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.
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.
