Spanish Biscuits

Jayme loves to create stories and dance and is an "A" student. She's creative in the kitchen as well. Both her mom and dad cook and she helps them both. This is a recipe she and her mom created for the Pillsbury Kids Bake-Off. It didn't place in that contest, but it was a winner with our kid testers. We served it with a salad and veggies and dip.

8 crescent rolls (we used Pillsbury)
1/2 cup ground beef, browned
1/4 cup refried beans
1/2 cup mild Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 cup mild salsa

Separate crescent roll like pizza slices. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Spread refried beans on crescent rolls; add beef on top of refried beans. Place shredded Cheddar cheese on top of beef and add salsa on top of cheese. To serve: Place crushed tortilla chips and blue tortilla chips on plates. Place crescents on top.
