Taco Bake + Taco Salad

After looking through about a dozen recipes and trying to decide on a taco bake or a taco salad, I found this recipe for a taco bake and decided to make a combination of the two (sort of).


-1 lb. hamburger
-1 pkg. taco seasoning
-8 oz. sour cream
-1 pkg. crescent rolls (8)
-(1) 8 oz. can tomato sauce
-1 can diced tomatoes (optional)
-1 c. shredded cheese
-Dorito chips

*Instead of adding diced canned tomatoes to the taco bake, I cut up fresh tomatoes to top it with after it came out of the oven along with onion, lettuce and cheese.



  1. Brown hamburger and drain.
  2. Add taco seasoning, tomato sauce, tiny bit of water (I used the amount recommended on the taco seasoning), and diced tomatoes (Optional, I left these out) and let simmer.
  3. In a Glass 9 Inch x 13 Dish , press out crescent rolls and roll them to form crust
  4. Layer hamburger mixture, sour cream and then cheese.
  5. Crush about 3/4 of a bag of Doritos and put them on top. *If you happen to be snacking on this ingredient during the first 4 steps, I learned it’s hard to gage what 3/4 of the bag is based on what’s left… 🙂  Once it’s covered with a layer of chips, you know you’re set though.
  6. Bake at 350 for 30 min.
  7. Have diced tomatoes, onions, lettuce and shredded cheese available for the topping (this is the ‘taco salad’ part).
  8. Enjoy!
