Taco Ring

This is a Pampered Chef's recipe, but I tweaked it a tiny bit. To see the original recipe you can go here.


1 lb. ground beef
1\4 cup ketchup
1 cup salsa
1-2 cups cheese
1 tomato, diced
olives (optional)
2 tubes refrigerated crescent rolls
Parmesan Cheese

How To:

Cook your ground beef in a large skillet until no longer pink. (I added a little pepper to my beef.)
Add your ketchup and stir until coated (you may need a little more until it is entirely coated)
Add your salsa (again, add more or less according your preference) and grated cheese.
Let the mixture melt together on low heat for about ten minutes.
{make sure the cheese is almost all the way melted together, it is better if it is a little gooey}

Meanwhile, open crescent rolls and arrange triangles in a circle onto a cooking stone (or a round pizza pan) with the wide ends overlapping in the center and the points toward the outside.

Take your beef mixture and put a spoonful or so of the beef onto the widest end of the triangle.

Sprinkle tomatoes, extra cheese and olives over the mixture, and then take the points of the triangles and pull over and tuck under the wide end toward the center of the ring.

Pour a light coating of parmesan cheese over the ring right before baking.

375 for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

This is yummy with extra salsa, guacamole and sour cream to dip it in.

The ketchup part might throw you off a bit, but I promise, it is so, so good!

i'm going to try a veggie version of this - do you think all veggies would work, or should i use vegetarian mince?
