(Clean out your Fridge) Taco Stromboli

I have a few recipes that are excellent for using up leftovers. This is a great one I came up with just for that purpose…
This recipe is very flexible, you can pretty much use whatever you have leftover in your fridge. Beans (any kind, even re-fried), rice, onions, peppers, corn, chicken, beef or pork. Salsa, cream cheese, plain yogurt, shredded cheese. The list goes on…
These are the ingredients I used in this Stromboli:
Thin and crispy refrigerated pizza dough
Leftover ground beef
Plain Greek yogurt
Here is how I made the Taco Stromboli (almost the exact same way I made my Ham and Cheese and Leftover Meatloaf Stromboli.)
Throw all your ingredients in a bowl and mix it up!
Don’t forget the seasonings:
Lay out the pizza dough and spread your filling mixture out evenly. Top the filling with a bit more cheese.
Roll it up and place it on a greased cookie sheet, seam side down. Using a serrated knife, cut a few slits in the top to reduce pressure when cooking. Cook in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, you may want to cover it with foil to prevent further browning then cook for another 5 to 15 minutes.
I will be linking up to some of the linky parties listed here.

What a great idea and a great combination of flavor! Hope you have a Very Special Week End and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
Come Back Soon!
That is SUCH a good idea!!! I've done that with Pizza too, but hadn't even thought of tacos. Thanks! 🙂
This sounds fantastic!! I saw you over at Full Plate Thursday and can't wait to try this with my family!!
This is brilliant! We've made taco pizza before, but I never thought of just rolling it up and making stromboli! It looks so yummy too!
oh YUM… wish I had this in my kitchen right now.
I've seen taco in many different ways, but can't remember seeing it as Stromboli. It looks and sounds very good. Just a unique new way for an old recipe. I also love Greek yogurt! Thanks for sharing you creative inspiration at Sunday's Best Par.tay!
This sounds delicious! I love using Greek yogurt in dishes like this.
Love this! Looks super yummy. My mother-in-law use to call leftovers when my hubby was a kid — must goes. Everything in the fridge went in to making some sort of meal to finish them off.
Terrific! The finished product looks wonderful. And the possibilities, as you suggest, are endless.
