Taco Pie

Just had to pass this AWESOME recipe on that we tried last night. It was very easy to make and everyone loved it! *Ü* BTW, this didn't only get thumbs up from the kids in our family, but thumbs up from children from 4 other families! I am sure you children will enjoy it too!!!

Taco Pie

1 (8 oz) package refrigerated crescent rolls (I used 2 and used a 9x13 & a 11x7 pan)
1 pound ground beef (I used a little over 2 pounds)
1 package taco seasoning mix
1 (16 oz) container sour cream ( I used about 1 1/2 containers)
8 ounce shredded Mexican style cheese blend
1 (14.5 oz) package crushed tortilla chips (I didn't measure this, I only crushed up a few @ a
time until I completely covered the top of the pie)

I also added a can of refried beans; which I spread on the baked crescent rolls before I began layering the ingredients.

Directions:

1. Preheat over to 350 degrees F
2. Lay crescent dough flat on the bottom of the baking dish and bake according to the package directions.
3. Meanwhile, brown the ground beef (I added a little crushed garlic to the meat) in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the taco seasoning and stir together well. When dough is done, remove from oven and place meat mixture on top (I first layered it with refried beans), then layer the sour cream and cheese, and then top off with the crushed nacho chips.
4. Return to oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 10 min, or until cheese has melted.

I also provide chopped up lettuce & tomato's, as well as some salsa to put on top of the pie. This was served with Mexican Rice.

The next time I make this dish, I will take a picture and post it here too. *Ü*

**I originally found this recipe at http://www.allrecipes.com/ , but I made some changes to our liking **
