Taco Bundles! Make as many as you want to celebrate Cinco De Mayo with your family and friends!
Hey there, it's Natalie, from The Creative Mom. Today I'm going to show you how to make Taco Bundles. They are such a fun dinner idea for your family, not to mention quick and easy. My kids had a wonderful time helping me assemble these little guys, and then each kid ate about a hundred of them for dinner, haha! They really are a fun dinner idea, and a great alternative to traditional tacos (which my son insists we have every Tuesday since he saw the Lego Movie... Taco Tuesday!) First you'll start by preparing your taco meat. We used traditional beef taco meat, but you could easily use chicken, pork, or even fish. Set out a loaf of Rhodes bread dough on a greased surface to thaw, and cover with sprayed plastic wrap. I have two loaves here, which was plenty for my family of 5. Once the dough is thawed, but before it rises, roll it out into a 12x6 rectangle. Then cut into small triangles. Mine were about 2-3 inches long on each side. Place a scoop of taco meat and a sprinkle of grated cheese on top of each triangle of dough. Then fold each corner of your triangle up and secure them together in the middle. You may need a toothpick or two to hold them together. Repeat with each taco bundle. Place on a sprayed baking sheet, or a silicone mat lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and delicious looking! Serve with all the traditional taco toppings on top: onion, tomato, lettuce, salsa, sour cream, guacamole, and even more cheese if you want. And you've got yourself a quick and easy dinner idea your entire family will love!

20 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, minced
1.25 ounce packet taco seasoning
1/2 cup water
8 slices pepper jack cheese
2 or 3 roma tomatoes, chopped
4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Combine 5 rolls and roll into a 12x6-inch rectangle. Repeat with remaining rolls to make 4 rectangles. Cover all with plastic wrap and let rest.
Brown ground beef and drain well. Add onion, taco seasoning and water and simmer about 10 minutes. Cool slightly. Remove wrap from dough and divide each rectangle in half to make two 6-inch squares. Divide each square into 4 triangles by cutting in half diagonally both directions. Cut each slice of cheese into 4 triangles. Place a triangle of cheese, a spoonful of ground beef, 3-4 pieces of chopped tomato and some cilantro on top of each dough triangle. Wrap the 3 points over the filling and press to seal.
Place on a sprayed baking sheet and bake at 350°F 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
