Mexi Meal Casserole

This is about a 30 minute meal and I LOVE fast! I’m always making casserole type dishes because I have a family of 5 to feed and meals like this make it a breeze.

The first ingredient you’ll notice is the crescent rolls. I also used these in my Cream Cheese Danish the other day and have found many more uses for them!! I did have to make some substitutions in the recipe because I only had a certain kind of the ingredient called for. The recipe calls for Taco seasoning but I only had chili seasoning which seemed to be just fine. It also calls for Mexican Velveeta but I only regular. Never-the-less, it was GOOD, FAST, and EASY!


  • 2 pounds ground beef, browned
  • 1 (10-ounce) can Ro-Tel tomatoes, OR 1 (16-ounce) jar of hot sauce
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 2 (8-count) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 (8-ounce) box Mexican Velveeta, sliced


Preheat oven to 400′.  Combine browned ground beef with Ro-Tel tomatoes, taco seasoning, and cheese; just kind of make sure the cheese is somewhat melted and set aside.  For a crust by pressing 1 can crescent rolls into bottom of lightly greased 9×13 pan.  Layer beef mixture on top of crust and place other can of crescent rolls on top.  Bake 15-20 minutes.  Serves 8:)

Combine the good stuff!
Meat, seasoning, ro-tel, and cheese!

Pour onto crescent rolls in baking dish.
Baking dish mixture:)

Cover with other can of crescent rolls!
Cover up to form crust layer.

Fresh from the oven!

Serve with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and perhaps even olives!! I hate olives though;)
Lettuce & Tomatoe

Yummy to the tummy!

    I think you’re turning this non-cooking mom into someone who can cook again! This is fast and easy which is just what I need. When you have brain fog you need these one dish meals that you can just add all the ingredients and put it in the oven.

    This is my kind of meal especially on a Mon! Easy to prepare and something I am sure my family will eat. I can’t wait until later in the summer when I have some of my homemade salsa to go with it.

    We made this last night. My dd and I liked it but my two boys thought it was too spicy (wimps). They are picky too. Next time I’ll just add mild salsa instead of Rotel. Oh, and one thought it was too cheesy. What planet is he from?

    sound good and easy. But i wonder if you have ever made is using an unprocessed cheese. Seems a bit unhealthy. but i guess you can’t always have fast and healthy! :)

    Looks delish and v. much an upside down version of my mexican pie. I’ll need to try your version with Velveeta & Taco seasoning vs. jar of salsa and shredded cheese. Love it! Thanks.
