My husband and kids REALLY love this recipe and I serve it ever few months. It’s easy to mix it up and try different toppings and meat. For example you could substitute chicken or turkey.

1 lb lean ground beef

1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning mix

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 ounces) Yes I always use more…love my cheese!

2 tablespoons water

2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

1 medium bell pepper

1 cup salsa

3 cups lettuce shredded

1 medium tomato

1/4 cup onion, chopped (optional)

1/2 cup pitted ripe black olives (optional)

sour cream (optional)

Cook ground beef in large skillet over medium heat 7-9 minutes or until beef is no longer pink; drain.

Remove pan from heat.

Stir in taco seasoning mix, cheese and water.

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Unroll crescent dough; separate into triangles.

Arrange triangles in a circle on a round pizza pan with wide ends overlapping in center and points toward outside. (There should be a 5 inch diameter opening in center.)

Scoop meat mixture evenly onto widest end of each triangles up over filling and tuck under wide ends of dough at center of ring. (Filling will not be completely covered).

Bake at 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Shred lettuce and chop tomato, onion, olives, and bell pepper (if desired).

If you want to do something fancy, scoop out a bell pepper and fill with salsa and put into center of ring.

Add your toppings to middle of ring and finish with more shredded cheese and sour cream.
