A friend shared the recipe with me, and I've prepared it monthly ever since. The crust is made from refrigerated crescent roll dough. While the ground beef is browning, I simply press the dough into a baking dish. Guest always comment on the tasty crust as well as the zesty filling and crunchy topping.—Patricia Eckard, Singers Glen, Virginia

"This was good and easy to make. I made up the taco mixture last night so it was even quicker to put together today. I did use two packs of taco seasoning as one didn't give the meat enough flavor for us. I also cooked the dough 10 minutes before adding the taco meat. I added the meat and cooked the remaining 15 minutes. I then added the cheese and let it melt and then added the sour cream and lettuce but not putting it back in the oven. I let everyone put chips on their serving if they wanted too. Everyone liked this as it was something different. Will make again."

"Great start. I bake the crust 10 minutes first. Then put a layer of refried beans before adding the chips. Then put the meat mixture. I added a layer of green chiles for a little heat. Then finished with the sour cream, cheese, and chips. Baked another 15 to 20 minutes. Was very good with the changes."
