Taco Ring Recipe

I guess this is an oldie....but i have just discovered it!  its super simple and the kids love it.  Ive been told its a pampered chef recipe.  they are quite creative!!

what you will need is:
1 lb browned hamburger.
1 pkg taco seasoning and water as directed
2 packages of crescent rolls
toppings of your choosing.

Brown the hamburger.  Add the taco seasoning and any water as directed on package.  let simmer for a few minutes.
add the cheese to the meat mixture or you can add on top as i did later.

i used a pizza pan tonight, but have also made on a simple cookie sheet.  either way worked fine.

open your crescent packages and separate on the perforated edges.  place on a circle pattern, like a sunflower.  make sure the points are on the outer edge.  you will overlap the rolls on the inner edge.

spread your taco mixture on the inner edge.  i put the cheese after....but you can mix it in with the meat before putting on the crescents.

fold over the crescent roll "points" and tuck the points under.  see your beautiful ring?  oh wait....it gets better.

bake at 375 for 20-25....or until golden brown like below.  when you open your oven, prepare to drool a little. 

isn't that just yummy?

the toppings i added on my plate were salsa, lettuce, some avocado.   you could do rice, beans, tomatoes....you name it!

hope you enjoy!!!

I've been making this for years & my family loves it. If you want to take it to a party, cut the top off of a green and a red pepper, clean them out & put sour cream in one & salsa in the other & put in the middle of the taco ring, looks great. We've also made this with a ham, cheese & broccoli filling. Once we had left over grilled steak, so my husband fried up peppers & onions, cut up the steak & added cheese - delicious!

How cool! I bet you could make it more of a pizza ring with a little marinara instead of taco seasoning!
