Ingredients
  

  • 1 pack of Pillsbury reduced fat crescent rolls
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2/3 cup of salsa
  • 1 package of taco seasoning
  • 2/3 cup light grated cheese
  • *Optional to top with lettuce tomatoes and onions etc

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Heat up your ground beef in a frying pan on stove, once cooked drain fat. Add salsa and taco seasoning, I only use half the pack of seasoning so it is not to strong tasting. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Place your crescent rolls into a 9 inch pie dish, making sure to cover all areas. This may require breaking up some of the rolls to fill in spaces. Pre-bake crust for 5 minutes to avoid the middle not cooking through..
  • Place your meat mixture into the pie dish and spread evenly, sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake in oven for approx. 10-12 minutes, checking often. Serves 6 at 8SP on all 3 MyWW programs or 7pp per slice.

  1. I came across your site after recently joining WW. I tried this dish tonight, and it was yummy! My teenage son loved it as well, so that’s always a plus! Thanks for posting easy and WW-friendly recipes. I see several that I can’t wait to try.

  2. This was amazing!! My family (including 3 picky kids) devoured it. We may have to make 2 next time. ? Thanks for the recipe!

      That’s awesome, I love when picky kids eat my recipes (I have one of those lol) so glad you all enjoyed it πŸ™‚

          Yes since FF ground turkey is zero points, I think it’s 15 or 16 for the ground beef (don’t have my App in front of me to check) so you’d need to do the math or build the recipe in your WW App πŸ™‚

  3. I love the taste, but my crust didn’t get done in the middle (even after pre-baking). Any tips?

      Hi Heather, sorry to hear this, the only thing I can pin it down to is different ovens vary, I never have an issue but a few others have.. You can either leave it in for longer when pre-baking it or increase the temp slightly

    First I want to thank you for all the wonderful WW friendly recipes! I have tried several and everyone has been a keeper (that means my husband loved them too). I made this today and added a layer of fat free spicy refried beans under the meat mixture. I know it added a few points but it was delicious.

  5. Love your site and Facebook page. Thank you so much for posting your recipes. It makes following WW so much easier. I’m addicted to your Taco Pie recipe. πŸ™‚

      Hi Kim, thank you for your kind words, so glad you love the recipes and yum I love the taco pie too πŸ™‚

  6. I made this recipe but unfortunately I had to cut it into 8 slices to get it to be 7 sp. 6 servings with reduced fat store brand crescent rolls and 92% lean beef was 10 sp. I may try making it with turkey next time to see if I can get the points down. 8 slices is pretty small.

      Hi Dayna, I use 95% lean beef, and some cheese vary in points depending what brand you buy..

  7. What size of the crescent rolls did you use? There were 2 different sizes.

    • Drizzle Reply

      I have only seen the one size near me, 8 regular sized crescents rolls in the pack, they might do a jumbo pack in which case you don’t want to use those

    Do I put in the water like the taco mix says or use the salsa liquid instead?

      Would this work with shredded chicken? I think that’s what I’ll try to make tonight?

  16. This was delicious. I used ground turkey so you know what the points would be for the blue plan?

    • Drizzle Reply

      So glad you enjoyed it πŸ™‚ Not of the top of my head but I think there is 17SP in the ground beef in total so probably 3 points less per serving
