Taco Ring

We made this at a friends Pampered Chef party and it was awesome. I've tweaked it a little to be easier for me but it still turns out  super yummy!


2lbs groud beef or turkey
2 pkgs of taco seasoning
1 1/2 cup water
2 cans of crescent rolls
shredded cheese

Garnish if desired

shredded lettuce
chopped tomatos
chopped olives
sour cream
shredded cheese

In skillet, brown meat. Add taco seasoning and water according to package directions. Simmer for 5 minutes to make sure it's not runny. Add some cheese and mix well.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On large pizza pan or pizza stone (I would recommend the stone), place crescent roll triangles in a circle around the middle of the pan, large side to the middle, point towards the edge of the pan (sunburst pattern). Use a small roller to flatten out the middle of the ring. Add meat in the middle of the ring in a ring inside the crescent rolls. Fold crescent points into the middle of the ring. Top with cheese if desired. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until nice and golden. Once ring is done baking, garnish with your favorite toppings, serve and enjoy!
