How to Make Your Own Taco Ring

Now you may be asking yourself "What is a Taco Ring?" and I will tell you, the best use of crescent roll dough ever. EVER.
Here is a picture of a finished Taco Ring.

It looks delicious doesn't it?
*Note:  For some reason I only bought one tube of rolls for this.  Your finished product will have more crust

  • 2 tubes of crescent rolls
  • 1 lb of you meat of choice (I made these with shredded chicken, but you could use ground beef or turkey)
  • 2 tbs chilli powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust for your taste, we like things SPICY!)
  • Toppings (sour cream, salsa, avacado, anything else you like on your taco)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Heat up a pan and brown your meat, when it is browned, stir in the spices and turn off the heat.

While the meat is cooking, get started making your ring.  Open up the crescent rolls and separate it into triangles.  Grease a cookie sheet.  Then lay out the triangles in a circle with the corner on the short ends over lapping.  It will look like this but yours will have twice as many points because you didn't forget a second tube of dough.

Next add your filling on top of the crescent rolls.  Now you will lift up the points one at a time.
And tuck the point under the filling and attach it to the bottom of the ring

And keep going, doing the same thing with the rest of points.
It will look like this:
 Then pop it in the oven for 15 minutes until the crust is nice and golden.

Then cut it into wedges and top it with your favorite taco toppings.  Serve with salad or coleslaw.  I'll post my Mexican Slaw recipe another time.
