Mexican Stuffed Shells

Mexican Stuffed Shells


1 lb. ground beef
1 package low-sodium taco seasoning
4 oz. cream cheese
14-16 jumbo pasta shells
1.5 cup salsa
1 cup taco sauce (This is a smooth, tomato based sauce found in the Mexican section)
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup monterey jack cheese
1 onion
3 green onions (optional, for topping )
Sour cream (optional, for topping)

1.) Preheat oven to 350°.
2.) In a frying pan cook ground beef; add taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions (if using onion, chop and add here).  Add cream cheese, cover and simmer until cream cheese is melted. Blend well. Set aside and cool completely.
3.) 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.
4.) 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.
5.) After 30 minutes, add shredded cheese and bake for 10-15 more minutes, with the foil removed.

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

  2. Just make sure you put a jar of taco sauce in the bottom of whatever baking dish you're gonna use and top the shells with taco sauce then more mexican cheese. Doing just like the recipe will result in the shells just being stuffed shells with no type of sauce around them. It's like meatballs. As Americans we prefer meatballs and gravy not just meatballs no gravy. Take it from me a person who cooks like a trained chef and been doing it since 9yrs old do it like I said and you'll really like it.

  3. Confused, the recipe calls for salsa on the bottom of the baking dish as well as on top so not sure what you mean.

  4. This is a nice blog and I am truly impressed with the words which is described in it.Keep sharing.
