Beefy Nacho Crescent Bake

Who would have thought putting taco meat inside of a crescent roll would be good!!??

I loved, loved, loved this.  (photo taken by Caleb!!!).

I was cleaning out one of my drawers and found a little magazine cookbook and stumbled upon this    recipe and let me tell you, it was well worth it.

Put this along side some home made guacamole and this was a hit with the kids alone!!


Here’s what you need to make this:

1    pound lean ground turkey
1/2    cup chopped onion
1/4    teaspoon salt
1/8    teaspoon black pepper
1    tablespoon chili powder
1    teaspoon ground cumin
1    teaspoon dried oregano
1    can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed nacho cheese soup, undiluted
1    cup milk
1    package (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent roll dough
1/4    cup (1 ounce) shredded Cheddar cheese
Chopped fresh cilantro
Salsa (optional)

I had half of a pan of taco meat left over so next time making this I would use two tubes of the crescent rolls (you would need two cans of soup as well).

Here’s how:


Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray 13X9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Season beef and onion with salt and pepper. Brown beef and onion in large skillet 6 to 8 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring to break up meat. Drain fat. Stir in chili powder, cumin and oregano. Cook and stir 2 minutes; remove from heat. Stir together soup and milk in medium bowl; pour evenly into prepared dish.
Separate crescent dough into 4 rectangles; press perforations together firmly. Roll each rectangle to 8X4 inches. Cut each rectangle in half crosswise to form 8 (4-inch) squares.
Spoon about 1/4 cup beef mixture into center of each square. Lift 4 corners of dough up over filling to meet in center; pinch and twist firmly to seal. Place squares in prepared dish.
Bake, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes or until crusts are golden brown. Sprinkle cheese over squares. Bake 5 minutes or until cheese melts. To serve, spoon soup mixture in dish over each serving; sprinkle with cilantro, if desired. Serve with salsa, if desired.
