Recipe by Shirl J 831
READY IN: 50mins




  • Cook the beef in a large pot; drain well when done.
  • *you can add the onions if you like, I don't always use them.
  • stir in can of re-fried beans and approx 3/4 to half of the salsa (leave some for topping).
  • add some cheddar cheese, I usually add approx 1 cup (leave some for topping).
  • add salt and pepper to taste.
  • let this mixture warm on the stove a few minutes just to melt the cheese.
  • Turn off.
  • Warm the shells a few at a time in the microwave on a plate with a slightly damp paper towel on top.
  • 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).
  • Once you have rolled them all and placed in pans, brush lightly with butter or margarine.
  • spread remaining salsa on top (I like to use lots and have some left over if anyone wants to add more).
  • sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Place in a warm oven 200-250F approx 10-15 minutes until heated through and cheese is melted.
  • Serve with extra salsa and sour cream.
  • 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.
  • This is very filling so I don't add anything to the meal.
  • It is easy and inexpensive to make and not one person I have ever made it for did not LOVE it.
