Mexican Mania

I love Mexican food and have been making this recipe for years and it is always a big hit! It isn’t too spicy, but just has enough bite to it. If you do love spice you can add hot red pepper flakes or tabasco sauce if you’d like. Try it first just how it is won’t be disappointed! PLUS it’s super easy and quick..A go to, delicious meal that makes you feel like you’re eating at an authentic Mexican restaurant.

Mexican Shells

13 ounces ground turkey (you can use ground beef if you prefer)
1 medium onion
4 cloves garlic
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp. dry oregano
1/2 cup mild salsa (you can use hot salsa if you prefer)
1/4 cup fat free sour cream
10 oz. can Old El Paso Mild Enchilada Sauce
12 jumbo pasta shells, cooked & drained
1 1/2 ounce shredded cheddar cheese (low fat preferred)

Preheat the oven to 350°. Brown ground turkey with onion and garlic on medium heat until the onion is cooked (translucent), about five minutes. Cool that mixture for about ten minutes. Add spices, sour cream, and salsa. Mix all together. Stuff the shells and arrange them in a 9×13 pan.  Pour can of enchilada sauce over the shells. Cover and bake for 15 minutes. Uncover and add shredded cheese. Bake for another five minutes or until the cheese is completely melted. Enjoy!
