Taco Stuffed Shells

I made these for supper last night and I got 5 thumbs up and since there are only 5 of us, I'd say that was pretty good.

I admit there just wasn't getting a good picture as it is kind of an ugly dish! LOL

1 1/4lbs of ground beef or turkey
4oz of cream cheese
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 box jumbo shells
2 TBS butter, melted
2 cup shredded cheese (Use Mexican cheese blend if you got it!)
1 1/2 c. crushed tortilla chips
sour cream
Sauce: I mixed 1 can of tomato sauce and about 1 cup of salsa together and it was really good


1. In a large skillet, brown meat until no longer pink, drain. Add cream cheese, salt, and chili powder. Mix well and simmer for 5 minutes.

2. Meanwhile cook your shells until al dente. Toss cooked shells with butter.

3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

4. Fill shells with beef mixture and arrange in a 9 x 13 pan. You may need another small one to fit them all in. Pour sauce over shells. Cover with foil and bake for 15 mins.

5. Remove dish from oven and top with cheese and tortilla chips, return dish to oven to cook for 15 more minutes.

6. Top with sour cream and onions. Serve!



  1. Good idea! Hey, you have done really cute stuff with this blog! Good job! You really could make a few bucks on the side doing blog design!

  2. This looks DELICIOUS - and often the best dishes look messy in photos!

  3. PS I just printed this one out.

  4. YUM! This one's going on the meal plan STAT!


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
