This Mexican casserole is absolutely packed with bold, cheesy taco flavor and plenty of melty cheese, but that's not even the best part. Not only is it simple to make (just 5 ingredients!) but it's also ready to put on the table in 30 minutes. Prepare to have no leftovers.

Ingredients

1
lb ground beef, cooked, drained
1
package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
1
can (11 oz.) whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, undrained
1 1/2
cups shredded Cheddar-Jack with jalapeño peppers cheese blend (6 oz)
1
can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet

Steps

  • 1 In 10-inch skillet, mix beef, taco seasoning mix and corn. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Spoon into ungreased 12x8-inch (2-quart) baking dish; sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese.
