Pillsbury Crescents

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Old El Paso™ hot & spicy taco seasoning mix
  • 1 pinch coarse salt
  • 1 tube (12 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls Big and Flaky (8 count)
  • 1/3 cup black refried beans
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped tomato
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 2 scallions, sliced

Steps

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    In a large skillet, brown the turkey until cooked through, about 7 minutes. Add the taco seasoning and salt. Cook another minute, until fragrant.
  • 3
    Unroll the crescents two at a time, keeping them in a rectangle. Press the perforated edges together.
  • 4
    Spread a little of the refried beans along half of the crescent dough. You can spread it diagonally to make triangle calzones, or on the lower half to make square calzones.
  • 5
    Top with the seasoned meat, shredded cheese, tomatoes, olives and scallions.
  • 6
    Fold the remaining dough over and pinch to seal, enclosing the filling.
  • 7
    Bake for roughly 15 minutes, or until the dough is cooked through and golden brown.
