Flippin' Pat thinks tacos are always a good idea and is so excited to share this new taco pocket recipe with you! The taco seasoning from Trader Joe's is super spicy, just the way Flippin' Pat likes it! Flippin' Pat hopes you try this different and fun recipe next taco Tuesday or really any of the day of the week!
1 or 2 tubes crescent rolls (each tube makes 8 taco pockets)
2 tablespoons of taco seasoning
1 pound of ground chicken, turkey or beef
Sharp cheddar, sliced off the block
1/4 cup sour cream
Juice of half of a lime
Tablespoon chopped cilantro
Salt to taste
Lettuce & tomatoes for topping/garnish
Brown meat, season with taco seasoning, and 1/4 cup of water, and cook through. Allow meat to cook for a few minutes so it’s not too hot for the crescent rolls
Slice a piece of cheddar for each roll
Place a piece of cheddar at the long part of crescent triangle, top with taco meat, fold in sides, and fold triangle furthest from the base on top to form pocket. Note, you may need to press the edges together a bit to keep filling from coming out
Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes until golden brown
Serve with your favorite taco toppings
Cilantro lime dipping sauce: mix sour cream, lime juice, a pinch of salt, and chopped cilantro.
