moving right along…


Steve is having a hard time dealing with doggie diapers and all that entails, SO, I promised I would give him something else to look at and think about it since he missed out on our dinner yesterday evening. It’s a good thing too since there were just scrapings left!

I’ve written before about a friend of mine who comes for coffee every once in awhile and we just sit and exchange recipes. It is therapy for both her and me as we are always looking for a “new” recipe to try for our families—especially as the school year begins. Desserts and entertaining are really what we like to get together for, but the family card usually sneaks in because it is something we definitely NEED!! Good, quick, easy meals that our kids will eat. Here is one of them that will be added into the rotation for our upcoming school year. I revised the way I did this just a bit.

Taco Pie

Press a tube of crescent rolls into an extra large pie plate which has been greased or sprayed to form a crust.

Crush Nacho Cheese Doritos to equal a cup and layer over crescent roll crust.

Meanwhile, brown 1 lb hamburger with onion. Drain.

Add 1 can tomato sauce (I used tomato soup because it’s what I had on hand–worked great!)

Add 1 pkg of taco seasoning of choice

Bring to a boil and let simmer for 5 min.

Top crushed doritos with meat mixture.

Next add a shredded Mexican cheese (as much as you’d like) on top of meat mixture.

Then 1 cup sour cream on top of cheese.

Finally, add another cup of crushed doritos.

Bake in 350 degree preheated oven for 20-25 min until bubbly and edge of crust beginning to brown.

My kids were all over it! Granted, two of them had just come home from a day of vball and cheer practices and they were starving. But, overall it was a hit!! Definitely an add-on to our Mexican night rotation. Wondering if you could have this assembled and in the fridge in the morning and take out to bake for dinner? THAT would be the ticket. I’m trying that next time.

That better, Steve?
