Cinco de Mayo Taco Pops  

As prepared by Michelle P

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a twist on the traditional taco.


Like most Midwesterners, I’m simply mad for anything on a stick. Now that I think about it, one of my favorite foods—tacos—is completely unrepresented in this department. Until now…

I decided to create a unique version of the traditional Mexican taco for Cinco de Mayo. These Taco Pops will be a fabulous addition to your celebration, but they're not only a great little appetizer—they’re also great for a quick, fun snack or kid lunch.

A word of caution though—make more than you think you’ll need. A double batch may be in order. I ate five in the course of taking photographs without even realizing it! Also, this is a great way to repurpose those taco night leftovers.



These pops are so easy to make. You’ll need about a cup of prepared taco filling (I used ground turkey with Old El Paso taco seasoning) and one package of Pillsbury Crescent rolls.



Roll out the crescent roll dough in a sheet, and just pinch the pre-cut edges back together.



Cut into three long strips, lengthwise, and then in five, to make 15 squares.



Spoon a little bit of taco filling on each square.



Pinch the edges up, to make a little purse, enclosing the filling.



Roll quickly between your hands to smooth.



Bake at 375 degrees for 11 to 13 minutes, until golden brown.



Allow to cool, then insert a lollipop stick.



Serve with your favorite taco-style fixings—salsa con queso, salsa, guacamole, and sour cream.

Well, I don’t know about you, but I feel so much better now that we have rectified the glaring omission of tacos in the “food on a stick” category.

Hope you enjoy!
