Taco Stuffed Shells

Here is another great recipe from Mmm Cafe. I made these for dinner on Sunday night. Brad really enjoyed it. To be completely honest, I don't know that I will make these again. This is totally a personal issue. Growing up I think we had "Tacos" one to many times and so now anything with taco flavor or seasoning just doesn't sound or taste overly great to me. I am not a big fan of Mexican food either. That being said, I can appreciate this recipe for what it is. If you like Mexican food and more specifically Tacos then you will love this recipe. It's just not for me.

Taco Stuffed Shells
From: Blog Chef

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 1/2 cups mexican blend shredded cheese
1 ½ cups tortilla chips (crushed)
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 slightly cool. While burger is cooking cook the pasta shells, drain.
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 with foil 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 15 additional minutes. Serve with sour cream, additional salsa, and anything else that you like to serve with tacos.
