Just tried this recipe and it is so good!
1 1/4 lbs lean ground beef
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 cups shredded cheese
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.
Thanks Ash for insisting that I try it even though I thought it sounded weird.
I started this blog a few years ago because I was tired of trying to organize all my recipes. I never knew what cookbook the recipe I was looking for was in and I would spend hours thumbing through books and papers trying to find the one I was looking for. I don't cook anything fancy, just simple homemade food that our family enjoys. If me or my family won't eat it then you won't find the recipe on my blog. I am not blogging for fame so the recipes may be posted randomly. I only post recipes that I have tried and we will be making again. I hope you enjoy our collection of our family's favorites recipes. ~Krista C.
