I got this recipe from a friend. She uses refrigerated crescent rolls in several of her favorite recipes. I loved this one, especially.

1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 13 by 9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Spoon about 1/4 cup beef mixture into center of each square. Lift 4 corners of dough up over filling to meet in center; pinch and twist firmly to seal. Place squares in prepared dish.

Bake, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes or until crusts are golden brown. Sprinkle cheese over squares. Bake 5 minutes or until cheese melts. To serve, spoon soup mixture in dish over each serving; sprinkle with cilantro, if desired. Serve with salsa, if desired.
