Seasoned ground beef is wrapped in pizza crust and combines Italian and Mexican flavors in this recipe.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Cook ground beef in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 5-7 minutes or until beef is browned. Drain off fat. Stir in 1/4 cup water and 1 tablespoon taco seasoning. Continue cooking 2-4 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat; keep warm.
Cut 5 cheese slices into 4 strips each; set aside. Coarsely chop remaining 2 cheese slices. Combine chopped cheese, crust mix and remaining 1 tablespoon taco seasoning in small bowl; stir until well mixed. Add remaining 1/2 cup hot water; stir until well mixed. Cover; let stand 5 minutes.
Divide dough into 4 equal pieces. Roll out each piece of dough on lightly floured surface into a 6-inch circle. Place about 1/3 cup beef mixture onto bottom half of each circle of dough to within 1/4 inch of edge. Top each with 1 teaspoon cilantro and 5 strips cheese. Fold other half of dough over filling; press edges to seal.
Place calzones onto greased baking sheet. Bake 16-20 minutes or until crust is light golden brown. Serve topped with lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream.

I've made this a few times. My family really likes it. I didn't give it 5 stars though because while the flavor is good I personally find it dry I think it needs a sauce or something to bring in moisture. My family doesn't seem to care though, they keep asking for it so if they're happy, I'm happy.
Made this for my son and grandson and they loved it. Calzones are very filling. Cilantro I used Knorr's mini cubes of cilantro.

Once the temperature drops a few degrees, I’m in full-on fall foods mode. Pumpkin bars, apple crisp, cranberry bread…you name it, I’m making it. However, most of it revolves around sweets. Why doesn’t dinner get a fair chance?
