Taco Crescent Dinner for a Quick Weeknight Meal

Tacos are an amazing dinner, especially for a family.  They are easy to make, usually inexpensive thanks to sales, and they are great for gatherings and weeknight meals.  It seems like I’ve been stuck in a rut with my tacos though, so I thought I’d change it up with Taco Crescent Dinner.  It was a complete hit with my family.  Best yet, Taco Crescent Dinner is done in about 30 minutes, thanks to some easy ingredients and simple time management.

What Makes a Taco Crescent Dinner

You’ll find your favorites making a comeback in Taco Crescent Dinner.  Seasoned ground beef, shredded cheese, lettuce and tomatoes all add their delicious flavor.  The newcomer is refrigerator crescent rolls that form a blanket around the meat and cheese and creating a cradle for your favorite taco toppings.  There’s no need for fragile taco shells or flour tortilla shells that you need to steam to make them pliable.  The crescent rolls do all the work wonderfully!

Pulled Roast Beef Tacos Make Regular Tacos Boring

Making Pulled Roast Beef Tacos doesn’t need to be a difficult affair.  With the use of leftover roast beef, you can make the best Pulled Roast Beef Tacos you’ve ever had and find a new use for your leftovers.  I often make an extra large beef roast just so I have leftovers to make Pulled Roast Beef Tacos.  Your family will love this new way to use up your roast beef.

Why Pulled Roast Beef Tacos are Amazing

Leftover roast beef, especially when cooked in a Crock-Pot with some tomatoes, is so tender and delicious.  The flavors from cooking carry through to the Pulled Roast Beef Tacos in a gentler form, giving the meat layers of flavor, instead of just the taco seasoning mix.  I’ve also noticed that ground beef, while nice, doesn’t have the flavor of a good piece of roast beef.  Shredding the roast beef gives it a fantastic texture that you don’t find with the ground version, giving you a little more to savor with Pulled Roast Beef Tacos.

Leftover Makeover: Pulled Roast Beef Tacos for Now or Later

Leftover Makeover: Pulled Roast Beef Tacos for Now or Later

  • 1/2 onion, diced

  • 1 C sour cream
  • 1 C shredded cheddar
  • 1 C guacamole (optional)
  • taco sauce

Instructions

  1. Shred the leftover roast beef with a fork, discarding any fat.
  2. Place the meat in a sauce pan and stir in the seasoning mix and water. Heat gently until simmering.

Freezing Pulled Roast Beef Tacos

Another amazing thing about Pulled Roast Beef Tacos is that you can freeze the cooked meat for later meals!  If you have a large Crock-Pot that you aren’t utilizing for a meal, think about picking up beef on sale and making it up for taco meat.  All you need to do is thaw the meat overnight in the fridge and heat it up!  Dinner is ready when you are and is tasty and healthy.

 

1 lb leftover roast beef

1 packet taco seasoning mix

water

6-8 soft or crispy taco shells

1 tomato, diced

1/2 onion, diced

1/2 head iceberg lettuce, shredded

1 C sour cream

1 C shredded cheddar

1 C guacamole (optional)

taco sauce

 

Shred the leftover roast beef with a fork, discarding any fat.

Place the meat in a sauce pan and stir in the seasoning mix and water.  Heat gently until simmering.

Place meat into a taco shell.  Top with tomato, onion, lettuce, sour cream, cheese, and guacamole sauce.  Add taco sauce over the top.

Enjoy!

 

Add to your leftover makeover list and make some Pulled Roast Beef Tacos!

I was hankerin’ for some Southwest Crock-Pot Tacos, but I didn’t want the same old dry seasoning packets that I normally use.  Something fresh and tasty was in order.  So, I went off to the store in search of something new.  Boy, did I find it!  Frontera New Mexico Taco Skillet Sauce!  I was looking for beef tacos, but the sound of the chicken seasoning with roasted tomatoes and mild red chile was too good to pass up.  Why did it have to be just for chicken?  I’m not one to think inside the box, so two pouches of this interesting sauce made it home with me for Southwest Crock-Pot Tacos.

Double Cooking Makes Southwest Crock-Pot Tacos Flavorful

I had half a beef tip roast in the freezer that was a perfect fit in my smaller Crock-Pot.  I was sure that paired with the sauce, it would be an amazing dinner.  I let it cook all day, shredded the beef, then let it simmer again in the juices for about an hour.  Southwest Crock-Pot Tacos is the best taco dinner I’ve ever had!   The sauce was mild, with a faint bit of heat at the back of your tongue.  I now have a new favorite taco seasoning!

Convenience Items Make Southwest Crock-Pot Tacos Even Easier

Top this meat with your favorite taco fixings for an awesome dinner.  Many of the fixings you can get at the store pre-chopped, for a super-easy dinner in a jiffy.  Check the produce section of your favorite grocery store for chopped tomatoes, onions, pico de gallo, and even lettuce.  Take advantage of the convenience items to make your dinner faster to spend more time with your family.
