Friday Feast: Davy Crockett Ground Beef Wrap Ups

June 26, 2009

Davy, Davy Crockett! King of the wild frontier!

Did everyone know that we have house guests this summer? Our buds Graham and Claire are staying with us for a few months, and JD and I have been thrilled to share dinner duties with them so far. It’s so nice to have other people make your dinner, and I also love to cook for more than just JD, even though he’s so encouraging and eats large enough portions for multiple people anyway!

Since we live in Nashville and Claire is from San Antonio, I figured Davy Crockett was a great historical figure to revolve a meal around, considering ol’ D.C. represented Tennessee in the U.S. House of Representatives and died defending Texas at the Battle of the Alamo.  And who doesn’t love theme meals?  So, here is it is:

Davy Crockett Group Beef Wrap Ups

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Cooking Time: 13 minutes

Cleanup Time: 5 minutes

yum! Davy Crockett would be proud.


1 1/4 pounds lean ground round

2 teaspoons salt

2 (8-ounce) packages crescent roll tubes

2 (4-ounce) cans whole green chiles

1 (8-ounce) pack shredded mild cheddar cheese

1/2 medium onion, chopped

1 pint light sour cream

black olives, chopped

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Heat skillet on high temperature. Add ground round, salt to taste and brown.
  • Roll out first package of crescent rolls onto a baking sheet. Separate into four individual squares. (Do not separate into triangles.)
  • Lay one chile on each of the four crescent roll squares. (Note: If you are making this for someone with the initials G.R.L., ask G.R.L. if he likes chiles before putting them in his cresent roll square.)
  • Place three ounces cooked ground round on top of each of the four chiles.
  • Sprinkle 1-ounce of cheddar cheese and chopped onion over the ground round on each of the four wraps.
  • Open the second pack of crescent rolls and place the same square piece over each of the wraps. Top each wrap with another ounce of cheese.
  • Put the wraps in the oven for 13 minutes. (They are going to smell amazing!)
  • Dollop sour cream on each wrap. Top with black olives.

And now you’ve got a yummy, hearty meal. It probably didn’t work perfectly in the summertime heat, but it most certainly filled the bellies of everyone under our roof!

    That looks so good! I’m sure your San Antonio friends appreciated the theme… :) I’ll have to make those sometime when I have out of state visitors to SA
