Ingredient List
  • Small check mark in a circle icon 1 lb ground beef
  • Small check mark in a circle icon 1 package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
  • Small check mark in a circle icon 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
  • Small check mark in a circle icon 2 cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • Small check mark in a circle icon Shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced ripe olives, taco sauce or salsa, as desired
Preparation
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef until no longer pink. Add taco seasoning mix and 1/2 cup water. Simmer 3 to 4 minutes or until slightly thickened. In medium bowl, mix beef mixture and cheese.
  2. Unroll both cans of dough; separate into 16 triangles. On ungreased large cookie sheet, arrange triangles in ring so short sides of triangles form a 5-inch circle in center. Dough will overlap. Dough ring should look like the sun.
  3. Spoon beef mixture on the half of each triangle closest to center of ring.
  4. Bring each dough triangle up over filling, tucking dough under bottom layer of dough to secure it. Repeat around ring until entire filling is enclosed (some filling might show a little).
  5. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until dough is golden brown and thoroughly baked. Cool 5 to 10 minutes before cutting into serving slices.
Expert Tips
  • Don't care for ground beef? Substitute chicken instead!
  • Spicy taco seasoning mix is a nice option for those who prefer a little more kick! Or, sliced jalapeño chiles will also do the trick.
