These Puffy Tacos are my new favorite way to eat tacos. They were SO good! We dipped them in some salsa, ranch dip and a combination of the two. These Puffy Tacos taste great right out of the oven or at room temperature. We even reheated the leftovers for lunch the next day. They tasted great every time.

There are only 5 ingredients in these Puffy Tacos and they only take a few minutes to assemble. The best part about these Puffy Tacos is that you can assemble them ahead of time and freeze them unbaked for later. Perfect for tailgating and holiday parties!

  1. Looks like a delicious little treat. We had your southwestern chicken spaghetti last night and loved it - blog post coming in a few days.

  2. I am going to make these for supper tonight. Friday is grill night at our house but to be honest, I am hamburgered out! I think these little morsels might just be the perfect thing for Friday night here! I don't have puff pastry but I do have crescent roll dough, so I am going to try them wrapped in crescent dough. I think they will be yummy! I love your recipes and blog! Thanks! :)

  4. If you freeze them for later do you unthaw them before baking. Also, do you bake at the same amount of time and oven setting?

    1. I usually thaw them before baking. It doesn't take much time for them to thaw.

  5. Stephanie, I made these yesterday and boy, are they ever good. But my question is, is there a trick to holding the pastry together? The first batch I made they all came open. Second batch I was able to somewhat correct the problem with that. Do you just pinch the dough together or is there a trick? I will be making these a lot. so good.
    Thanks. Nancy

    1. A little water on the bottom corner and then pinch them really good.
      You can also stick a toothpick in there if you are still having issues. Usually the water on the bottom corner works for me.
