Taco Crescent Bake

Well, it's already Friday evening and I haven't posted yet, sorry!
I enjoyed the day with my husband; nothing crazy just an errand filled day.
I have been wanting to share with you this recipe that I made about a month ago.
I need to make it again!
I knew I wanted to make something 'taco' 
and I also wanted to use up some extra ingredients on hand from the holidays.
I love taco pie, lasagna, and regular tacos.
How abut Tacos on garlic crescent rolls?
Oh yes.
So good!
I'm calling it,
Taco Fave
1 lb ground meat-I used venison {you could do turkey or organic hamburger}
1 small cooking onion chopped
1 can garlic {or plain} crescent rolls 
1 packet of taco seasoning
2 T cream cheese
4-5 chopped Roma tomatoes {or any kind, really}
4-5 slices of cheese {I used Gruyere-- cheddar, Swiss, any kind will do!}
3/4 cup crushed tortilla chips 
Taco sauces, salsas, etc. for topping
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees & line a 9x13 pan with crescent rolls, closing all seams
Follow instructions on the can to bake!
2. EVOO in medium heat gently cook onions until soft. Add beef & cook until no longer pink.
{Drain if you used a fatty meat} 
3. Stir in taco seasonings, following directions on packet.
4. When meat is cooked, add cream cheese {optional, but recommended!}
5. Chop tomatoes and assemble ingredients to layer.
6.Spread the meat enough so that it covers the crescent roll.
7. Add cheese, more meat, cheese, tomatoes, {feel free to add beans if you'd like!} 
8. Layer with fancy cheese.
9. Add crushed tortilla chips to the top for that added crunch.
10.  Bake for about 20 minutes {or until everything is warmed through and melted.
11. Serve it on a bed of lettuce.
12.  Have salsa, sauces, Greek yogurt, &guacamole to top.
