I must say that Pinterest is giving me WAY to much inspiration.  Not only are there crafts to do and just pretty things to look at, but there are lots and lots of yummy recipes just waiting for me to cook.  I found this one and it comes from a little blog called Pearls, Handcuffs, Happyhour.  I did a few minor changes to make it better for us, but it was great!

1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 {14 oz.} pkg. cream cheese
12 large pasta shells
1 cup salsa
I cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 chp shredded monterrey jack cheese
1/2 cup tortilla chips, crushed
3 green onions, chopped {we left these out}
1 cup sour cream

In a fry pan cook ground beef and add taco seasoning and prepare according to season package. Add cream cheese cover and simmer until cheese is melted. Blend well. Set aside and allow to fully cool. While the meat is cooking cook the pasta shells.
Pour salsa in the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
Stuff each shell with the meat mixture. Place the stuffed shells in the baking dish and cover the tops of the shells with a little salsa.
Cover with foil and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, uncover, and sprinkle crushed chips and shredded cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses on top. Cook for about 15 more minutes. Serve with sour cream and chopped onions.  Our just about anything that you like with tacos.
**I am thinking that the next time we are just going with the Mexican Blend shredded cheese instead of buying two separate ones.
