1 pound ground beef (may use chicken)
1 package taco seasoning
½ cup water
1/3 cup green olives, sliced, optional
1 can crescent rolls
2 cup corn chips, crushed
1 cup (8-ounces) sour cream
1 cup mild cheddar or American cheese, grated
Shredded lettuce
Onions, chopped
Tomato, chopped
Jalapeño peppers, sliced or chopped
Taco sauce, optional

Brown ground beef; stir in seasoning mix, water and olives; simmer 5 minutes. Separate crescent dough into 8 triangles. Place triangles in ungreased 9X10-inch pie pan, pressing to form a crust. Sprinkle 1 cup corn chips over bottom of crust. Put meat mixture on corn chips. Spread sour cream over meat mixture; cover with cheese. Sprinkle with remaining corn chips. Bake at 375º for 20 - 25 minutes until crust is brown. Serve in wedges topped with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, onions and jalapeño slices, if desired. If casserole has been refrigerated, it will take longer to heat through and through, so lightly cover with aluminum foil and remove the last 5-10 minutes.
