I have been going through my cooking magazines recently. I am trying to clip out just the ones that I use. Then I am putting them in a notebook. This will be much easier for storing and using in the future. Anyhow, as I was going through them, I came across a recipe that looked like my family might like it. I tried it, and we really liked it. So, I decided to share it. If you are looking for a new recipe to try, try this one!
Bean 'n' Beef Crescent Pie
1-1/4 pounds ground beef
1 envelope taco seasoning
1/3 cup salsa
1 tube (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent rolls
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup refried beans
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Mexican cheese blend or cheddar cheese
In a large skillet, cook the beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add taco seasoning and salsa; simmer, uncovered, until thickened. Meanwhile, unroll crescent roll dough. press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish; seal preforations. Spread cream cheese over the dough.
Stir the refried beans into beef mixture. Spoon over cream cheese layer. Bake, uncovered, at 375 for 20-25 min. or until crust is golden brown. Sprinkle with cheese; bake 5 min. longer or until the cheese is melted.
The recipe did not call for it, but I served it with additional salsa. We put some on top, and liked it that way.
