Chicken Taco Calzones

What could be better than a taco? An extra cheesy chicken taco calzone!

Ingredients

2
tablespoons olive oil
1
pound ground chicken
1
sweet onion, chopped
3/4
cup water
1
packet Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
2
(13 ounce) Pillsbury™ refrigerated pizza crust
2
cups shredded Mexican cheese
1
can Old El Paso™ refried beans
1
cup Muir Glen™ organic medium salsa or spicy tomato sauce
1/2
cup chopped tomatoes
1/4
cup chopped jalapeños
1/4
cup chopped cilantro
1
cup fresh lettuce
1/3
cup sour cream

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2 Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ground chicken and chopped onion. Brown completely, breaking up the meat as you go. Once the meat is browned throughout and the onions are soft, add the water and taco seasoning. Give everything a good stir and simmer until the liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat.
  • 3 Unroll the pizza dough and cut it into 4 squares. Fold the corners over so you create an oval shape. Working on one half of the oval, spread some cheese. Now top with taco meat, refried beans, salsa and then more cheese. Fold the top half of the dough over the filling and pinch the seams together with your fingers to seal the filling inside. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • 4 Bake the calzones for 20-25 minutes or until light golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and top each calzone with fresh tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro, lettuce and sour cream.
