Personal Notes:
I use 2 cans of Pillsbury crescent dinner rolls as I have a hard time covering my pie dish with just one. I have also crushed up Doritos and sprinkled them on top of the crescent rolls to help absorb some moisture. I personally enjoy it without the Doritos, but it's an option if you want to try it! Enjoy with a Margarita!
