Beef n' Bean Taco Casserole

Tried this one tonight, and it was a hit.


  • 2 cans of crescent rolls, or 2 pie crusts, depending on the kind of crust you want.  
  • 1 lb. ground beef, browned w/ taco seasoning added
  • 1 (~15 oz) can refried beans 
  • 1/2 cup salsa, if desired
  • 8 oz. cream cheese (I used generic-brand reduced fat cream cheese and the taste was still excellent)
  • Shredded cheddar cheese 

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Brown meat & mix in water & taco seasoning packet according to packet instructions.  Once seasoned, stir in 1 can refried beans, and salsa if desired.
  3. Layer 9x13 casserole dish with either rolls or crusts, pressing with fingers to seal edges and to conform crust to dish.
  4. Use a spoon to spread the cream cheese to cover the bottom of the crust.
  5. Cover cream cheese with bean & beef mixture.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes @ 375 until crust is browned, then sprinkle top with cheddar cheese & put back in oven for 2-5 minutes until melted.
