My go to meal for new mommies...

Whenever I hear of a family or friend who needs a meal (lately it's been all my friends who've had babies) this is my go to meal. It's simple, it's easy, it's not lasagna! One of my mom's best friends gave me this recipe for Taco Pie at one of my bridal showers and I've been making it ever since!

We look pretty cute with a baby right? Haha. Someday...
 Cast of Characters:
1 lb. Ground Turkey, Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, 1 cup crushed Taco Flavored Doritos (or Fritos), 1 packet Taco Seasoning, 8oz. Sour cream, Shredded Cheese
one. Cook ground beef until browned, add taco seasoning and 1/2 cup water, stir and let simmer for 5-10 minutes
two. Press crescent roll onto bottom of pie pan or casserole dish
three. Add cooked meat to crescent roll crust
four. Add 1/2 cup of crushed Taco flavored Doritos on top of meat
five. Add 8 oz. sour cream, spread over meat and chips
six. Add cheese and top with remaining 1/2 cup of crushed chips

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, cut and serve warm OR if you are taking it to a friend, keep refrigerated until delivery and pass along baking instructions and a recipe card because they will ask you for the recipe!

That sounds good- We have something similar but I like the use of the crescent roll crust. This is an easier recipe than my own! Love it- xo Diana

This looks AMAZING! I would consider having a baby if it meant my friends would bring me these types of meals every day! :)

It seems like we are just in that stage of life where we always have another friend who has just had a baby. Our go-to meal to take to new mommies is white chicken enchiladas. :) This looks super delicious, I bet your friends love it!
