  • 2 tubes crescent rolls you will have leftover dough
  • 1 lb 92% Laura’s Lean Ground Beef
  • ½ cup enchilada sauce
  • 1 oz taco seasoning
  • ½ cup corn
  • ½ cup black beans
  • ½ cup diced tomatoes
  • ¾ cup shredded Mexican cheese mix
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Spray a 12 count muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • Open a tube of crescent rolls and lay the dough on a flat surface. Seal the seams with your fingers to make one larger piece of dough. This will make 8 squares so you will need to use a second tube of dough and repeat the process to get 4 additional squares of dough.
  • Slice the dough into 8 squares using a pizza cutter.
  • Form each square of crescent dough into a cup in the tin. Set the muffin tin aside when done.
  • Place ground beef into a heated skillet. Break up the beef with a spatula and cook over medium heat until no longer pink.
  • Once the beef has browned, drain the pan and add in the enchilada sauce, taco seasoning mix and corn. Cook for a few minutes over medium heat, stirring to combine.
  • Remove the mixture from the pan and place in a bowl. Add the beans and diced tomatoes to the bowl and mix carefully.
  • Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, scoop up the beef mixture and pour into the crescent cups.
  • Sprinkle the top of each beef taco crescent cup with shredded Mexican cheese.
  • Bake in 375 degree oven for 16-20 minutes. If the edges are browning too fast, place foil over the pan. Remove from oven and let cool a bit before removing from muffin pan.
