 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 pkg. taco seasoning
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cheese divided
  • 1 pkg. manicotti shells
  • 1 (15 oz) bottle green taco sauce (I like La Victoria Mild Green)
  • 1 cup warm water
  • sour cream


In a large bowl, mix ground beef (uncooked), refried beans and 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterrey pepper jack cheese and taco seasoning until well blended.
Fill uncooked manicotti shells with meat mixture by gently pressing meat mixture into shell until the shell fills. *A trick I like to do is to fill a large zip lock bag with the meat mixture, seal. Cut off one of the bottom corners and squeeze the mixture into the shells.*
Mix bottle of green taco sauce and 1 cup water in a large bowl. Pour a small amount of the green sauce into the bottom of a large baking dish to cover.
Lay shells in single layer on top of enchilada sauce. Pour remaining sauce over manicotti shells. Sprinkle on 1/2 cup of the remaining shredded cheese.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven and top with 1/2 cup more cheese and return to oven until cheese melts.
Top with sour cream.
