  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning mix
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives (optional)
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • Shredded lettuce (for serving)
  • Additional salsa and sour cream (for serving)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the Oven:
  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  1. Cook the Ground Beef:
  • In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until browned. Drain any excess fat. Add the taco seasoning mix and water, stirring to combine. Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and set aside.
  1. Prepare the Crescent Rolls:
  • Unroll the crescent rolls and separate them into triangles. Arrange the crescent roll triangles in the prepared baking dish with the points of the triangles facing the center. Press the dough to cover the bottom and sides of the dish, sealing any perforations.
  1. Layer the Ingredients:
  • Spread the cooked ground beef mixture evenly over the crescent roll crust. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheddar cheese and half of the shredded Monterey Jack cheese over the beef.
  1. Bake:
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the crescent roll crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  1. Add Toppings:
  • Remove the dish from the oven and spread the sour cream evenly over the top of the baked taco mixture. Spoon the salsa over the sour cream. Sprinkle with the remaining shredded cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese, sliced black olives (if using), diced tomatoes, and chopped green onions.
  1. Bake Again:
  • Return the dish to the oven and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  1. Garnish and Serve:
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro if desired. Serve with shredded lettuce, additional salsa, and sour cream on the side.
