Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Taco Roll-Ups

It’s always a good thing when you can switch up a recipe, isn’t it? This is a fun twist on tacos. Eat these for dinner or use them as party food! If you don’t want to use ground beef, use some cooked, shredded chicken instead. IT Guy and I have these for our main meal and then I can throw a couple in his lunch the next day and he’s a happy guy. They re-heat in the microwave with no problem so having some on-hand for after school snacks is a great idea!
Taco Roll-Ups
1 tube refrigerated pizza dough
1 pound ground beef
1 - 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 package taco mix
Diced tomatoes, sour cream, salsa and guacamole for serving.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
In a skillet, cook ground beef then add taco seasoning according to package directions.
Roll your the pizza dough with the long side toward you. Press it out a little larger than it came out of the tube. You don’t want it TOO thin, though.
Spread taco seasoned beef onto pizza dough then sprinkle with cheese.
Roll up, starting at the long side.
Slice into 1 1/2 inch slices and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.
Serve with diced tomatoes, salsa, sour cream and guacamole.

Let's roll!

Cook the ground beef then add the taco mix according to the package directions.

Next open your pizza dough and press it out a little bigger than it comes out of the package. Not TOO thin, though.

Spread the cooked ground beef on top of the dough.

Then sprinkle with the cheese.

Start rolling from the long side of the dough. You can see my dough got a little thin in a couple of spots. Don't be like me.

Slice the roll-ups and place on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve with all the sides....salsa, sour cream, etc!
