Taco Stuffed Shells


Taco Stuffed Shells

The taco stuffed shells recipe is a family favorite in our house. My husband and I love to make them for dinner, and our kids always gobble them up.
This is a dish that is so good it is hard to imagine not making it. When you stuff the jumbo pasta shells with taco-flavored meat and then top it with gooey cheese, it is almost heaven in a baking dish.
The stuffed jumbo pasta shells can also be topped with your favorite toppings for Mexican food.
These taco stuffed shells are super easy to make! Just stuff the shells with the filling, top with some cheese, and bake. In no time at all, you’ll have a delicious meal that the whole family will love.


  • 8 oz. Jumbo Shell Pasta
  • 1 lb. Ground beef
  • 1 Packet taco seasoning
  • 2 tsp. Minced garlic
  • 5 oz. Cream cheese
  • 1 C. Salsa
  • ¼ C. Chopped green onions
  • 1 C. Shredded taco blend cheese


    • Boil the jumbo shell pasta until al dente, drain, and rinse in cold water to keep the noodles from sticking together.
    • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    • Add the ground beef to a skillet over medium high heat, and saute until completely browned. Drain and excess fat.
    • Mix in the minced garlic and saute 30 seconds more.
    • Add the taco seasoning packet, cream cheese, and salsa to the skillet with the beef and stir until the cream cheese is completely melted. Let the meat mixture cool.
    • Stuff the cooked jumbo shell pasta with the ground beef mixture and place it into a well-greased 9×13 baking dish.
  • Sprinkle with the cheese and bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • Garnish with fresh chopped green onions and serve.
