I have a small obsession with Mexican food. Okay it’s a large addiction. I love Mexican food. But at the same time, I love pasta smothered in cheese and sauce.

If only there was a recipe, that combined the best of both worlds.

Oh wait. There is. This Mexican Manicotti is out of this world, delicious. It has so much flavor and has the best taste.

Save RecipeSave Recipe


  • 2 cans fat free refried beans
  • 1 pkg taco seasoning
  • 14 to 16 manicotti shells uncooked (whole wheat if you can find them)
  • 2 (16 oz) bottles/cans green taco sauce
  • 1 cup low fat mozzarella grated cheese


  1. Stuff mixture into uncooked shells. I use a plastic baggie with a cut corner. Then squeeze the mixture in both sides of the manicotti shell.
  2. Lay stuffed shells into a 9X13 pan. Mix the green taco sauce with 1 bottle of water. (Use one of the bottles the sauce came in.) Pour sauce over manicotti, cover with foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from heat and sprinkle with cheese. Put back in oven until cheese is melted without the foil this time.
  3. Garnish with green onions, olives, tomatoes, and cut up lettuce.
