Taco Ring






This recipe is SO, SO simple that I hesitate to even post it, but since this is my most requested "shindig" food, I'll put it up for posterity!
I actually had this at a Pampered Chef party but I dumbed it down due to lack of ingredients one day and the result got more compliments than the original. So here it is..


TACO RING
2 cans crescent rolls
1 lb hamburger
taco seasoning (1-2 packets or about 4 tbs bulk taco seasoning)
combination of any type cheese that you like (approximately 2 cups-I used monterey jack and sharp cheddar)


Unroll crescent rolls into triangles.  Place triangles in a circle with tips facing out. It doesn't have to be perfect, you just need the bases to be overlapping so that the taco meat has a place to be.  Brown the hamburger meat and prepare with seasoning and the called for amount of water.  Allow the water to cook out so the crescent dough doesn't become soggy.  Spoon the meat over the bases of the crescents.  You can pile it higher than you think!  Add the cheese over the meat and wrap the point over the meat/cheese mixture.  Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until browned.  Serve with sour cream  and/or salsa, or nothing!  
It's really good with seasoned chicken also!  A fantabulous way to use up leftover meats.


UPDATE:  GRATE YOUR OWN CHEESE!   It makes all the difference in the world.
