Taco Bake

Ingredients:
1 4 oz. can crescent rolls
1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pkg taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup chopped lettuce
1 large tomato, chopped

Preheat oven to 375.  Spray 9" square baking pan with cooking spray.  Unroll dough carefully (do not separate into triangles).  Press seams together so dough is one piece.  Place dough in pan.  Bake about 5 minutes.  Remove from oven.

Brown ground beef;  drain fat.  Add taco seasoning and stir well.  Cook for about 5 minutes over low heat.  Spread meat evenly over baked crust.  Spread sour cream over meat.  Sprinkle with shredded cheese.  Bake 15 - 20 minutes or until crust is browned and cheese is melted.  Top with lettuce and tomato.

Side Dish Suggestion:

Spanish Rice

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups cooked white rice (brown rice can be used but alters the taste somewhat)
1 small onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup water
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 small green pepper, diced
salt and pepper, to taste

Melt butter in large skillet and saute onion and green pepper.  When softened, add the rice and saute for about five minutes or until rice is slightly browned.  Stir in remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.   Let it boil for about five minutes;  stirring often.  When most of the water is boiled off, remove from the heat, cover and let it sit for 5 minutes.
