{Mexican Shells}

This is So yummy your going to love it!!  It's making me hungry just thinking about it! hee!

We love Mexican food and I am always trying to find new ways to make it.

As I was making the traditional past shells one day, it occurred to me...why not do Mexican shells?!

ding, ding, ding!! : D

So I tried it and now it is a family favorite!

Although..... it came as no surprise that it had been made before....of course

However, it hasn't been made with my ingredients. Ha!

Recipe follows:

pasta shells
1lb ground beef
pkg taco seasoning
1cup frozen pepper and onion blend/ or you could add small onion
1can Campbell's fiesta cheese
1can diced tomatoes/ I used fire roasted or you can use rotel
1can tomato sauce
1pkg of shredded cheese

mix cheese with taco meat, stuff with cooked shells, mix diced tomatoes and sauce, add a layer of sauce to bottom of pan (9x13), then add taco shells, top with cheese, bake @ 350 for 30min

top with your favorite toppings...
then get ready to fall in love... : D!!

I discovered this recipe awhile back...and IT IS DELISH!!! Accept ours was a bit different! It was 1large jar of salsa put through a blender with 1/4 C. Ketchup for the sauce. Hamburger mixed with taco seasoning and 1 pkg. Cream cheese...then when baking...bake covered for 20 min. then remove add your cheese and crushed up tortilla chips...bake an addtl 10 min.!!
Your way I'm sure is just as DELISH!! Maybe we could take the 2 versions and combine them?! I bet THAT would be good!! Have a good DAY!
