Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 pounds extra lean ground turkey
    1 envelope reduced-sodium taco seasoning mix
    2 (8 oz.) cans reduced fat crescent rolls
    1 (14.5 oz) can fat-free refried beans
    2 cups low fat shredded cheddar cheese or Mexican blend
    1 (14.5 oz) can diced no salt added tomatoes
    1 small jalapeno, deseeded and chopped
    1/2 cup sliced black olives (optional)
    1/2 cup green onions, chopped

Tips

This is wonderful for a main dish, served with a salad and some whole grain Spanish rice.

Cut them smaller for a great little appetizer too.

It's almost like that yummy Mexican layered dip...but you don't need the chips.


Directions

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Brown ground turkey and drain.

Add taco seasoning to the ground beef according to the package directions.

Unroll crescent rolls into rectangles. Place in ungreased 11 1/2 inch x 16 1/2 inch jelly roll pan or cookie sheet.

Press dough over the bottom and 1/2 inch up sides to form crust. Bake at 375 oven for 11 to 13 minutes or just until golden brown.

Microwave beans in a microwave safe bowl for 1 minute (or until warmed through).

Carefully spread beans over warm crust creating a thin layer.

Top with cooked beef mixture, sprinkle with cheese followed by tomatoes, black olives and green onion.

Return to oven for 3-6 more minutes until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.

Makes 12 main dish servings or 48 appetizers.


Serving Size: Makes 12 Squares

    The ingredients list calls for ground turkey, but the recipe mentions turkey AND ground beef. What was the nutritional info based on: turkey, beef, or both? Would the nutritional info change significantly if beef is used instead of turkey? If so, what would the nutritional info be? Thanks! - 10/20/13

    Awesome easy recipe that I'll be making again. I used Mrs Dash Fiesta-lime, instead of taco seasoning. I did not add water to the meat but, I might try a little next time when I mix in the seasoning. I also did not use olives on top and I used a fresh tomato instead of diced. - 5/4/13

  • Delicious, but next time I will only make half the recipe. We are a family of 5 . I cut it into the 12 servings indicated and we had a lot left over. I was tempted to eat so much more because it was so good. I will remember this recipe next time I need to take something to a potluck - 7/22/14

    Not so good. Fine if you need an artificial pizza fix, but there are so many better alternatives! - 7/22/14

    SHASHEE71 didn't put in 2 cans of rolls (16 servings) only 1 (8 servings). If you adjust this the calories will be 253 per serving, not 193. We tried anyway and subbed 93% lean beef, regular crescent rolls and regular cheese (didn't change calories much), and whole family enjoyed. Will make again. - 1/30/14

    Made this tonight! Omitted jalapeno and black olives, and used fresh tomato instead of canned. I also mixed spices together to make the taco seasoning instead of getting a packet (forgot!). Absolutely delish! This dish is absolutely going into my recipe book and will make regular appearances - 12/1/13

    I used hamburger. This was a perfect meal to serve to my son's family for dinner. I was able to cut small pieces for the toddlers. They loved the cheese and black olives. The adults added light sour cream and jalapenos. - 10/29/13

    I use this a lot but not with this marvelous topping. It works great with my other toppings but this has to have much better nutritive value. Thanks for the ingredients list. - 10/20/13

    I make my own beans and use fresh seasoning instead of the packaged to try and cut down on the sodium. I also prefer using ground chicken breast instead of the turkey that I grind myself. - 10/20/13
