Ingredients:  
1 lb ground beef
1 pkg. crescent rolls
8 oz sour cream
8 oz. shredded cheese (I use a bag of Mexican blend - we like cheese)

1/2 c. water

crushed fritos

Directions:
Directions:
Brown and drain ground beef, add the taco seasoning, water, and salsa. Stir everything together. Line a 9 in pie plate with the crescent rolls (just unroll them and press into the pan like pie crust). Put 1 cup of crushed fritos in the bottom, then the taco mixture. Spread the sour cream over the meat and then put the cheese on top. Crush a couple more handfuls of chips over the top of the cheese. Bake at 350 for 20 min or until the crescent rolls are done. Serve with taco toppings of your choice.

Todd's Grandma Dodds gave me this recipe when we got married. You can leave the salsa out if you don't care for it, your filling will just be drier. You can substitute Doritos or Tortilla chips for the Fritos but I think that Fritos stay the crunchiest!
