Taco Ring

by sunshine on August 28, 2009

One of my dear friends shared this recipe with me.  I’m all about Mexican food so of course I couldn’t wait to give it a try.  It was quite tasty.  I can see making a few variations to it here or there, but the original recipe is one that anyone would like.  My friend uses this recipe all the time when she has company because it is quite the crowd pleaser.  You can dress it up like this to make quite impression on others…

I just made it for my husband and I one weeknight so I didn’t add all the extras to dress it.  We DID dress it with my favorite queso though!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. ground beef, cooked and drained
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 2 packages (8oz) crescent rolls
  • 1 medium green or red pepper
  • 1/2 head of lettuce, shredded
  • 1 medium tomato, cubed
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • sliced black olives
  • 1 cup salsa
  • Sour Cream

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine meat, seasoning, ½ of cheese, and water in a Classic Batter Bowl. Arrange crescent triangles on a Large Round Baking Stone. The bases will overlap and points to the outside (it should look like a sunburst).
Scoop the meat mixture over the crescent rolls using the Large Scoop. Fold the triangle over filling and tuck under the base at the center. Filling will not be completely covered. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cut the top of the green or red pepper off using V-Shaped Cutter and take out the seeds.
Place the pepper in the center of the ring and fill with salsa. Slice the lettuce with your Ultimate Slice & Grate and mound the lettuce, onion, and tomato,
black olives, and remaining cheese around the pepper. Garnish with sour cream using Easy Accent Decorator. Show-off your beautiful dish and then enjoy!
