We love these! I don't cook it the way the recipe states. I cook my meat, drain it, then season the meat with the taco seasoning and a little tomato sauce so it's not dry. Sometimes instead of black beans, I'll use refried beans instead of black beans and just spread it onto the crescent roll dough. This is also good with monterey jack or pepperjack cheese. I like to make a reduced fat sour cream/salsa mix "dip" to serve with. Reduced fat crescent rolls work just as well. NOTE: If you don't have crescent roll dough, you can use whomp biscuits instead. Just flour your counter a little and roll out the biscuit a bit, add your fillings on one half of the biscuit, fold over and seal the ends together with a fork (think crescent "pie") and brush with a little egg wash. Either way you make it, it's always a hit.
I love Pilsbury Crescent Rolls and I love burritos...just not together. This recipe isn't something my family cared for at all. The tecnical side of the recipe wasn't written very well either. It said to combine the cooked and drained meat, and the rinsed and drained beans with the taco seasoning mix and boil. There was nothing to boil... I did add a little bit of water so the taco seasoning would mix together with the meat and beans. Also, it was WAY too much work and use of the oven for the end result. I'd rather just put the mean/bean mixture in a tortilla, roll it up and eat it. I won't be making this again.
Everyone really enjoyed these burritos. Just love the flaky ness of the crescent roll. Gives the burrito a whole new look and taste. Gonna' have some fun thinking of other fillings for the Crescent wraps. Love em'.
I read all of the comments before I made these and was pessimistic, at best. We filled the crescents with homemade refried beans (Refried Beans Without The Refry on AR) and cheese, as we don't eat meat. The beans were seasoned enough that I didn't think adding taco seasoning would bring much to the final product, so I left it out. I am happy with the result -- a warm, filling, easy meal that all three of my kids enjoyed. A lot of comments said that a tortilla would have done the job just fine, but I would disagree. These are good because they're different. The crescent roll pocket makes them more of a novelty instead of the same 'ole thing.
I made these with the kids and we all agreed they were a little dry. You could serve with salsa and that would help or even mix some salsa into the meat mixture.
I made these vegetarian for a friend coming over. I just left out the beef. Very tasty and she liked them, so it's nice to know I have something to go to when she comes to dinner. I tried them and thought they were pretty dang tasty, too. Very versatile recipe.
This doesn't taste like a standard burrito, but I mean that in a good way. The crescent roll dough gives you more of a buttery flavor, as opposed to what you'd get from a flour tortilla. I browned the beef first, drained, and then added the beans and taco seasoning. I was concerned that if all three were cooked together, I'd be draining the taco seasoning when I drained the ground beef mixture. I used Taco Seasoning I as well as some frozen black beans from Black Beans 'N' Rice, both recipes from the AR site. Served with sour cream and homemade pickled jalapenos. We liked this and will be making it again.
I used the FLAKY cresent rolls but I next time I'd used the regular ones. (they are great as rolls but a little greasy for this dish) This was tasty and quick! I had some taco shredded pork available and it works perfectly! These need to be eaten from the oven and great with salsa and sour cream!
