Taco Ring

I think this is an old Pampered Chef recipe.  I made it Thursday for dinner, and we both really liked it.  I found it in a cookbook that was put together by the employees at the office James worked at when we lived in AR.  It was incomplete though.  There were no instructions given for two of the ingredients, so I decided to document what I did so I'll know the next time I make this.

1 lb cooked ground beef
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 c. shredded Mexican  cheese
2  Tbls. water
1/2 cup black olives
1/2 medium sized white onion, chopped
2 packages refrigerated crescent rolls
serve with salsa, shredded lettuce, and sour cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl combine beef, taco seasoning mix, cheese, water, black olives, and onion.  Unroll crescent dough and separate into triangles.  Arrange triangles in a circle on round baking stone with wide ends overlapping in center.  Scoop meat misture evenly onto widest end of each triangle.  Bring points of triangles up over filling and tuck under wide ends of dough at the center of the ring.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.  Slice and serve with salsa, shredded lettuce, and sour cream


  1. I've made this same thing using a chicken salad type filling. Guess you could do about anything you could come up with. I'll have to try this one.

  2. Oh this sounds so good reminds me of a recipe my mother had that I loved but it was more italian with parmesan and mozzarola and sauce. I have lost it. But I would like to try yours.
    Thanks for sharing. Hope your weekend is Blessed.
    btw I have a give away at my other blog
