Absolutely delicious! I did change up a couple of things though. I used seasoned taco turkey meat instead of ground beef. I used fat free milk instead of 2% milk. I also used egg whites instead of eggs. I also used reduced fat cheddar cheese and light sour cream instead of normal cheese and sour cream. It came out perfect and no one was the wiser!! Family loved it and I saved numerous calories. Love, love, love it.
I love it! this is a great base recipe. I’ve had my own variation for years and never thought to use crescent rolls – what a unique idea. I do see where some might not like the though of a sweet roll in a savory dish – but I’m a little disappointed at the negative reviews. if you see a list of ingredients that doesnt appeal to you and dont make the dish – please dont review it. 2. If you see a list of ingredients that doesnt appeal to you and you make the dish knowing you’re going to hate it – why bother? 3. If you don’t like chips, or think something is too much – use less. Each recipe is made for a particular taste.
5 8″ flour tortillas
1 lb. ground beef
1 16 oz. can refried beans
2 T. taco seasoning
1/4 C. water
1 jar salsa (I didn’t really measure, just used big spoonful’s)
2 C. shredded Colby jack cheese
2 green onions, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
In a skillet, brown the ground beef, breaking it up as it cooks. Drain the grease, add in the taco seasoning and water. Combine well and remove from heat. I used an 8″ iron skillet for mine, but use whatever you have that might work…Place a tortilla in the bottom of your pan, spread a couple big spoonful’s of salsa over the tortilla, spread some of the refried beans over the salsa, then some of the meat and top with some cheese. Repeat the layers ending with a flour tortilla on top (save some of the cheese for the top). Cover the dish with tinfoil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with the remaining cheese. Return to the oven, uncovered for 6-7 minutes or until cheese is nice and melted and edges of the tortilla are crisp. Remove and top with the green onions and tomatoes before serving. Slice it like you would a pie.
