This was so great and so easy to make! I added onions for flavor. It was a great hit at my house! Husband and sons - ask for this this all the time. Add a salad and it is a fabulous easy dinner!
What a great idea - I'm always looking for new ways to use those ready-to-use pie crusts. We added some chopped onions and black olives to the rest of the filling ingredients. The best part - my disabled son was able to do almost all of the preparation once the meat was cooked - a great self-esteem building activity!
Made this for SuperBowl Sunday along with Mex rice and we loved it! I added a few sauteed onions but otherwise followed it to the letter and it was great. As a young child I lived in Bogata, Colombia and recall eating empanadas. This made me remember why I begged my Mom to make them often! It's so easy, quick, and there are so many possibilities with the recipe.
My family loved this! It was my hubby's turn to make dinner and he loved the ease of preparation. With 3 hearty eating sons, there wasn't a crumb left. Note, we paired this with the 5 layer mexican dip. Voila!!!
This was a great time saver idea. I made it this morning with the crescent dough, scrambled eggs, bacon, and shredded cheese. It's difficult to keep good breakfast ideas rolling, and this was a keeper.
We loved this recipe. Quick & easy. My kids wanted to try it again but instead make it like a bacon cheeseburger so we browned some onions with the hamburger, stirred in a little ketchup with a dab of mustard and added cooked & crumbled bacon. We used slices of Kraft American cheese and the kids loved this as well. Keep up the good work!
This was great! I made it over the weekend my family wanted me to make another one the next day.
I made this for dinner tonight and was wowed by a couple things. 1st- how fast it was to make, 2-how you can make this several ways and make it your own. 3rd- How darn good it was!! My kids loved it!! We topped it with sour cream and cilantro. I put the meat mixture down first, spread with cheese and on other pie crust, I topped it with a thin layer of refried beans and it was delish!!!! Will be making this quit often!!!
Easy to make. Easy to eat. I could see trying lots of alternatives with this. I added a 1/2 tsp of minced garlic while browning the meat and some fresh minced cilantro for that little extra flavor before topping with cheese.
I made this for dinner last night using the crescent roll dough and a medium salsa. The family loved it! Definitely one to make again.
