Taco Tuesday With a Twist

We all get tired of eating the same things but somehow don't miss out on "Taco Tuesday" Got you covered on both ends as well as quick, easy, affordable 15 minute meal. Here is a recap of how I enjoyed my Taco Tuesday!

If I must say so myself, this meal was a hit for the entire family- even Lenyx my incredible picky eater! This meal literally cost less than $10 bucks to make and this grass fed ground beef from my recent Lidl haul was another hit! Did you see all the stuff I got for only $45?! 

Love this recipe because it helped utilize the extra lettuce, sour cream, and cream cheese I had in the fridge that definitely would have been devoured by the garbage.

Ok now lets get right too it!

Shopping List
1 pack Ground Beef (Lidl Grassfed sale $2.99 - get with it)
1 pack of Croissant rolls
4oz of cream cheese
Few Dollops of Sour Cream
Shredded Cheese of your liking

15 minutes or 4 great songs from your Lauren Hill Station by Alexa and you're done. 

Started by spraying my baking sheet with some non stick spay and rolling out the 2 rolls of  croissants. As you can see I pinched them together and honestly that's probably not a necessary step but I felt savvy doing it. Placed them side by side to create a rectangle like a flatbread style pizza. Popped it in the oven on 350 degrees and began cooking my ground beef on medium. 

Yes I use Taco seasoning obviously but yes I also you salt, garlic, and pepper. Now while this is doing it's thing I am frequently stirring but chopping my tomato, picking some fresh lettuce from a salad mix I had, and then I combine my 3 or 4 dollops of sour cream in a bowl with my 4 oz of cream cheese. 

I take my time to make sure this is well combined and no large chunks throughout. 

I pull out what is now my golden crust! 

Once my ground beef is browned, I drain all the excess fat, add my pack of Taco seasoning and about 3/4 cup of water. I stir it up to perfection obviously and let it simmer for just a few minutes. Then I drain off all other excess fats/liquids.

Now it's time for layers. Starting with my cream cheese/ sour cream as a base then building out with my ground beef, cheese and whatever your tummy and diet so desires. Load the dishwasher, make a margarita, call the kiddos and husband to the table and you're done. 

I will tell you this is so yummy and surprisingly the cream cheese/sour cream was an added boost. I was 100% unsure of these ingredients at first. Share your Taco Pizza with me. What other non-traditional pizzas do you make for your family?
