Taco Crescent Rolls

Four ingredients, folks. Don’t you love hearing that? Taco Crescent Rolls are perfect for busy nights or a weekend snack. It is one of those go-to recipes when you are thinking “What in the world are we going to eat tonight?!!” Simple, easy, and super yum. (Kids dig it.)

Taco Crescent Rolls are fast, easy, and delicious.

So there I was, driving home after a long day at work. I really didn’t want to cook, but I knew I had to. If not, we would all starve. (Know the feeling?)

P.S. There’s nothing like coming home to see your kid eating a can of pinto beans to lay on the guilt!

My goal was to cook something yummy, easy, fast, and everyone in my home would eat with no complaint. Tacos are my usual go-to meal on nights like this, but I was out of lettuce and tomatoes.

Easy Mexican, at home!

 

We browned some ground beef, and seasoned it with just HALF  package of taco seasoning mix. You can use the whole pack if you want, but sometimes this makes the meat too salty for our preference.

I would like to take this moment to thank the inventor of canned crescent rolls.

Yummy, affordable, and you can make so many things with them.

(Mini pie shells, Mountain Dew Dumplings, side bread, and of course, Taco Crescent Rolls.)

Perfect as is, but if you like to dip serve with your favorite salsa and sour cream. Our Cilantro Lime Dip and Fresh Guacamole would be awesome, too!
