Mexican Calzone

Everybody loves tacos!  They are hot, cheesy and crunchy.  However, they are also one of the messiest finger foods.  I’m one of those people who always stuffs the taco or burrito a little too full.  The end result is a drippy mess.  So when you’re in the mood for Mexican, and you don’t want to deal with sour cream and salsa hands, try these delicious Mexican Calzones!

For the calzone:

This is a quick and easy pizza crust recipe from Bisquick.  Simply mix together 1 1/2 cups Original Bisquick mix and 1/3 cups hot water.  Form the dough into a ball and roll out to desired thickness with a rolling pin.

Now for the fun part!  You can stuff the calzone with anything your heart desires.  Since I don’t have a lot of time on my hands, being a full-time college student, I used mostly canned or pre-made foods.  My calzone contains refried beans, Spanish rice, black olives, diced tomatoes, cheese, and jalepeños.

Once you have finished layering the stuffings on top of the dough, fold the circle in half and press the ends together with a fork.  If the dough does not stick together, brush a little water or egg wash along the inside edges.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes.  Garnish with sour cream and guacamole.  These babies cool down fast so be ready to eat it right out of the oven!
