Recipe Tuesday

on a lighter note - today is Tuesday which means...Tasty Tuesday and Tempt My Tummy Tuesday!

One of the first dishes I learned to make was TexMex Shells & Cheese. As with a lot of my recipes, I borrowed it from the Kraft Foods web site.

1 lb. lean ground beef 1 pkg.
12 oz. (1 box) Shells & Cheese Dinner
1 can (14-1/2 oz.) Mexican-style diced tomatoes, undrained
1-1/4 cups water
1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese

BROWN meat in nonstick skillet on medium-high heat; drain.

STIR in Shells, tomatoes with their liquid and water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 15 min.

ADD Cheese Sauce; stir until blended. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.

This is about a $3 meal (we don't use the shredded cheddar, its cheesy enough without it.
