An easy family dinner (you can even make it the night before) or a tasty appetizer. Kids love this recipe and the cream cheese/sour cream “sauce” and spicy taco flavor are a hit with adults too.
Serves: serves 6
•2 tubes (8 oz each) refrigerated crescent rolls
•1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
•1 cup (8 oz) sour cream
•1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
•1 envelope taco seasoning mix
•1 medium tomato, chopped
•1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
•1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
•1 cup shredded lettuce
1.Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2.Unroll the crescent roll dough and lay out in the ungreased cookie sheet. Pinch the perforations together to seal. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool.
3.In a small bowl, mix the softened cream cheese and sour cream. Use a whisk to remove any lumps. Spread over the cooled crust. (I let my crust cool for around 20 minutes.) Chill in the refrigerator.
4.Brown the ground beef and drain. Add taco seasoning packet and water, according to package directions. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
5.Sprinkle the ground beef evenly over the cream cheese layer. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese.
6.Cut into serving-size pieces and serve immediately or refrigerate.
