  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 can chili Wolf brand chili is recommended, I used a deep dish pie plate. If you are using a regular pie plate you may want to reduce it to half or 3/4 can of chili
  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups crushed corn chips


  • Heat oven to 400-f.

For the filling:

  • In a large skillet brown ground beef until no longer pink. Drain and return to the pan. Add the chili. Simmer 5 minutes.

For assembly:

  • Separate the crescent rolls into triangles and lay them in a greased 9″ pie dish, placing the points toward the center of the dish. Press the seams together to seal, forming the crust.
  • Sprinkle 1 cup of the crushed corn chips onto the crust. Spoon meat mix over the top of the corn chips, spreading evenly.
  • Stir sour cream until smooth, then spread over meat. Top with shredded cheese and the remaining 1 cup of crushed corn chips.
  • Bake until the crust is golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.

  1. Made this today, was very good, next time I will add a little more heat! And we love Wolf Brand Chili too!

  2. Just made this only with some variations…and it is awesomeeeee…First browned meat with garlic and seasoned with a little bit of red chili powder and garlic powder and cumino…l/4 to l/2 tsp…max..each….not much… also salted…added some water and about l/2 can of refried beans…mixed all together with meat…added water as necessary to make thick "mush"…OMITTED can of chili…then added l cup crushed fritos…but not crushed super fine…left chunks…also added two dollops of sour cream to the mixture. The mush should be thick and not runny…especially after adding fritoes. Using a pie plate would be too small…so substituted round deep dish casserole and lined with the dough…left some cracks between dough triangles and brought dough all the way up sides. Crushed the fritos super fine and added to dough like recipe states…sprinkled cheese on bottom…added meat mixture…topped with cheese..then whole fritos ..baked as stated…at 400…and it is awesome. The crescent dough is a tad sweet for my taste…but next time will either use biscuit dough or corn bread or will add sweet corn to this recipe to make the sweetness blend better with the meat. I will definitely be making this recipe again and again. Green onions on top would be a good idea, too…could add hominy instead of corn…yum. Would even be good with tortilla chips instead of fritos…and you could add jalapenos. Love this recipe ….so many ways to use it. Thanks for posting it!

    This is a fun recipe for families! I had to make 2, because we are Italian and 1 of these just wouId not be enough! I had made it a 2nd time, I added green and red peppers, cilantro and red onions to the top of it…when it came out of the oven and cooled, I added some freshly diced cherry tomatoes with dollops of more sour cream and cheddar to the top for presentation, and it was soooo gooey, and soooo delicious! A new ‘comfort food’ for cold nights and you need something quick and easy to do! Although I make phyllo dough myself, pillsbury does make the full sheet crescent roll dough, so you won’t have to arrange the triangles…but it is cute, as it makes a seal for portion control as it bakes, but, if you look through the bottom of a clear pie dish, you can see where your cuts are to be made!
