I love these easy Cheesy Taco Sticks – soft, buttery, stuffed with taco meat and gooey cheese. Serve these with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole dip for dinner or lunch, even snacks. Whenever I make these, I always ask the kids to give me a hand. It’s super easy that even my kids can do it. Pizza in a form of breadsticks! How amazing is that? We are obsessed with these mouthwatering cheesy taco sticks. One bite and we instantly fell crazy in love!
1 pound lean ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning mix
1 tube refrigerated Pillsbury pizza dough
5 Colby jack cheese sticks cut in half
1/4 cup butter melted
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dry parsley
HOW TO MAKE EASY CHEESY TACO STICKS
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 425 degrees F.
Step 2: Using a non-stick cooking spray, grease a large baking sheet.
Step 3: Add the ground beef in a skillet. Cook over medium heat while stirring often until thoroughly cooked. Drain excess fat before stirring in the taco seasoning.
Step 4: Remove the skillet from the heat and set the seasoned ground beef aside to cool.
Step 5: Lay flat the pizza dough and slice halfway lengthwise. Then, cut both in 5 equal rectangles to make 10 triangles.
Step 6: Add the cooled taco meat on the centre of the rectangles and top with half of the Colby Jack cheese stick.
Step 7: Seal by rolling up the pizza dough over the meat and cheese. Pinch it close to make a breadstick.
Step 8: Transfer each taco stick on the prepared baking sheet.
Step 9: In a small bowl, stir the butter, garlic powder, and dry parsley. And lavishly brush the tops of the breadsticks with the butter mixture.
Step 10: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Step 11: Remove from the oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!
