Taco Ring. That's what's for dinner tonight.

These are so easy and yummy! Have you tried one yet? I made a "cheeseburger" ring not too long and posted about it as well. So, tonight I am making the taco ring. Same idea.


 You need:

Two crescent roll tubes (the kind that pop!)
1 Lb. ground beef
A packet of taco seasoning
1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar cheese or Pepper Jack



And:

All the fresh goodies you like to have with tacos!!!!

Sour cream  (optional)
Guacamole (optional)
Black olives (optional)
Tomatoes (optional)
Lettuce  (optional)
Onions (optional)

You can also add green chilies to the meat....delicious!

I really just threw this together. It doesn't have to be perfect. I've made some now that are gorgeous and some that are a bit messy....guess what? Everyone loves them either way! Lay out the two tubes of crescent pastry, thick sides in. Use some of the left over crescent rolls to to make the center a bit thicker.

Seasoned ground beef on the crescent rolls


add desired cheddar cheese on top. Try pepper-jack for a twist!
This is really all you do. Brown the beef and add taco seasoning. Place the crescent rolls out with the wide end towards the center. Using two crescent roll tubes....I always break some up and add toward the center to hold all the meat. Then I topped it off with Cheddar cheese.


 Fold over the ends. Nothing to it. Bake at 375 until golden brown. Remember the ground is cooked through so it doesn't take long!






You might want to try the "Cheeseburger Ring" as well. It was de-lish!

    2. How do you make the middle part?

      Delete
  5. The middle is just shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream, salsa, black olives if you'd like....Every thing you'd like on your taco! You can just have bowls with garnish and spoons too. It looks great without a salad inside too.

  7. You can vary the recipe easily. You can't get it wrong, but I used 1 lb. and it worked well. Play around with the dough as well. pull it, place bits of an extra one (you have extras, because you need two cans.) in the center to fill in gaps, etc. I hope you enjoy it! I think it's yummy!

  12. I am sorry seeming your husband doesn't want this picture shared on other peoples post without giving you credit ... don't you think you should be giving Pampered Chef credit seeming this was there's first!!!

  13. Hi Stacy! Not sure what you mean about my husband and sharing the photos on other PEOPLE'S posts. I am really easy going about my photos and pinning, etc. I first saw this on Pinterest, via the link I give in my post. I had no idea it was a Pampered Chef original. I certainly would give them credit. I have no problem with that. I didn't know it was THEIR recipe.

    2. I've made this many times and in fact it's whats for dinner tonite! I stuff the center with lettuce, tomatoes, black olives and chopped onion and put a little thousand island on it. Kinda has a feel of a taco salad in another shape.

  14. Oh good grief, who cares who gets "credit"! It's food not a million dollar invention! Thanks for passing it on Karen! :)

  15. I am going to add some chorizo to the meat, then sauté some onions, green pepper and jalepeno for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp of cumin, 1/14 tsp of red pepper, and 5 cloves of garlic; sauté 1 minute, stirring constantly. Yes I took that part from a different recipe, but it is also mexican based and when I saw this, that was the first idea I had. Can not wait to try it. Thank you.

    1. That sounds delicious!!! I LOVE chorizo. Great idea. I might have to try it with all your added flavor. Yum. I think I have posted the recipe on my blog, but I also sprinkle cumin all over chicken then pour salsa on it, shredded Cheddar cheese and bake. I love cumin. Thanks for the ideas!! Love it.

    2. Your welcome. The idea for the onions and jalepeno part came from my sister's own blog. The recipe is Baked black beans with chorizo. It is delicious in itself. http://networkedblogs.com/zqPqL if you are interested. Now I am off to make this ring for football today. Thank you once again.

    3. It is finished and I have decided I am going to just put it around my neck and eat my way out. The heck with everyone else. Thank you.

    can I say… I put things off a lot and don't manage to get anything done.
