Baked Taco Ring
1 lb. ground beef
1 pkg. (1.25 oz) taco seasoning mix
add water according to package directions
1 cup (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
2- 8 oz. packages refrigerated crescent rolls
1 cup salsa (optional)
1/2 cup lettuce, shredded
1 Roma tomato, diced
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup pitted ripe olives
1-8 oz.pkg. sour cream
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Brown the ground beef until no longer pink. Drain. Add taco seasoning and water; simmer as directed.
Unroll the crescent dough and separate into triangles. On a pizza pan, lay triangles in a circle with the wide ends toward the center of the pan, slightly overlapping. Repeat slightly layering. (Points will be near edge of pan with a circle in the center.)
Spoon taco meat over the widest end of each triangle. Bring the point of each triangle over filling and tuck under dough. (There will be spaces in between the layers).
Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool slightly.
Spoon sour cream in center of ring. Sprinkle sour cream with lettuce and then tomato, onion, olives and salsa if desired.
Serves 12 or so.
NOTE - Next time I'll put some cheese directly on top of the taco meat to goo it all together.
