Runza Buns with a Mexican Flare

Sheila M


I tweaked a recipe from a friend to give it a Mexican flare. These are so awesome! They freeze great so I usually double the recipe so there are plenty on hand. If you like cabbage you will love these! Pictures are from Google Images.

1Prepare dough per instructions on the bag. I use the shortcut method, it works really well.

2About an hour before dough has completely risen, begin to brown ground beef in a large pan, and drain well.

3Add Old El Paso Taco seasoning per package ingredient directions.

4Add cabbage and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until cabbage cooks down but not totally limp. Mixture should be about 1/2 meat and 1/2 cabbage.

5Roll out dough and cut to about 5" squares. If you use Rhodes rolls you can do them individually.

6Place about 1/3 cup of meat mixture into square and top with cheese.

7Pull edges of dough around filling and pinch to close.

8Place on a large sprayed baking sheet, pinched side down. Bake at 350°F 30-35 minutes.

9Once cooled, wrap in foil and freeze. Reheat in the microwave.
