What you need (for my version!):
- 1lb ground beef
- 2 containers Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
- 1 can refried beans
- 160z container sour cream
- 1 jar salsa
- 1 bag shredded cheese (I used a Mexican four cheese mix)
- 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
- 1 taco seasoning packet
- shredded lettuce
- more salsa/taco sauce/whatever you enjoy!
Put the crescents in the oven at 375 degrees for about 8-10 minutes. That way it will be less doughy. Next you get started on the ground beef. Brown it and drain some of the grease. Pour in the BBQ sauce and the taco seasoning.
Then mix it all up and let it simmer for a few minutes.Then you begin the layering process. Spread the can of beans on top of the partially cooked crescent roll crust. The ground beef mixture goes next and then the jar of salsa, all spread to cover the whole dish.
On top of the salsa you spread the sour cream, and top it all off with the shredded cheese.
Then it goes back into the oven for about 12-15 more minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the crust looks deliciously browned. (I increased the time on both the first and second baking by a few minutes. I found the crust still wasn't crispy enough.)
This is the final result! There was a TON of this, so it is definitely good for a big, hungry family. It's sort of like a Mexican (-American) lasagna. Yummy cheesy, meaty, melty layers.The topping options for this meal are never ending, but we went fairly traditional with some shredded lettuce, salsa, and (of course) more cheese.
