My hubby liked the stuffed shells I made so much that I thought I’d try a different variation. The mixture for the shells here is sort of a variation of what’s in my Quick And Easy Cheesy Taco Beef Rice Casserole Recipe or my Mexican Salsa Meat Pie.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1x 12 oz box jumbo pasta shells
  • 2x 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2x 1.5 oz taco seasoning packets
  • 4 cups salsa – divided into 2 cups and 2 cups
  • 6 oz shredded taco cheese – divided into 2 oz and 4 oz portions

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven.

Brown the ground beef.

Put softened cream cheese into a medium sized mixing bowl and mix well.

Add seasonings to cream cheese and mix well.

Drain ground beef and put into bowl.

Add 4 oz of the shredded cheese to the bowl and stir well.
