6 0z cream cheese
1 t salt
1 t chili powder
18 jumbo pasta shells
2 T butter
1 cup taco sauce (I used Taco Bell Mild)

1/2 cup chopped onions
1 cup crushed tortilla chips
sour cream to top

Boil your pasta shells, rinse and toss in butter, set aside. In skillet brown ground beef with the onion, add cream cheese, salt and chili powder to ground beef. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fill pasta shells with beef mixture arrange in baking dish. Pour taco sauce over top and cover with tinfoil. Bake for 15 minutes. Uncover and top with cheese and crushed up tortilla chips, cook for another 10 minutes longer.

Top with sour cream.
