Making the filling for this casserole is simple and it’s adjustable to your own taste. Although I prefer chicken, I used ground beef this time.

Beef casserole is great for dinner. It’s rich and generous meal. I added red and green bell pepper, corn and red bean. That goes so well with beef, at least to my taste.  Then I spiced it all up with Taco seasoning mix and mixed with salsa. WOW, the filling tastes great on its own. You can wrap it in tortillas and make delicious tacos sometimes.

But this time I wanted to make a casserole for dinner. So I take my favorite go-to ingredient-refrigerated dinner crescent rolls and made a crust for this Southwest Crescent Casserole.   I arranged crescent rolls as for the bottom crust and spread the filling. Then I top it with a mixture of sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese jut to make everything very rich and creamy. Finally I arranged another layer of crescent rolls as a crust on top.

Southwest Crescent Casserole turned out great, delicious and easy to make !It was a win-win situation!  My family asked me to add this recipe to my regular weekly meal plan. Since it’s simple and easy recipe and they liked it so much I don’t see why not, so I totally agree with them.
