  • 16 ounces refrigerated crescent rolls 2 (8-count) packages
  • 1 pound ground beef 85% lean
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning about 1 package
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese about 4 ounces
  • Optional toppings: shredded lettuce chopped tomatoes, extra cheese, sour cream, avocado, sliced jalapeno


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a round baking pan or flat baking sheet with a light coating of cooking spray.
  • In a large frying pan over medium heat, brown the ground beef until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Drain off fat.
  • Return meat to the pan and add the taco seasoning and water. Cook for an additional two minutes or until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat.
  • Add the shredded cheddar cheese and stir until melted.
  • Unroll the crescents and tear apart at the seams. Arrange them them in a circle, wide edges in the center and slightly overlapping (like a sun). Press down to seal.
  • Carefully spoon the taco meat onto the dough around the inner part of the circle, piling up until all the meat is used.
  • Wrap the pointed edge of the dough triangle up and over the meat, pinching in the middle to seal.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the taco ring is lightly golden brown.
  • To serve, place a bowl in the center of the ring and fill with toppings or simply fill the empty center with desired toppings and serve.
