Frito Chili Pie Crescent Ring

I ran across this recipe and did “my thing” to it to spice it up a bit.  And, with the meat/bean mixture left over, I did a tortilla stack for dinner last night.  Super easy, quick and economical!!!

I started with this:

then laid out my crescent rolls in a fan, like this:

I layered my bean/ground beef/roasted tomato mixture, and covered it with a mix of mexican-style shredded cheese.  Topped off with fritos and folded the pointy ends of the rolls over, tucking them underneath.  Brushing the top of the rolls with a beaten egg will help it brown nicely, with a very shiny pretty appearance.  Voila:

We dunked it in a little low fat sour cream and it was a crunchy, gooey delight!

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 3 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 can roasted dice tomatoes, juices drained
  • 1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tubes crescent roll dough
  • 1/2 – 3/4 c. shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1 small bag Fritos (or other corn chips)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  1. Brown ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add taco seasoning and chili powder. Use a wooden spoon to break up meat and mix in seasonings. Cook until browned and drain excess juices.
  2. Add roasted diced tomatoes and pinto beans and mix to combine. Set aside.
  3. Unroll crescent roll dough, separating each triangle. Arrange in a sunburst pattern, with pointy ends of the triangles facing outward (the base of the triangles should overlap).
  4. Spread ground beef mixture over triangle bases, forming a ring. Sprinkle cheese on top of meat, then top with Fritos, preferably crumbled.
  5. Fold triangle tips over filling (there will be gaps where meat and cheese peeks out between crescent roll triangles). Brush the top of dough with beaten egg.
  6. Bake until dough has turned lightly golden and cheese has melted, about 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
