Taco Ring Recipe
This recipe isn’t just for dinner. Having guests over for a Super Bowl party? This is a great appetizer and would go awesome with a Taco Bar.
- Ground Beef
- Crescent Rolls
- Taco Seasoning
How To Make A Taco Ring
You’re going to love just how easy this is! First, go ahead and brown your ground beef with seasoning and the diced onions. You can leave out the onions of course, if they aren’t your thing.
Then, get a large baking sheet or a circular pizza pan, and fan out your crescent rolls. Roll each of them triangles out and lay them with the point facing out. Sprinkle cheese on top of the meat.
Spoon the beef mixture around the thickest part of the crescent roll, where it is overlapped at the top. Then take the thinner part of the roll and wrap it over the meat and tuck it under.
Bake the taco crescent ring for about 18 minutes. Let it cool just slightly and serve.
Taco Crescent Ring Toppings
I personally love eating mine completely plain – it’s that good. But, there are tons of topping choices so you can make it your own. Our favorites are:
- Sour Cream
- Shredded Lettuce
- If you’re worried about making a perfect circle, place a bowl at the center of your baking sheet and work around it, overlapping the sections of dough, piece by piece.
- For guests, place additional bowls of toppings. The taco ring, itself, is so easy to cut and serve. The openings in the ring, guide you on where to cut off each piece.
- 1- pound lean ground beef
- ½ cup onion peeled and diced
- ½ cup water
- 1 package 1 ounce taco seasoning
- 2 cans crescent rolls 8 rolls per can, 16 total rolls
- 1 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
- chopped avocado
- chopped tomato
- sour cream
- shredded lettuce
- chopped onion
- chopped green onion
- lime wedges
- black olives
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Crumble the ground beef into the pan and add the diced onions; cook until the beef is no longer pink. Pour the cooked beef into a colander to drain excess grease, then return the meat to the skillet.
Add the water and taco seasoning to the cooked meat and cook over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring often.
While the meat mixture is simmering, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Open the cans of crescent roll dough and separate the triangles. Arrange the crescent rolls into a circle by placing on a large baking sheet or pizza pan with the wide end of the dough triangles overlapping and the pointed ends facing out to create the look of a sunburst.
Spoon the seasoned ground beef mixture onto the overlapped dough area of the circle. Sprinkle the with shredded cheese.
Take the pointed part of the dough and bring it across the meat and cheese filling, then tuck the dough under. Repeat until all of the points of dough have been tucked in and most of the meat is covered by the dough.
Bake the taco ring for 18 minutes, until golden brown.
Cool slightly, then slice the ring and serve with the toppings of your choice.
