    Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • 2
    Roll out the crescent roll dough in a sheet, and just pinch the precut edges back together.
  • 3
    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 and enclose the filling. Roll quickly between your hands to smooth.
  • 4
    Bake at 375°F for 11 to 13 minutes, until golden brown.
  • 5
    Allow to cool for a few minutes, then insert a lollipop stick into each.

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

More About This Recipe
  • 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. 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!
