    kimboleyanne's Note:

    This recipe can also be made as just a dip with tortilla chips; eliminate the salsa, shredded cheese and shells. It is one of my most favorite "comfort food" meals and super easy to prepare! You can also freeze the leftovers; they are usually better the next time around. Just let thaw in fridge overnight.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb ground sirloin
    • 1 lb breakfast sausage (mild or hot, depending on your taste)
    • 2 (1 ounce) packets taco seasoning mix
    • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, low fat
    • 1 cup salsa, use your favorite
    • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, I like mexican blend, but you can use whatever you like
    • 1 (12 ounce) package jumbo pasta shells

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Before you start your meats, begin boiling large pot of water for shells.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    3. 3
      After water starts boiling, add salt, if desired, and shells. Boil for 2 minutes less than the package calls for (usually around 9-10 minutes).
    4. 4
      Brown meats in large skillet until no longer pink; drain grease, if desired. Add cream cheese and taco seasoning, along with the amount of water called for in only ONE of the packages (usually 2/3 or 1/2 c.) Mix until well blended and creamy.
    5. 5
      When shells are done boiling drain and let cool for a few minutes. Prepare 9x13 baking dish by adding salsa mixed with 1/2c. water.
    6. 6
      Start stuffing shells with meat mixture and place in baking dish until there is no room left. I try to squeeze in as many as I can because they are so good!
    7. 7
      Sprinkle with shredded cheese and bake covered 30-35 minutes, then uncover and bake for 5 minutes.
