Mexican Stuff Shells

Yet another recipe that I found and pinned on Pinterest. I don't know about you guys but I LOVE Mexican food so this was definitely a must try for me. Fiance also loves Mexican food so that added to the excitement. I was kind of skeptical about some of the ingredients (cream cheese in my Mexican food? eh) but it was definitely worth the try. Another plus was that it took like no time to cook. It is always wonderful to try something new.
Mexican Stuffed Shells
1 lb. ground beef
Taco Seasoning or even just use the little taco seasoning packets
4 oz. cream cheese (I did 2.5 oz since I was soo skeptical about the cream cheese)
16 jumbo pasta shells
1.5 cup salsa
1 cup taco sauce (can be found in the Mexican aisle of the grocery store, but I literally just used tomato sauce and added onion powder and garlic powder to it)
1 cup cheddar cheese
green onion or cilantro for garnishing

Preheat oven to 350°.

In a frying pan cook ground beef; add taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions. Add cream cheese and simmer until cheese is melted. Set aside and cool completely.

While ground beef is cooking, cook the pasta shells and drain. Set shells out individually on baking sheet so that they don’t stick together.

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.

After 30 minutes, add shredded cheese and bake for 10-15 more minutes, with the foil removed.
