I love taco's.....and all things taco... which brings me to this Taco ring... This is a picture of it going into the oven... and we cut into it and served it and I forgot to take an "after" picture...
Serve this with taco "toppings", whatever you like on your tacos....I serve this with lettuce, tomatoes, chopped onions, salsa /hot sauce & olives..I also serve this with sour cream on the side. Sometimes I make a black bean & corn salsa dip to serve with it... YUM
1 lb. ground beef
1 package taco seasoning mix
1/3 cup water
2 package, refridgerated crescent rolls
1 1/2 cups mexican shredded cheese
Cook ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink, breaking up to small pieces. Drain any fat off. Sprinkle in the taco seasoning packet & water and heat till bubbly and mixture is thickened. Let cool for around 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375. Line a large round pizza pan with foil & spray with non stick spray. Unroll crescent rolls. With the points out and the flat part of each triangle in the center put a triangle at the 3, 6, 9 & 12 leaving a circle about 3 inches open in the middle. The put the rest of the triangle overlapping and arranging like a "sun" making sure that the points are facing out to the outside edges of the pan. When all the crescent rolls are used, use your fingertips and in just the edge that is by the open circle part push the crescent rolls together. Spoon the cooled meat in the along between the edge of the rolls and the points being careful not to get any on the edges of the points because you have to wrap them over and tuck them in. Spoon using all of the meat. Sprinkle the cheese carefully along the meat. Take each point and wrap it towards the center of the empty center part of the ring pushing the point in with your fingers.. Do until all of the points are done. See picture. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until ring is golden brown and done. Remove from oven, slice and serve with assorted toppings.. Enjoy
