese and bake for 10-15 minutes with the foil removed. Top with any condiments you like (green onions, black olives, etc.) Serve with sour cream and/or salsa.
