Baked Taco Ring
This is different and delicious, wonderful to serve for parties and for snacks. If you are a garlic and onion-lover (like me) then add in 1-2 tablespoons fresh garlic with an onion when browning the beef. Any amount of garnishes may be used, the amounts listed are only estimated --- my recipe #76616 works well with this :)
- Ready In:
- 1⁄2 lb lean ground beef, cooked (can use more ground beef)
- 1 (35 g) package taco seasoning mix (or $notetemplate1$)
- 1 - 1 1⁄2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 (8 ounce) packages crescent roll dough
- 1 whole medium green bell pepper (do not chop)
- 1⁄2 head lettuce, shredded
- 1 large tomatoes, coarsely chopped, for garnish
- 1 small onion, chopped, for garnish
- 1 cup whole pitted black olives, for garnish
- 1 cup salsa (or more if desired)
- sour cream (to garnish)
- Set oven to 375°f.
- In a bowl, combine the cooked ground beef, taco seasoning mix, cheese and water.
- On a lightly greased pizza pan, or round baking stone, arrange the crescent triangles in a circle, with the larger sides of the dough overlapping each other a bit in center, and the points to the outside (you should have a 5-inch diameter circle in the center).
- Spoon a small amount of meat mixture over rolls.
- Fold points of triangles over the filling, and tuck under base at center (filling will not be completely covered).
- Bake 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Cut off the top of the bell pepper.
- Fill the pepper with salsa, and place in the center of the baked ring, (use salsa to spoon over taco rolls).
- Mound lettuce, onion, tomato and olives around the pepper.
- Garnish with sour cream -- serve!

I had company coming and wanted to make something different to munch on. This looked so good, and so pretty. My friends, DH and I spooned some on our plates, loaded with some chopped lettuce, tiny diced tomatoes, black olives, salsa and sour cream and dug in! Who cares what it looks like once it's on your plate, when it tastes so good and your enjoying it so much together? This won my heart for ease of preparation, and the overall compliments from those I shared it with. This is going into my 'To Make Again' recipes! Thank you!
While KIttencal is my favorite chef here I have to give this just 3 stars. Presentation would be 5 stars, very pretty, overall taste (i used pkg taco seasoning) was 3 stars. The hardest thing was eating it and the presentation once you put on the add ons. For that I give it 2 stars. I spooned on the lettuce etc, the salsa and sour cream. Then it just looked like a big blob. I think regular tacos would be easier to eat. JMHO
