I have had this huge- taco craving lately so when I came across a Taco Ring Recipe from Jennifer over at MomSpotted last week I just had to give it a try. It looked so good that I decided to run out to the grocery store to pick up everything I needed to make it that night.

    • lettuce
    • tomato
    • sliced black olives

How to make a taco ring:

To make this pampered chef taco ring recipe, first you’ll want to preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

Open the crescent rolls and fan them out out making a circle. Leave the crescent rolls open in triangular shape.

Cook the hamburger in a skillet on medium heat and drain.

Mix the hamburger, water, and taco seasoning in small bowl. Add cheese, mix well.
Add a small amount of the hamburger mixture to the biggest part of the crescent rolls. Continue around the entire circle. *A cookie scoop works perfect if you have one.

The Taco Ring has simple ingredients and was very easy to make. The whole family loved it and were already asking me to make it for Taco Tuesday again. Looks like we’ll be adding this crescent roll taco ring to our monthly menu.

Taco Wreath:

Need an easy appetizer to make for a holiday party or looking to make a festive spread for Christmas eve? Make this taco ring into a taco wreath. Instead of adding all of the lettuce in the middle, top the taco roll ups with shredded lettuce. Spread out the chopped tomatoes and black olives to make them look like ornaments.
