This is truly a family fave and is perfect for a busy night of rushing to soccer, swimming lessons or scouts. I make it in the morning and just pop it in the oven when we get home. —Karen Latimer, Winnipeg, Manitoba

MAKES: 6 servings


  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 small sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons pickled jalapeno slices
  • Sour cream and additional salsa


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Unroll crescent dough and separate into triangles. Press onto bottom of a greased 9-in. pie plate to form a crust, sealing seams well. Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook chicken over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles; drain. Stir in taco seasoning, green chilies, water and salsa; bring to a boil.
  3. Spoon into crust; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  4. Top with lettuce, peppers, tomato, green onion and pickled jalapeno. Serve with sour cream and additional salsa. Yield: 6 servings.

"This is such a great and easy recipe. I love this recipe. Flavors go so well together. Ground turkey works well too."

"I like playing with recipes, that's why I don't like baking, this is so versatile you can use beef if you like. Either way I add 1 can of refried beans heated in a hot pan with some bacon fat for flavor and 1/4 cup or so of grated sharp cheddar. While the beans are hot and spread easily I put them on the crust first then add the beef or chicken then a can of drained sliced olives and top everything off with a good full cup of either grated pepper jack, sharp Cheddar or a combo of both. I adjust the seasonings to our tastes but you can use whatever you like. 2 or 3 diced Serrano peppers and some chopped onion added to the beef or chicken while it's cooking amps up the spice factor. I buy extra lean ground beef so I never drain it after it's cooked, you need some fat for flavor. I have used a pre baked pie crust in the past but the crescent dough gives it more of a puffy taco texture. Like another member noted, this makes 4 not 6 servings."

"This was so good! Very easy to make. I made it without jalapenos and green onions. More likely to serve 4, than 6."
