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

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare dough per instructions on the bag. I use the shortcut method, it works really well.
  2. About an hour before dough has completely risen, begin to brown ground beef in a large pan, and drain well.
  3. Add Old El Paso Taco seasoning per package ingredient directions.
  4. Add 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.
  5. Roll out dough and cut to about 5" squares. If you use Rhodes rolls you can do them individually.
  6. Place about 1/3 cup of meat mixture into square and top with cheese.
  7. Pull edges of dough around filling and pinch to close.
  8. Place on a large sprayed baking sheet, pinched side down. Bake at 350°F 30-35 minutes.
  9. Once cooled, wrap in foil and freeze. Reheat in the microwave.
