1) 1/2 lb ground beef (I use at least 93% lean)
2) Taco seasoning (for ours, we use a little cornstarch, a little flour, a lot of cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and onion powder)
3) 1/2 cup Mexican style cheese
4) 3-4 dashes Tabasco sauce
5) 1 can enchilada sauce
Mix the first 4 ingredients together and form into small balls.
Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 15 minutes. I double check doneness with a meat thermometer though.
Remove from oven and place in a medium sized bowl, pour enchilada sauce over the top of meatballs and stir well.
1) Manicotti shells
2) Small tub of ricotta cheese
3) Italian seasonings
4) Onion powder
5) Garlic powder
6) 1 whole egg
7) 1 cup mozzarella cheese
8) 2 cups marinara sauce
Cook manicotti per package directions
Mix ingredients 2-6 together in medium bowl.
Rinse manicotti with lukewarm water and then fill with the ricotta mixture
Place 1/4 cup marinara sauce in the bottom of a baking pan and put stuffed manicotti on top, than pour the remainder of the marinara sauce over the manicotti and cover with mozzarella cheese.
Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and slightly browned
