These Cheesy Mexican Stuffed Shells are a winning flavor packed meal. This is comfort food at it’s best!
If you love Mexican food, or any food that has even a little Mexican flair like I do, you are going to love this meal! It makes enough to feed a crowd, so it’s awesome to make when you have friends and family over. But even if you are cooking for just a few people, freeze half of the recipe for another night when you don’t feel like cooking. Meals like these are lifesavers!
When I was about 7 or 8 months pregnant I made these Mexican Shells. I filled 2 pans and put one in the oven and one in the freezer so I would have an easy meal once the baby was born. Boy, I wish I did a little more meal prep like that, because it was SO nice knowing I already had a meal ready. All I had to do was turn on the oven, and at the end of a hectic day, we had an awesome meal that everyone loved!
You can easily control the spice in this dish by using mild or hot salsa. I used mild since my little ones would be eating it too, but if you like a little spice, go for the hot stuff!
This is one of those meals that will become a regular on your dinner menu – it’s so good!
