Taco Bake Recipe

You will need:

  • Large frying pan
  • 10″ Pie pan (or 9″ square pan)


  • 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (Pillsbury works great!)
  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 3/4 cup Thick ‘n Chunky salsa
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
  • Chopped onions, as desired
  • Green and black olives as, desired
  • Shredded lettuce, as desired
  • Diced tomato, as desired
  • Sour Cream and guacamole (optional)


Heat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll dough and separate into 8 triangles. Place in non-greased 10-inch pie plate and press over bottom and up sides to form crust.

In 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in salsa and taco seasoning mix; simmer 5 minutes. Spoon meat mixture in crust-lined pan; sprinkle with cheese.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until crust is deep golden brown and cheese is melted. Top with lettuce, tomato, onions and olives and serve.
