This recipe was originally called 'Sensational Taco Pie'. Since I have to disagree, I'm dropping the 'Sensational'.
Don't get me wrong, it's a good recipe, and a super easy weeknight kind of dinner, but I think calling it 'sensational' is a but much.
Crescent rolls, taco seasoned ground beef, sour cream, shredded cheese and Frito's...as I said, simple to throw together, but pretty basic as far as flavor goes. There is however, a plus side to this...if you tell the kids there's Frito's in their dinner, they're probably gonna be a little more eager to eat (as Jesse was. He absolutely destroyed this...so I guess for him it was pretty sensational :)
I figure I'll start the week with something nice and easy since I have a few 'awesome-yet-pain-in-the-ass' recipes coming up. After having no one to cook for for three weeks I dug out some recipes from my Pinterest Dinner folder that have been collecting cyber dust due to the amount of time it takes to prepare them. They sure were good though, so I'm excited to pass them along.
Ok guys, have a great rest of your day and I'll see ya tomorrow!

1- 1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1 package taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup water
1 can sliced olives (4 oz)
1 can crescent rolls
1 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups crushed corn chips
1. Heat oven to 400.
2. In a large skillet brown ground beef until no longer pink. Drain and return to the pan. Add the taco seasoning, water and olives. Simmer 5 minutes.
3. Separate the crescent rolls into triangles and lay them in a greased 9" pie dish, placing the points toward the center of the dish. Press the seams together to seal, forming the crust.
4. Sprinkle 1 cup of the crushed corn chips onto the crust. Spoon meat mix over the top of the corn chips, spreading evenly.
5. Stir sour cream until smooth, then spread over meat. Top with shredded cheese and the remaining 1 cup of crushed corn chips.
6. Bake until the crust is golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
