Taco Pie

This is a pretty fun take on tacos. The next time you have taco night with your family, try making a taco pie instead. You take a can of crescent rolls and press them into a pie pan and then layer on the beef, cheese and tortilla chips.  I used the garlic butter crescent rolls instead of just the plain crescent rolls and I think the garlic flavor helped make this pie even better. Once the pie comes out you can top it with your favorite Taco toppings. I recommend taco sauce. We didn’t have any in our house, and now I wish we did. It would have made this taco pie really good. I’d make this again. Maybe with some beans and corn inside the meat sauce next time.
