    You can add jalapeños, hot sauce or green chilies to this to add a real kick! **edited on October 24 to add instructions for Once a Month Cooking. I usually make these during a cooking blitz and freeze until I need them**

      Wow! These were awesome! I used one package of Yves brand vegetarian ground round and 1 tbsp. cumin, 1/2 tsp. chili powder and 1 tsp. chopped garlic instead of seasoning. I used marble cheese and the sauce was soooo good!!! A keeper for sure and very filling!

      What a great recipe! Made this last night for the 2 of us and hubby and I both agreed it deserved 5 stars! I halved the recipe for just the 2 of us (however, I used 8 shells, not six). Used a little less onion to fit our taste, and used a mix of Monterey Jack and cheddar. Also, I didn't have any taco seasoning so I made my own: 1 T chili powder, 1/2 t salt, and a sprinkle of garlic powder. Sorry to "change" so much, but it was great either way! Had it again for lunch today; will definitely make this again!

      A 5 * change for us!Had these for supper last night, will be keeping this one in my hard copy for when the grandkids visit, they'll love it, as we did! Scaled the recipe to half and had lots left for lunch today. Used 6 shells. Worked out great, nice taste and just enough heat, using medium salsa. Had to use cheddar, had no Monterey Jack. Will certainly make these again, thanks for sharing.
