My son, Casey, who is now in medical school studying to be an M.D. reminded me last week about this casserole.  He was preparing it for his roommates.  It is so easy to make, and he had eaten it many times growing up that Casey had remembered how to make it.  After researching the 561 recipes on my blog, Yes, I have that many recipes I have written about over the past seven years, I did not find a recipe for this Mexican Crescent Roll Casserole.  So, now I do.  When my kids were teenagers, it was a go-to recipe.  They loved Crescent rolls and Mexican food so one day I put them together and it was a huge hit.
