Does your family love tacos so much that you celebrate Taco Tuesday? I have found so many great recipes for taco casseroles, taco salads, taco chili, well…you get the idea; just about anything taco, so I could not wait to try out this particular recipe on my family, friends, and neighbors. Everyone enjoys this one the best, and it has been my most requested taco recipe.
This is an easy dish to make; one that will get you high reviews. If your family hasn’t celebrated Taco Tuesdays yet, this recipe is a great one to start off with.
What you will need:
I like to purchase one taco dinner kit per ring made. The hard tacos are broken up and used to eat the leftover center ingredients.
Brown and drain 1 ½ lbs. of ground beef (ground turkey can be substituted).
Mix in 2/3 cup of water and the taco seasoning packet; set aside till needed.
Using one round pizza pan, arrange 2 pkgs. of Pillsbury crescent rolls with the small end pointing outwards. It will resemble a sunflower.
Place the ground meat on the rolls along the wide part, making a circle of meat on the crescent rolls. Top with cheddar cheese in the same manner.
Take the small end and bring it towards the center of the pan, over the meat/cheese mixture and tuck underneath the wide part of the crescent.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Time will vary depending on your oven.
Let cool for 5-10 minutes then garnish.
Garnish the center with any extra meat, top this with sour cream, lettuce, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, and black olives. Serve with your favorite salsa or taco sauce.
Tips: In the past, I have prepared my meat mixture 1-2 days ahead of use. This cuts the preparation time in half.
Make and freeze the meat mixture for future use. It will be ready when you are.
Serve with your favorite fresh fruit and whipped topping.
