Mexican Shells {a recipe}

Woo Hoo gang! I'm back into my cooking groove! If you've been reading for a while, you know I love trying out new recipes and cooking! Well, I've made it a goal to cook at least 2 good meals a week and still fix dinner a 3rd or 4th time.  Anyways, I looked around in my pantry and made this super tasty meal! I'm already planning it to fix next week! There may be a recipe like this somewhere, but to me, I think I made it up! HAHA

What you need:
Pasta Shells (Barilla Jumbo Shells)
hamburger meat (Laura's Lean Beef - 1 lb)
chili-o packet
nacho cheese soup
banana peppers
shredded cheddar cheese
Franks Red Hot sauce

How to make:
Prepare shells, place to the side.
Brown hamburger meat and drain.  Then add chili-o packet over simmer once the meat is back in the skillet. Next, add 1/4 of the can of nacho cheese soup.  Mix well.
Add as many jalapenos and banana peppers as you want, as well as about 1/4 cup of shredded cheese.  I added enough to make it look colorful! :) 
On the baking pan, line with 1/2 of nacho cheese soup and Franks Red Hot (along with Pam, first).
Next, shake some red hot sauce over the meat mixture. 
Using a small spoon, scoop the meat mixture into each shell separately.  Place with opening of shell up or on side.  Place each shell closely together without on top of one another.
Pour the rest of the nacho cheese soup over the shells. Add the shredded cheese and more hot sauce to your liking and banana peppers/jalapenos. 
Cover with foil and bake on 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.

YUM YUM YUM! If you try it, let me know! :)
