For our Cinco de Mayo main meal we made stuffed shells, taco style!  I saw this recipe the other day and knew it was perfect for Cinco de Mayo.

2. Boil water in a pot.  Add  the jumbo shells and cook until shells are soft.  About 12 minutes.

5. Add the cream cheese to the beef.  Cook until melted.

6. Put the salsa in a baking pan.

7. Stuff the shells with the beef mixture.  Put the shells on the salsa.

8. Drizzle the taco sauce over the shells.
