Taco Stuffed Shells

Taco Stuffed Shells


1 package uncooked jumbo pasta shells

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef

1 bottle (18 oz) taco sauce, divided

3 oz cream cheese, cubed

2 tsp chili powder

3/4 cup shredded Mexican or Cheddar Cheese

Approximately 20 tortilla chips, coarsely crushed


Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook beef until no longer pink; drain. Add 1/2 cup taco sauce, cream cheese and chili powder; cook and stir until blended. Stir in 1/4 cup cheese.

Drain pasta and rinse in cold water; stuff each shell with about 2 tablespoons beef mixture. Arrange in an 11 x 7 baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon remaining taco sauce over top.

Cover and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining cheese blend. Bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until heated through and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with chips.
