  • Summary

    This is a comfort food recipe that's perfect for everything from tailgating to holiday parties to a weeknight dinner the whole family will love. Your favorite taco ingredients are baked into this loaded, juicy, and perfectly savory pie. Rather than using taco shells, I used a tube of crescent rolls that I unrolled and pressed into a pie dish to form the crust. Add crushed corn tortilla chips, juicy ground beef and tomatoes, sour cream, more chips, and loads of glorious cheese before baking until the cheese is lightly golden browned. The recipe is very flexible and I selected low or no sodium where possible.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound lean ground beef (I used 85% lean)
    • one 1-ounce packet taco seasoning (I used reduced sodium)
    • one 14.5-ounce can petite diced tomatoes (I used no salt added)
    • one 8-ounce tube crescent rolls
    • 3/4 cup crushed corn tortilla chips + 1/2 cup crushed corn tortilla chips
    • 12 ounces (1 1/2 cups) sour cream (I used lite)
    • about 6 ounces shredded Mexican cheese blend, or your favorite cheese
    • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped for garnishing
