Taco Buns

I found myself craving Mexican food once again, but wanted something a little different.  So this is what I came up with.  They were simple to make and a huge hit with the family! Especially the daughter who is really sick of normal tacos.  She couldn't stop raving about them!
Taco Buns
Makes about 20 buns
bread or biscuit dough
1 pound hamburger
1 packet taco seasoning
1/2 cup onions, diced
1 small tomato, diced
1/2 cup olives, sliced
1-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.
Brown hamburger and onions. Drain if needed.  Mix in the taco seasoning and water according to the package directions.  Stir in the tomatoes and olives.  Flatten out a piece of dough and top with some shredded cheese and about 1 Tablespoon of the meat mixture.
Fold dough up around the mixture ans seal tightly.
Place on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from oven and rub the tops with butter.
This recipe is very versatile. You could add whatever ingredients to suit your family's tastes!

They were delicious!


  1. Those sound and look great. Can't wait to try them. I'm thinking, Not So Sloppy Joes, lol. Putting the sloppy joe mix in the middle.

  2. They look wonderful, Tiffanee. I make great homemade bread, but the last time I made buns, they could have been used as weapons, no kidding!

  3. Great idea! We made runzas (beef & cabbage buns) in March and LOVED it. I can imagine the goodness of a taco in those buns. Yum.

  4. Seriously! I want to come to your house for dinner! You make the best meals!!!!

  5. Love "sandwiches" like this. We made a similar recipe (runzas) with ground beef, onions, and cabbage several weeks ago, and they were so good!
