Someone posted this recipe to Facebook last week so I thought I'd give it a shot. We eat tacos almost every week at my house and this sounded like a nice change of pace.
Taco Stuffed Shells
1 lb ground beef (I used ground turkey)
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 4-oz pkg cream cheese
12 large pasta shells
1 cup salsa
1 cup taco sauce
2 cups shredded cheese (I used co-jack)
1 1/2 cups crushed tortilla chips
Any other taco "stuff" you like for serving - lettuce, pico, tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole, etc
Cook up meat and mix in taco seasoning as usual. Then add in cream cheese, cover and simmer until cheese is melted. Stir until combined. Let it cool while you cook the shells. After shells are cooked, drain and toss with a little butter.
Pour salsa into the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Stuff each with the meat mixture. Place shells on top of the salsa.
Put back into the oven for about 15 more minutes or until the cheese is melted and the shells are heated through.
Serve with whatever you normally like on your tacos.
