Mexican Stuffed Shells
1/2 of meat/bean mixture (see below)
20ish jumbo shells cooked al dente
1 cup salsa
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup taco sauce
1 cup cheddar cheese
Put 1/2 of the meat/bean mixture in a skillet and add cream cheese. Heat until cheese is melted. Remove from heat.
Pour salsa on bottom of 9×13 baking dish. Stuff each shell with the meat mixture (about 2-3 TBSP per shell). Place shells in 9×13 pan open side up. Cover shells with taco sauce. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
(I use 1/2 of this for the above recipe and the other 1/2 for serving on top of rice for lunches)
1 lb ground beef
1 15 oz can black beans
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp onion powder
Cook ground beef until done. Drain any grease.
Return ground beef to pan and add the beans and spices. Mix well.
