Easy Taco Pizza

Easy Taco Pizza

We celebrate Taco Tuesday weekly in our house. But sometimes, I like to switch it up from your typical tacos.  Recently I made Taco Pizza and the entire family loved it! It’s super easy, and quick which makes for a great weeknight meal.

Check out my recipe below.

Easy Taco Pizza

Easy Taco Pizza

Ingredients:

  • Ground turkey or beef
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • 2 packages of refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
  • chopped lettuce
  • diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup Mexican blend cheese
  • Optional – black beans, avocado

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Roll out your crescent roll dough and lay it out on a greased cookie sheet, making the crust for your pizza dough and being sure to pinch the perforations.
  3. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. While your crust is cooling, mix the cream cheese and sour cream together until smooth.
  5. Brown your ground beef or turkey, adding the packet of taco seasoning.(You can have this done ahead of time too!) Then drain any liquid.
  6. Once the crust is cooled, spread the cream cheese/sour cream mixture over the crust.
  7. Layer the ground meat on top.
  8. Top with chopped lettuce, tomatoes, corn or any other toppings you desire. (We love to add black beans and avocado too!)
  9. Sprinkle with cheese.

You can enjoy this warm or cold! And for an added crunch, add some crushed nacho chips or Doritos (The way Dude Man prefers)

Tomato Spinach Tortellini Soup

Tomato spinach tortellini soup

I have been on a soup kick lately and this is one of my family’s favorites! Creamy tomato spinach tortellini soup is warm and comforting and perfect served with a big crusty piece of bread. Plus, I love the leftovers the next day for lunch!  (Tip – for leftovers, add a little more broth as the pasta soaks up much of the liquid).

I never measure when I cook, so I tried my best to get you guys the correct measurements 🙂

Nicolle’s creamy tomato spinach tortellini soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes (28 oz)
  • 4 cups of vegetable broth
  • 4 cups of baby spinach
  • 2 bags of frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp fresh basil chopped
  • Crushed red pepper, to taste
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, to taste

 

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, heat 2 Tbsp olive oil. Add garlic and onions, cooking down until the onions are translucent.
  2. Stir in crushed tomatoes and vegetable broth and bring to a boil.
  3. Add spinach and tortellini, stirring until combined. Reduce to a simmer until tortellini cooked through.
  4. Top with heavy cream and stir until combined. Season with salt, pepper, fresh basil and crushed red pepper.
