We like the simplicity of this recipe. The prep is so easy, and then stick it in the oven. While it’s cooking you can still get things done or help with homework.
We love the crescent roll dough as the crust. It’s thicker than a tortilla and full of flavor with the crescent roll. It was soft and chewy and downright amazing.

There are many variations you can use when making Crescent Roll Burrito Bake. We have talked to many readers that have given us so many suggestions. Look in your fridge and throw in those extra veggies or cheese options.

- Black Beans– we love black beans in all of our Mexican food recipes.
