Taco Stuffed Shells

Quick and Easy Fudge: Savory Sweet and Satisfying: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

My girls had these shells while staying with their grandparents and absolutely loved them. They requested that my mom make them again so I could try them when I was there and give me the recipe. I would have to agree that they were pretty good and being covered in crushed Doritos only made them better.

Taco Stuffed Shells

Ingredients:

  • 18 jumbo pasta shells
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1-3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 4 ounces reduced fat cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups taco sauce
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed Doritos

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ F.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions and drain. Gently toss the drained shells with the butter and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet cook the ground turkey, over medium high heat until cooked and crumbled. Drain any fat.
  4. Turn the heat down to low and add your desired amount of chili powder to the cooked meat and stir to mix well. Add in the cream cheese and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.
  5. Fill the pasta shells with the meat mixture and place the shells in a 9x13 baking dish. Spoon the taco sauce over top.
  6. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes. Uncover and top with both cheeses and the crushed Doritos. Bake uncovered for 15 more minutes.
Enjoy!!!

Notes:
You can substitute salsa for the taco sauce if desired.
