Need a Good Quick Recipe? Try a Taco Ring!
January 26, 2012
Seriously, if you need a good recipe, you should try Taco Ring. My mom taught me how to make it. The only odd part is laying out the crescent rolls; but, if you look at my pictures, I think you’ll understand. It’s worth it, I promise. It is delicious and easy!
¾ lb. ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
2 T. water
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
2 packages of refrigerated crescent rolls
Extra Topping Ideas
Lettuce, Salsa, Sour Cream, Tomatoes
Preheat oven to 375. Cook the beef over medium heat until brown, drain grease. Stir in taco seasoning mix and water. Cook for 5 minutes. Grease pizza pan.
Unroll one package of crescent rolls. Lay them in a ring, with the wide end in the center and the points out. (Note: They will probably hang off the side of the pan).
Unroll second package, repeat process, setting the new rolls on top, but also in-between the bottom layer (Note: The wide end of the roll will overlap the bottom layer, but the point should not be touching the ones beneath.)
Put beef on large part of crescent rolls. Sprinkle with cheese. Fold over the points of the rolls and tuck under the wide ends of the rolls to form a ring. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cut into sections and top with chosen taco toppings.
I promise that it really IS quick and easy. It is just one of those things that is harder to explain than it is to do it. Trust me, once you have the rolls laid out you will understand.
In the last 5 months I got married AND I got a full-time job. I want to be good at making dinner for our home, but time is definitely a limitation. Recipes that are good and easy are invaluable for busy homes. I am thankful for recipes from my mom, but I also am glad that the library has lots of cook books that I can browse. I check out 5 or 6 at a time and skim for the easy recipes.
