Whether it's Taco Tuesday, Fiesta Friday, or Margarita Monday, I'm all in. Mexican food is probably my absolute favorite. I could eat it every day. Some of my favorite Mexican Recipes I keep on rotation are Chicken Fajitas In A Skillet,The Best Copycat Taco Bell Nacho Bell Grande, and Easy Fiesta Lime Chicken.
This Fiesta Taco Braid is spicy ground beef, refried beans, cheddar cheese, salsa, and any other toppings you'd like. All wrapped in a crescent roll. Yum.
Yes, you could definitely substitute ground turkey or chicken for beef.
Yes, black beans are a great choice but be sure to drain well or they will make the dough soggy.
I would reheat in an oven or air fryer for 10-15 minutes. You could reheat in the microwave however it will stay crisp if you use the oven.
