1 can (16 ounces) refried beans

1/4 cup chopped onion

1 envelope taco seasoning

1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls

1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add beans, onion and taco seasoning.

Spread beef mixture over crust; sprinkle with cheeses. Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Sprinkle with toppings of your choice. Yield: 6 servings.
