Love Mexican food, but a bit tired of taco’s and nacho’s? Try Judi’s delicious Mexican Manicotti recipe. Easy to make, a little goes a long way and there’s very little clean up involved!
You will need:
- Large bowl
- 9 x 13 baking dish (lightly oiled or sprayed with cooking spray)
- Box of Manicotti shells
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 tsp. oregano
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 can refried beans
- 1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
- 1 Cup salsa (your choice)
- 1 Cup chopped onion
- 2 Cups Mozzarella or Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
- Sour cream (optional)
- Olives … your choice (optional)
Mix the ground beef. oregano chili powder, beans and taco mix together in a bowl.
Stuff mixture into uncooked manicotti shells and place stuffed manicotti in baking dish.
Top with 1 cup of water and 1 cup of salsa, cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Remove from oven and top with enough sour cream to cover, diced onions and shredded cheese. Continue baking until cheese turns brown …. watch closely, it’s usually about 12-15 minutes.
Serve warm with a side salad and your choice of bread. We prefer cornbread to garlic toast with this, but again, it’s personal choice.
Pour your favorite beverage and enjoy!
