Cooking Instructions

Prepare your taste buds for an explosion of flavor by following these simple steps:

  1. Cook the ground beef: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown one pound of ground beef for about 5-7 minutes. Drain any excess grease from the skillet. Add the taco seasoning and 1/4 cup of water, stirring until all the ingredients are well combined. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, then remove the skillet from the stove.

  2. Fill the crescent rolls: Roll out the crescent rolls on a sheet of parchment paper. Place a spoonful of the taco-seasoned beef mixture about an inch from the top of each crescent roll dough triangle. Sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese over the ground beef.

  3. Roll up the crescent rolls: Starting from the top of the crescent roll dough, tightly roll the dough over the beef and cheese. Fold any excess dough on the sides over the top of the crescent roll. Transfer the taco crescent rolls to a baking sheet.

  4. Bake to perfection: Preheat your oven to 375°F and bake the crescent rolls for 10-12 minutes, or until they turn a glorious golden brown. Remove them from the oven and serve immediately.
