Taco Braid

Here's a fun spin on a taco dinner and would be perfect for serving a large crowd! 

1. In a skillet, brown 1lb of ground meat. Season with your favorite taco seasoning.
When meat is just cooked through add half of a small onion and let cook a few minutes. Adding the onion now keeps it slightly crunchy.
Rinse and drain 1- 15oz can of black beans. Add to meat.
Drain 1 can of rotel tomatoes. Add to meat.
Heat til mixture is hot through out.


2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (makes clean up easy). Roll out 1 package of crescent roll onto baking sheet. Mend the perforations.

3. Cut crescent sheet on both sides 1inch apart. A pizza cutter works well


4. Put cooked meat mixture in center of cut crescent sheet


5. Put 2 cups of grated cheddar cheese on top of meat mixture

6. Fold crescent strips over meat mixture and press the strips together to seal the braid.


7. Bake in 350° oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown
