  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup salsa of your choice
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 12 small flour tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Sour cream, for dipping


  1. Preheat and Prep: Begin by setting your oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper to ensure nothing sticks and clean-up is a breeze.
  2. Cook the Beef: Add your ground beef in a large skillet over a medium-high flame. Break it apart with your cooking utensil, letting it brown evenly. Remember to drain any excess fat to keep your taco pockets from becoming greasy.
  3. Season: Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the beef, following the packet’s instructions to ensure every bit of meat is packed with flavour. Once done, remove from heat and set aside for the flavours to mingle.
  4. Cheesy Mixture: In a separate bowl, whisk your cream cheese until it’s smooth and inviting. Stir in the salsa until the mixture is uniform. This creamy filling will add a delightful surprise inside your taco pockets.
  5. Assemble: Lay out a tortilla and spread a generous dollop of your cream cheese mix in its heart. Add a helping of your seasoned beef and sprinkle some cheddar cheese on top. Fold the tortilla like a burrito, tucking in the sides to keep all that goodness inside.
  6. Bake: Arrange your taco pockets on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with melted butter for a golden finish and sprinkle a pinch of cheese for extra indulgence. Bake for about 15 minutes or until you see them turning a delicious golden brown.
  7. Serve: Let them cool slightly before serving. Pair with a dollop of sour cream or your favourite taco toppings for an added layer of flavour.
