Mexican Sloppy Joes from the Pillsbury site!

Mexican Sloppy Joes

You Need:


2
cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
1/2
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
2
tablespoons Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)
1
cup Old El Paso® Thick ‘n Chunky salsa
1
cup shredded Cheddar-Jack with jalapeño peppers cheese blend (4 oz)
1
egg, beaten
1
tablespoon cornmeal

To Make: 

  • 1Heat oven to 375°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Unroll both cans of dough on work surface; press into two 12x8-inch rectangles. Cut into total of 8 rectangles.
  • 2In 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked. Stir in taco seasoning mix and salsa; simmer 5 minutes. Spoon about 1/4 cup meat mixture in center of 1 dough rectangle. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheese. Fold rectangle over to form triangle; press edges with fork to seal. Place on cookie sheet. Brush with egg; sprinkle with cornmeal. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  • 3Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until deep golden brown.

Tips:

Be careful when you seal the edges of these baked sandwiches. Make sure no filling is at the pastry edges, so you get a tight seal, and none of your tasty filling leaks out!

Making your own taco seasoning mix will cut down some of the sodium!
I make my own taco seasoning- it's quick, yummy, and no funky stuff!

Yeah! It's:

2 TBS chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp paprika
1TBS cumin
2 1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp pepper

I shake it all up in a small tubaware and store it in it too.

My ratio is 2 TBS taco seasoning to
1 pound ground beef. Then add 3/4 cup water. Just play around with however much you like.
