Tempt My Tummy Tuesday - Pampered Chef's Taco Ring

One of my best blogger friends Debra @ Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History told me about this amazing recipe. The boys love taco's and you know me and my casserole and wrap themes. Rick actually asked me when I would stop with the casseroles ... LOL I told him when he comes home to do the dinners. Yup casseroles live on!!!!

This one was real easy and super yummy now the ones on the Internet of course were all fancy and done up with a salad and carved out pepper in the center. In my house I go for easy and quick and yummy! So I added the onions and black olives in the inside, to make it an all in one wrap. Then added Salsa and Sour Cream to the finished products, it was all gone by the time the boys got done. You'll have to try this one and let me know what you think!

All you need:

Add Taco Seasoning to the browned meat
Add the water so you don't have chunks of seasoning

Fan out the crescent rolls

Yup not pretty but it worked!

Add the ground beef

Again not pretty come on what do you expect from me?

Add the Cheese

Come on you know the theme by now!

Here is where I added the onions and black olives

Fold over the edges

Out of the oven!

2 can Refrigerated crescent rolls
1 lb Ground meat or turkey
1 pk Taco seasoning mix according
1/2 Head lettuce
1 Tomato cubed
1/2 Onion or 3 or 4 green onions
1 c Sour cream
8 oz Cheddar cheese
1/2 c Black olives; sliced
1 Bell pepper; (sits flat)
1 c Mild salsa

Cook meat, drain, add taco seasoning and cook until liquid is absorbed. Add cheese. Arrange crescent rolls on a flat baking stone in a circle with bases overlapping in center and points to the outside - (unroll the crescent rolls and place the pointed triangle part on the stone overlapping each one) Spoon meat around in a circle and pull the square part of the crescent rolls over the meat, sealing it to look like a wreath. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cut lettuce with garnisher and use v-shaped cutter to cut pepper. Chop onion and tomato with food chopper. Slice olives with egg slicer. Fill pepper with salsa and place in the center of the taco ring. Put lettuce around the pepper and arrange tomatoes, onions and olives on top. Add sour cream if you like. Cut with pizza cutter and serve with mini serving spatula.
