I know it's a day late, but I hope everyone had a great weekend! I started my weekend off on Saturday after work with a much-needed lunch with Best Friend Rock Climber and Best Friend Auditor. We hadn't seen each other since December so it was so nice to catch up with those fabulous ladies!
On Sunday, Hunter Husband and I went on a double date with Motorcycle Mom and Harley Dad. We headed down to Eugene to see John Carter in IMAX - awesome movie!
And yesterday, I did a whole lot of nothing. Lazy days are my fave.
Anywho...on to the point of today's post!
Last weekend, we had some company over for dinner and I made this delicious dish. I found this recipe a few months ago on a great food blog called The Way to His Heart through Pinterest. It was a huge hit with Hunter Husband the first time I made it a while back, so it has become a staple in our house. Of course, I love all Mexican food so I knew I'd love it.
Here's what you will need:
Mexican Stuffed Shells
1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg low-sodium taco seasoning
4 oz. cream cheese
14-16 jumbo pasta shells
1 1/2 cups salsa
1 cup red taco sauce
2 cups shredded cheese
3 green onions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium skillet, cook ground beef. Add taco seasoning and cook according to directions on package. Add cream cheese. Cover and cook until cheese is melted; stir until cheese is mixed in with beef. Set aside and let cool.
While ground beef is cooking, cook the pasta shells according to package directions; drain. Lay shells out individually on a flat surface so that the shells don't stick together.
Pour salsa into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Stuff each shell with the beef mixture and arrange them into the baking dish, open side up.
Drizzle taco sauce over shells. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Add shredded cheese and continue baking, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes. Top with green onions and serve with sour cream.
The shells were devoured as soon as I set them on the table, so I didn't get a chance to snap a picture of the finished product, but here is what they look like:
