In 12-inch skillet, cook ground beef, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper over medium-high heat 7 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, or until no longer pink; drain. Reduce heat to medium-low; add cream cheese, shredded cheese, paprika and corn. Stir until well blended; set aside.
  • 3 Line large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Separate dough into 8 triangles; press each into 4 1/2 by 7 1/2-inch triangle.
