Favorite Recipes: Taco Crescent Ring

This a super easy and inexpensive recipe to make.  It also is a very quick recipe, especially if you have meat that is already browned.  I take a big bag of ground venison, mix it with some ground beef and brown a big batch all at once.  Then, I freeze it in meal size portions for tacos, spaghetti sauce, sloppy joes, etc... and pull it back out of the freezer the morning I need it saving me time in the kitchen that day.  I always am looking for new, inexpensive, easy recipes and I was pleased that this one was a hit!

2 containers crescent rolls (I use great value)
1 lb of ground meat
1 packet taco seasoning
2 cups grated cheese (I used a mix of Monteray Jack and Colby)

Lettuce, Tomato, Sour Cream, Salsa, Black Olives, Peppers, or any other topping you like


Lay crescent rolls in a circle on a baking stone or circular cookie sheet thick side in, pointy side out, overlapping slightly to keep the center thick.  Brown beef and add taco seasoning, or thaw already browned frozen beef and add taco seasoning.  Place ground beef in a circle on top of the crescent rolls.  Sprinkle cheese over top of the beef.  Fold crescent rolls over top tucking them under the dough in the middle.  Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until brown.  Remove ring from stone and add lettuce, tomato. sour cream, salsa, and any other toppings you desire in the center.  Serve and enjoy!

Yes, this is one of our favorites! I make them for almost every party or church dinner!! The turkey-cranberry wreath is my other Pampered Chef fave! :-)

I didn't know this was a Pampered Chef recipe! I found it on facebook from a friend that shared it from a friend....etc....and thought it would be great to try with deer meat. I will definitely be making it again!
