• Taco Ring

    I’ve looked at the beautiful presentation of this taco ring recipe many times and in many places, but I always thought it was too hard for me to make. THEN….my friend Sharon Hutson made it, and I  find myself thinking that surely I can do this too! :)

    TACO RINGWhat you are seeing here today is the ring Sharon recently served her husband, Rick, but I AM going to try this myself….soon…

    Ingredients

    2 Crescent Roll Tubes
    1 Pound Ground Beef
    1 Packet Taco Seasoning
    1 1/2 Cups Grated Cheddar Cheese
    Shredded lettuce
    1 or 2 Diced Tomatoes
    1/2-1  Small Can Olives, sliced
    (Avocado, Sour Cream, etc.)

    Preparation

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    1. Separate the crescent pastry and lay out in a circle, pointed ends out on a foil lined pizza pan, sprayed very lightly with cooking spray. Use some of the leftover crescent rolls to to make the center a bit thicker as this will hold the meat.

    2. Brown meat in a frying pan until no longer pink. Drain fat and add taco seasoning as directed on package, reducing the water to a scant 1/3 cup from the 1/2 cup called for. Drain excess liquid from meat.

    3. Sprinkle meat mixture in a circle inside the crescent rolls, then sprinkle 1 cup of the cheese over the meat. Pull crescent roll points over meat and cheese and tuck in.

    Bake at 350 degrees until pastry is golden brown (30 min).

    4. Add remaining 1/2 cup of cheese, chopped lettuce, tomato, black olives, and jalapenos (if using), into the middle of the ring, then add a few dollops of sour cream if desired, before serving.

    Thanks for sharing, Sharon!!
