Brown ground beef; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix and water; simmer for 5 minutes. Separate crescent dough into triangles in ungreased 9 or 10 inch pie pan, pressing to form crust.

A new take on an old traditional recipe! Brown hamburger in skillet until done; drain well. Add taco seasoning to the cooked hamburger and mix together according to package directions.

I call this recipe Taco Pie, but it rarely resembles a taco. I created it years ago while experimenting, and it has become a family favorite.
