Conchitas con Carne (Mexican Hamburger and Shells)


Conchitas con Carne (Mexican Hamburger and Shells)

I made this today and it is AMAZING! I stay away from spicy foods so my diet is very bland and simple. But for some reason, this recipe called me.

I don’t eat a lot of meat but I used some because I wanted to stick to the recipe. It’s delicious, but next time I’ll use ground tofu instead of beef.


This soup is perfect for pampering children and adding more protein to their diet. Of course, young and old all love it, so save the recipe to prepare it as soon as possible.

•1lb ground sirloin
