Ingredients for the Taco Braid

  1. Crescent Dough
  2. Ground Beef (or Ground Turkey)
  3. Homemade Taco Seasoning
  4. Salsa
  5. Cheese

Crescent Dough: In the United States, ready-made crescent dough can be found in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store. You may opt for seamless crescent dough, perfectly suited for this recipe. However, if you can’t find crescent dough or prefer a completely homemade approach, pizza dough can serve as an alternative. Simply roll out an equivalent amount of dough as you would for a pizza and shape it into a rectangular form. You can explore my pizza dough recipe, which has garnered numerous favorable reviews and is a weekly staple in my household.

Homemade Taco Seasoning: I strongly recommend using my homemade taco seasoning, especially for recipes like this that call for a packet of taco seasoning. By preparing a generous batch using my recipe, you can substitute the packet with 3 tablespoons of the homemade seasoning. Crafting your own seasoning allows you to regulate factors like sodium content and spiciness. In my household, we follow the original recipe and utilize it on multiple occasions throughout the week.

Additional Toppings

While the Taco Braid can certainly stand alone, consider enhancing its flavors with some delightful toppings:

  1. Sliced Olives
  2. Chopped Lettuce
  3. Diced Tomatoes
  4. Pickled JalapeƱos
