Taco Roll Ups

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

From Family Fun. I adapted it a bit. Great for lunch boxes. Change the amount of seasoning based on your or your kids' preference. I also have a Chili Powder recipe that could be used in place of the storebought package. UPDATE: We finally tried this. These would be great for lunchboxes. Also great for getting extras, like onions, pepper, etc. in the kids. I had 20 oz. meat, added a little dried minced onion and bell pepper and used just under 1/2 C per roll. It ended up making 9 rolls. All but 1 child liked it (my picky one).

Easy, tasty dish for a hot summer's evening. I didn't bother to put the meat mixute in the blender so my roll ups came out more like fat burritos. THAT didn't matter to my family, they gobbled them right up. I added two tablespoons of cilantro to the salsa. I also gave everyone a ramekin of salsa on their plate to dip the roll up in as they were eating. Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Crumble the ground beef into a large skillet and brown over medium-high heat.
  2. When the meat is cooked (about 10 minutes), drain the fat.
  3. Add the taco seasoning, water, and corn; stir and simmer the mixture for 3 minutes.
  4. Turn off the heat and stir in the refried beans.
  5. To give the filling a smooth consistency, pour the beef mixture into a blender or food processor. With 4 or 5 short pulses, eliminate any large chunks from the mix.
  6. For each wrap, heat a tortilla in the microwave for 10 seconds.
  7. Spread about 1/2 cup of the beef mixture evenly over it, then top with a layer of salsa and cheese. Roll it up and tuck in the ends.
  8. Tightly cover each sandwich in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Cut in half at serving time. Or cut into 1 inch slices for appetizers.
