Take a break from the usual Italian dinner dish with this new recipe twist. "Get Stuffed" Mexican Stuffed Shells take an Italian-style recipe and give it a whole new life. Typically, a stuffed shell recipe involves lots of different types of cheeses and marinara sauce. In this Mexican-style dish, the shells are filled with cream cheese and ground beef, and then smothered in salsa and enchilada sauce. This unexpected combination of Mexican ingredients and pasta is wonderfully delicious. Be prepared to serve this meal for dinner a lot in the future!

Yummy! This is a great meal. It keeps well for leftovers. There are just two of us living here now. Great to take to work for lunch! As far as cheeses at the end, I went with Monterey jack instead of mozzarella. It just seems more of a Mexican melting cheese. I think prep time is more than 25 minutes so give yourself extra time making it.

I've made the Italian version of stuffed shells before and really enjoyed them. I love Mexican food and I can't wait to give this recipe a try. When I've made the Italian version, I used the traditional ricotta cheese, but using cream cheese is something I'd like to try. Does anyone have any suggestions for minimizing the number of shells that might split during the cooking process? I always cook extra, but I'd like to keep the breakage to a minimum.

I haven't made stuffed shells in a long time, and I've never made them with a Mexican twist. I can't wait to try these. We love pasta and Mexican food.

I can imagine this pasta dish being delicious. The stuffing is akin to lasagne but this has a twist combining cream cheese with the ground beef instead of making a cheese sauce. The enchilada sauce would add some nice heat and spiciness. I like my food spicy. I'm looking forward to trying out this recipe!

I made these for my family last week, since I happened l of the ingredients on hand, and they were a big hit! I love the Italian version, which tastes similar to a lasagna, but my husband doesn't like them at all. Something about the sweetness and texture of the ricotta cheese doesn't appeal to him. He really likes Mexican food though, especially if it is smothered in good enchilada sauce and cheesse! Thanks for this recipe idea, I am sure we are going to be making it quite often!

Baked pasta dishes are always a huge hit with my family and I know theyre really going to love this delicious sounding Mexican inspired version. What Id like to know is if anyone has perhaps tried substituting the meat for a vegetarian version? . Im wondering if beans would work or perhaps you have other suggestions? Were not strictly vegetarian but tastes in my family tend to lean towards meatless meals so Im always on the look out for interesting and tasty ideas.
