Ingredients

  • 1lb lean ground beef

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. 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.
  3. 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..
  4. Place your meat mixture into the pie dish and spread evenly, sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Bake in oven for approx. 10-12 minutes, checking often. Serves 6 at 8 freestyle sp or 7pp per slice.

    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.

    Couldn’t I just use Pillsbury Pie Crust instead?

        What if we used ground turkey? Would that lower the points?

          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™‚

    How “lean” is the meat you get?

      Reply Drizzle January 15, 2017 at 1:46 pm

      usually 95/5

    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.

    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..

  • Reply Nic August 1, 2017 at 5:51 pm

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

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle August 2, 2017 at 2:45 pm

      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?

      Reply Drizzle December 30, 2018 at 9:31 pm

      No I did not add in any water
