Mexican Stromboli - Cass's Way

Cassie *


We all love Taco's in this house, especially my Son. So, I decided to try my hand at a Mexican / Taco Stromboli.

It turned out with just the right heat and taste that I had imagined.

There are many other things that could be added to this. I just used what I had on hand, as this was a last minute choice for dinner.

It really was tasty...the family loved it. Hope you do as well..Enjoy!!
