    1. 1
      Cook the beef in a large pot; drain well when done.
    2. 2
      *you can add the onions if you like, I don't always use them.
    3. 3
      stir in can of re-fried beans and approx 3/4 to half of the salsa (leave some for topping)
    4. 4
      add some cheddar cheese, I usually add approx 1 cup (leave some for topping)
    5. 5
      add salt and pepper to taste.
    6. 6
      let this mixture warm on the stove a few minutes just to melt the cheese.
    7. 7
      Turn off.
    8. 8
      Warm the shells a few at a time in the microwave on a plate with a slightly damp paper towel on top.
    9. 9
      Place 2 ice cream scoop sizes of meat mixture in the middle of the shell, roll up and place seam side down in a lightly buttered 9x13 pan (you will need more than one pan)
    10. 10
      Once you have rolled them all and placed in pans, brush lightly with butter or margarine.
    11. 11
      spread remaining salsa on top (I like to use lots and have some left over if anyone wants to add more).
    12. 12
      sprinkle with remaining cheese.
    13. 13
      Place in a warm oven 200-250F approx 10-15 minutes until heated through and cheese is melted.
    14. 14
      Serve with extra salsa and sour cream.
    15. 15
      This is a recipe that can be made for a small supper feeding 4-6 or can be made for 10 or more depending on how many shells you buy and the size of shells I buy large ones.
    16. 16
      This is very filling so I don't add anything to the meal.
    17. 17
      It is easy and inexpensive to make and not one person I have ever made it for did not LOVE it.

      WOW! What a lifesaver you are!! I needed something quick, easy, inexpensive and teenagers would like as well as husband and self. This fits the bill 100%. It made a lot, thank goodness because they ate it all. How do you feed a hungry ball team? This is the recipe.

      THANK YOU!! We love this recipe. I use Morningstar Farms crumbles in place of the beef and nobody can even tell! Those Mission Carb Balance whole wheat tortillas are perfect for the oven and add a ton of fiber. I use Pam instead of butter. Tillamook makes really good fat free sour cream so I serve that on the side. What a simple and totally flexible recipe! Thanks Shirl!!
