      Based on previous reviews I baked the bottom of the casserole for 15 minutes before adding the filling. I browned, drained, and rinsed the ground beef, then added the taco seasoning and onion. After adding the salsa, I decided to omit the tomatoes. 10 oz is a lot of cheese. I used about 5 oz which still seemed like a lot. Put most of it under the top layer. I baked it for 15 minutes, then added the remaining cheese to the top and baked for another 5 minutes. This was a good and quick weeknight meal. Thanks for sharing.

      I did like Nimz suggested, I baked the crescent dough in the bottom first for at least 15-20 minutes. The taste was great but we didn't care for the tomatoes. And another time maybe I'll put all the cheese on top and not under the second layer of crescent dough. Thanks Erin :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game

      I think the flavors in this dish was great but I did not care for the crescent rolls because the bottom layer didn't cook even though I cooked it for 25-30 minutes. It was gooey. I added a little cheddar on the top the last 5 minutes of baking. If I make this again, I'll brown the bottom layer before adding the meat mixture to solve the problem I had. Thanks for sharing.
