Mexican Stuffed Shells

Mmm Mmm...
I was inspired by a recipe I found on Pinterest and made Mexican Stuffed Shells. 
I had an actual recipe saved on my "Recipes" board but my internet decided to stop working and Matt was at school taking his math final so I couldn't text him for help.
So...I improvised. 
And...it was so yummy! I'm looking forward to lunch tomorrow already ; )

Chelsea's Mexican Stuffed Shells
1 lb of ground beef
1 regular sized bag of Colby Jack cheese
1 box of Jumbo Shells
Mild Taco Sauce
Mild Chunky Salsa
1 green pepper chopped small
3 green onions chopped small (so Matt didn't know they're in there)
1 pkg. taco seasoning
3/4 cup water

{Line 1 & 2 at the same time}
Brown the ground beef. Drain. Add 3/4 C water and stir. Heat for a few minutes. 
Cook noodles according to directions on the box. Drain.

Mix peppers, onions and salsa into meat. {I just added salsa until I thought it was enough}
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stuff all the jumbo shells and put in a casserole dish.
Cover with the taco sauce and cheese.

Bake for 25 minutes.




  1. Oh my! These look absolutely delicious. I must try!

  2. I love that you chopped the onions up so Matt didn't know they were in there...I totally do that with my husband, too! He swears to all things that he hates cottage cheese..he's yet to realize there's cottage cheese in the lasagna I make that he loves so much. ;)
