I made this for my family and I can never make enough of them. They always want more.

My husband LOVES these... when we moved I had some in the freezer to cook up real quick for a quick lunch and everyone was asking for the recipe. I used 1.75 ground beef and a whole cup of salsa and added about 1/4 cup more cheese these are great with some sour cream lettuce and tomatoes on the side!

I have made these several times now instead of just ordinary tacos and my son loves them. I add double the amount of salsa that the recipe states, 1/2 can of the green chilies, & take out the hot sauce. Also, I actually have enough meat mixture every time to fill 4 packages of crescent rolls instead of the 3 in the recipe. They are very tasty and served with a nice salad on the side, it's a great dinner!!
