cooking: taco baked shells

i made some taco baked shells for dinner tonight and kyler ate more than craig and i did!
i think this qualifies as a kid friendly meal... but trust me, us big people enjoyed ourselves as well
first recruit your sous chef... mine just so happens to have a cheesey smile :)
boil your jumbo shells according to the package
brown your meat with some onion and once nearly done add your taco seasoning
once your shells are done, drain and rinse
stuff about whooping tablespoon of meat into your shells
i used a large casserole dish to hold my yummy vessels of goodness
surround your shells with some whole tomatoes
i used canned ones and just squished them up with my hands and poured some of the juice on the bottom of the dish
top with some shredded cheese and pop in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes
while that is baking, whip up a colorful and delish side salad
i used some crushed up tortilla chips as a substitute for croutons to fit our mexican styled dinner
plate, serve and devour!
