School’s Fiestada


My husband asked me to make a fiestada like we used to have at school. I couldn’t for the life of me remember what that even was so I did some googling. BAM! Found it and I remembered. “Remembered” meaning I just remember the taste being like a taco and pizza flavor so I went for it.

Recipes with Rachel Fiestada

School’s Fiestada

Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 15 minutes | Total time: 25 minutes


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/3 cup taco seasoning
  • 2 cups marinara
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 roll of crescent dough sheet
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  • On a baking sheet, lay the crescent dough sheet down and cook according to the package instructions. Once it’s done, set it aside.
  • Adjust the oven to 450 degrees.
  • In a medium saucepan, brown the ground beef and pour in the taco seasoning. You’ll notice I do not mention to add water. Simply add the taco seasoning and stir until combined into the beef.
  • In a medium bowl, add the marinara, cumin and salt. Stir until combined.
  • Grab the crescent roll and cut it in two (not longways, you’ll want it to be two squares).
  • In a 9×9 casserole dish, set one piece of crescent on the bottom.
  • Add a couple spoonfuls of marinara and spread it over the top of the crescent.
  • Add the beef to cover the marinara.
  • Sprinkle one cup of cheese over the top.
  • Repeat the layers- crescent, marinara, beef and cheese.
  • Bake at 450 for 10-15 minutes.

XO, Rachel
