Ingredients

  • 12 ounces ground chuck or ground beef
  • 1 (4.5) ounce can Old El Paso green chilis
  • 1 (1 ounce) package Old El Paso taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 8 ounces low fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 x 20" French Bread Baguette, fully cooked
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • sea salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Cook ground chuck or beef in large skillet over medium high heat. Stir in taco seasoning. Stir until browned and fully cooked. Drain beef of oil and return to the skillet.
  3. Stir in green chilis, and salsa until fully combined.
  4. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, meat mixture, cilantro, and both types of cheeses.
  5. Cut the ends off of the baguette and cut bread into quarters.
  6. Using a long bread knife, cut the middle section out of the bread. Leave about a 1/2 inch wall around the outside of the bread.
  7. Fill each section of bread with the cream cheese mixture. Be careful not to break the outside layer of bread as you fill it.
  8. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, garlic, and sea salt.
  9. Lay the bread together on a piece of foil. Brush with the butter mixture. Sprinkle with more cilantro if desired.
  10. Wrap completely in the foil.
  11. Place foil wrapped bread in the oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes until inside is fully melted and the bread is browned.
  12. Serve warm, enjoy!
  13. Notes: If you would like the bread to be spicy, you can add Old El Paso Jalapenos as well! Chop 1/4 cup Jalapenos and add in to the cream cheese mixture.
  14. Keep the bread wrapped in foil until right before serving. This will help the cheese to stay melty and delicious!

I LITERALLY just made a stuffed baguette, but it was super boring with cheese only and the photos were awful! Yours is amazing and a "taco version" is just the BEST IDEA EVER! Pinned!
