  • PAM® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix
  • 1 can (10 oz each) Ro*Tel® Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained and divided
  • 2 pkgs (13.8 oz each) refrigerated pizza crust dough
  • 8 ounces Velveeta®, cut into 1/2-inch cubes, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray 2 large baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. Brown beef in large nonstick skillet over medium heat; drain. Return beef to skillet. Add taco seasoning mix and 1 cup tomatoes; mix well. Cook, stirring frequently, 5 minutes or until liquid is cooked off. Remove skillet from heat.
  3. Unroll 1 can of pizza dough onto lightly floured surface; press into 18x12-inch rectangle. Cut into 12 (6x3-inch) rectangles. Repeat with second can of pizza dough. Spoon beef mixture onto centers of dough rectangles, adding about 1 tablespoon beef mixture to each rectangle.
  4. Reserve 1/4 of the Velveeta® for later use; place remaining Velveeta® cubes over beef mixture. Fold all sides of each dough rectangle over beef mixture; press edges together to seal. Place, seam sides down, on baking sheets. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Combine remaining tomatoes and reserved Velveeta® in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until queso is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 1 minute.
  6. Serve nacho sticks warm with queso on the side for dipping.
