Taco Twists Recipe
Why just serve tacos in ordinary flour or corn tortillas? For a mouthwatering change of pace, bake the taco beef in flaky, golden crescent rolls. My family enjoys these for a hearty lunch or light dinner.—Carla Kreider, Quarryville, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings
- 1 pound ground turkey or beef
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
