Taco Crescents


These taco crescents were inspired by one of my favorite breakfast/tailgating recipes - Sausage and Cream Cheese Crescents. I was thinking about new recipes and wondered how taco meat would taste instead of sausage. I gave it a try and it was fabulous!

You can make the meat mixture ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake the crescents. I like to do bite size crescents. I split the crescent roll in half to make two triangles. Feel free to skip that and just put double the meat on one full crescent roll.

I used lean ground beef, low fat cream cheese and low fat crescent rolls and I couldn't tell a difference. I served the crescents with a little salsa and ranch for dipping. These Taco Crescents are great for a quick lunch or dinner. They would even be perfect for tailgating! I can't wait for college football next week! Are you as excited as I am?!?

  3. You can also just make squares. Put one package of crescent rolls on bottom of 9X13 pan, spread the meat mixture & sprinkle cheese on top & then top with 2nd package of crescent rolls. After baked, cut into squares. Same flavor but less time consuming.

  5. Hi! I'm a new reader. I thought I would try this recipe since it looked so easy... and it was! It tasted soo good, and my hubby said I could make it again (always a HUGE plus!). Thank you very much for this recipe! I'll definitely be making it again!

  7. I made these the other night and found them to be very pretty out of the oven but overly salty. I would recommend cutting back on the taco seasoning to 1/2 or 3/4 ounce to lessen salt. Otherwise very good.
