  6. sounds easy quick and very good. this is one to try

  7. Made this tonight and it’s a HIT! Hubby loved it (I did too!). Easy to make, quick to bake. Will make a few up ahead of time, freeze them and take camping with us. Super good.

  8. I made this & it was “ok”. We all thought it was dry. If I make it again I may try putting some extra salsa in there somewhere. Maybe on the burger. I’m not sure what made this dry on the bottom. Maybe the combo of the crust and the frito’s. It wasn’t bad it just needs a little more of something on the bottom layer so it isnt so dry.

  9. This has become a family favorite. My kids ask for it each week and are disappointed when we don’t have it.

  10. Any time I find a recipe that calls for the pilsbury crescent rolls or biscuits, I am instantly turned off.
    Could you use a ready made pie crust instead? Has anyone tried it that way? Or maybe use a thick tortilla or corn tostada instead?

  11. I am from New Mexico, where we eat frito pie all the time! Your recipe is nice and all but it’s missing something important. Green Chile! It’s not real without it.

  12. This was good, but I had a hard time getting the bottom crescents cooked. I had to flip it upside down to get them edible. I will cook the bottom crescents for 5-8 minutes before putting the meat mixture. Thanks for the recipe!

  13. What is crescent dough I don’t think it’s available in Australia what is substitute
