I must admit, I am a bit bummed that my hometown Chicago Bears won’t be going to the Super Bowl, but I can still be excited about the game day food!  Isn’t there just something fun about the cheesy, spicy, dare I say greasy fare associated with football?  It’s one of those days where calories don’t seem to matter and we all just indulge and have a good time!

This dish is one of my favorites to make for a crowd.  It is perfect for watching football or as an easy weeknight meal.  You can enjoy it on it’s own or with all of your favorite taco toppings.  Everything from lettuce and tomatoes to salsa and guacamole!  Have fun and make it your own.

taco pie slice


1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
8 ounces tomato sauce
1-1/4 oz package taco seasoning mix
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2.25 ounce can sliced ripe olives, drained
8 ounce can crescent roll dough
2 cups coarsely crushed Fritos corn chips, divided
1 cup sour cream
4 ounce can chopped green chiles
1-1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Optional:  Salsa, avocado slices, sour cream, cilantro

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is browned; pour off any accumulated drippings.  Stir in tomato sauce, seasoning mix, cumin, oregano, and olives.  Unroll crescent roll dough to cover bottom of ungreased 9-by-13-inch pan, gently patting the perforated seams of dough together.  Sprinkle 1 cup of the crushed fritos on top of dough.  Spoon on meat mixture.  Stir together sour cream and green chiles; spread over meat mixture.  Sprinkle 1 cup remaining fritos over sour cream; top evenly with cheddar cheese.  Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until crust is cooked.  Serve with optional ingredients, if desired.  Serves 6-8.
