A bean taco filling makes these salsa-topped shells plump and satisfying. Serve with a tossed salad topped with broken tortilla chips for added crunch and flavor.

1 jar (16-ounce) jar ORTEGA Salsa - Homestyle Recipe (Mild), divided use
1/4 cup sliced green onion
Sour cream (optional)
PREHEAT oven to 350°F (175°C). Cook beef in large skillet until brown; drain. Add seasoning mix and water; cook over low heat for 5 minutes or until thickened. Add beans and 3/4 cup cheese; mix well. Spread 1/4 cup salsa over bottom of each of two 8-inch-square (2-quart) baking dishes.
FILL pasta shells with beef mixture; place half of shells in each baking dish, filled side up. Spoon remaining salsa over shells; top with onion, olives and remaining cheese. Cover one baking dish with plastic wrap, then overwrap with foil. Label and freeze for up to 2 months.
COVER remaining baking dish with foil. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with green onions and remaining cheese. Serve with sour cream.

Were you able to try any of these? I am tempted to try the Cheesey CHicken and Broccoli Stuffed Shells, but have not yet. If you did try it, was it good? Did the kids eat it?
