    MizzNezz's Note:

    Make this in the morning, bake it that evening. A hearty entree. Our vegetarians can leave out the meat, with great results.

      What a great do ahead dish! I was a little concerned about using the raw ground beef, but it turned out fine! I used 2 cups of shredded Taco cheese for the topping because I love cheese! This dish puts "Taco Bell" in the dog house!!

      Good heavens, the dish definitely has a Mexican/Southwest flair, so the name fits it. Made it last night, and it is fabulous, easy, and worthy of company. I did tweak it a bit, however as follows: added 1 heaping teaspoon of McCormick's Chipotle pepper powder as well as the heaping 3 teaspoons of regular chili powder, used refried beans with green chiles, added a couple of tablespoons of hot sauce to the picante sauce/water mix, and I topped it off with lowfat sour cream and pepper jack cheese. It was to our taste for spicy (we like food hot). I intend to try it with ground pork, chipotle salsa in place of picante sauce, and even more chipotle pepper powder. There are many ways to tweak this recipe - it's excellent.

      I've made a similar recipe for years and everyone always loves it. The only differences are that I brown the ground beef before adding the refried beans and seasonings, and I do not refrigerate the stuffed shells before baking. Great recipe.
