This quick and easy recipe for crescent roll burritos wraps spicy beef in a crescent roll dough with a salsa topping for a fun Tex-Mex supper!
All you lovers of completely authentic Mexican food, I apologize and please close your eyes and cover your ears. Because this recipe, which is quick and easy and tasty, involves one of my favorite cooking ingredients, and that is a tube of crescent roll dough.
I’m sorry, but it’s true, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Crescent roll dough in a tube, you ROCK.
Here’s how you make crescent roll burritos!
First make the taco filling by cooking up some ground beef, chopped onion and a couple tablespoons of your favorite taco seasoning.
Next, separate the crescent roll dough into rectangles, pushing on the perforations to seal them. Ladle a few spoonfuls of the beef mixture onto each rectangle, a little salsa and a little shredded cheese. Roll them up, pinch the edges to seal them, and pop them in the oven for about 20 minutes.
From there on in, it is all about the toppings. I like to ever mine with salsa and a dollop of with some sour cream.
You can drape some cheese over the top and pop it back in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese melts. And/or you can throw some guacamole on the plate…whatever catches your fancy. The world is your burrito.
That’s what you get when we Irish girls start cooking Mexican food — mass chaos. But it did taste good!Print
