Taco Stuffed Shells

Wow!  It has been WAY TOO LONG since my last post!  We have been ultra busy around here with school, soccer, Cole's 4th birthday celebrations, Halloween and Thanksgiving and everything in between!  I have been making my go-to meals and we have been eating out a lot.  I hadn't really tried anything new until recently!  I found this recipe on Pinterest, where else, via blogchef.net.  I thought it was going to be more complicated but it was surprisingly easy and it tasted great!


1 lb. ground turkey
1 pkg. taco seasoning
4 oz. cream cheese
12 large pasta shells
1 c. salsa
1 c. taco sauce
2 c. shredded cheddar jack cheese
1 1/2 c. crushed tortilla chips
3 green onions, chopped
1 c. sour cream


-  Cook shells according to directions on the box.  Drain and let cool.
-  In a large skillet, cook ground turkey until no longer pink.
-  Add taco seasoning to the meat according to the directions on the package.
-  Add cream cheese, cover and simmer until cream cheese is melted.  Stir to fully combine.
-  Let the meat and cream cheese mixture cool.
-  Pour salsa evenly into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.
-  Stuff each pasta shell with the meat mixture and place in the baking dish.
-  Top each shell with some of the taco sauce.
-  Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
-  After 30 minutes, uncover the shells and top each one with some of the crushed tortilla chips and shredded cheese.
-  Return to the oven, uncovered and bake until cheese is melted.
-  Serve with green onions and sour cream and avocados too!
