So I've been keeping up with my new years resolution rather well and I'm very happy about that. In case you don't remember, it's to cook/eat at home at least 4 times a week if we're in town. And last week I found another new recipe I had to try. Well, actually 2.
1 pound beef (I like 80/20)
1 tablespoon of taco seasoning
3 tablespoons of water
1 cup of pace picante sauce (I used mild)
1 can 10 oz. enchilada sauce
1 box yellow corn taco sells (I used Ortega)
1/2 block (or you can add more) of Monterrey Jack cheese
1 bag of "Mexican" style cheese
Sour cream to top with
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Brown 1 pound of hamburger, drain the grease.
Add about 3 tablespoons of water. The recipe calls for a tablespoon of taco seasoning - I just sprinkle it all over the first layer of beef and then mix that all together. I added a cup of pace picante sauce and 1-10oz. can of enchilada sauce. Stir and let it simmer together. In a 9x13 pan I put a layer of hard taco shells (I broke them up to make a flat layer, you could use chips, but these are less salty). I added the meat mixture on one layer, then Monterrey jack cheese, and then 'Mexican cheese', and then repeated the layers. I didn't use the whole box of shells. I had about 3 leftover. It made about 3 layers of shells, meat, cheese. I then topped with the rest of the cheese. (I used half a block of Monterrey jack, and a whole bag of the Mexican style cheese). And then I baked it in the oven for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
Stuffed Sausage Crescents
This time I actually took pictures of my step by step process.
1 pound of Jimmy Dean sausage (I used regular)
1 tube of crescent rolls
1 8 oz. package of fat free cream cheese
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Brown your sausage, drain grease.
In a medium size bowl soften your cream cheese. Add in sausage to the cream cheese.
On a baking sheet, separate out your crescents into their triangles.
Add a generous scoop of the cream cheese/sausage mixture to each triangle.
Once you have the mixture on each triangle, fold over the top part of the crescent. I don't roll them because sometimes the middle part of the crescent doesn't bake right. Bake for about 15-17 minutes, or until golden brown.
