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.

How to Make Runza Buns with a Mexican Flare


  • 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.
