How to make Taco Crescent rolls:
With a shortlist of ingredients and only a few steps, these Taco Crescent rolls come together quickly for a great family dinner.
Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees.
Then, cook the meat in a skillet until it is well cooked. Drain off excess fat and add taco seasoning and cheese. Mix well.
Separate the dough from the crescent rolls and place the triangles on an ungreased baking sheet. Place 3 tablespoons of the meat mixture in each triangle and roll into a crescent.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cover with more cheese and sauce, of course!
You’ll need it:
2 tubes of crescent roll
1 pound of ground beef (or ground turkey)
1 package of taco seasoning
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 or 2 diced tomatoes depending on size
1/2 small can of sliced olives if desired
optional sour cream
sliced avocado optional
How to do it:
Place the two half-moon paste tubes, thick sides inwards.
Use some of the remaining crescent rolls to make the center a little thicker.
Brown the meat and add the taco seasoning.
Put the meat in a circle inside the crescent rolls…
add cheese on top
…pull the crescent rolls and put them under the meat and cheese.
Add cheese, lettuce, tomato, black olives, sour cream or whatever you want for your tacos, in the middle.
Follow the cooking time on the crescent roll packet, and once it’s done, you’re ready to go!
