T is for Taco Crescent Ring Recipe

Taco Crescent Ring Recipe


1 pound of ground beef
1 package of taco seasoning mix (your choice)
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
2 cans of Pillsbury refrigerated crescent rolls

For inside before serving:
Shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced ripe olives, chopped green onion, taco sauce or salsa as desired, or as a variation serve with guacamole in the center ring


Heat oven to 375 degrees 
In a skillet, cook meat until brown and crumbly and no longer pink
Add taco seasoning mix and about 1/2 cup of water
Simmer four to five minutes.

In a bowl, mix the meat mixture with the shredded cheese

Unroll both cans of dough and separate into sixteen triangles
On an ungreased large cookie sheet, arrange triangles in a ring so the short sides of the triangles form a five inch circle in the center.  Dough will overlap and should look like the sun.

Spoon the beef mixture onto the half of each triangle closest to the center ring.

Bring each dough triangle up over filling, tucking dough up under bottom of dough to secure it.  Repeat around the ring until the entire filling is enclosed (some filling might show a little)

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until dough is golden brown and thoroughly baked.  Cool five to ten minutes.

Carefully move to a serving plate before cutting into serving slices.  Don’t forget to fill the center ring with your favorite ingredients before serving.

Note:  I did try this recipe that came across my email and it was good, but I would add a bit more cheese and a bit more liquid to make the end product juicier.  My husband liked it but said it was a bit drier than tacos.  I think the dough soaks up some of the juice.

Also, it’s a bit hard to get this sun shape even all the way around.  I think with practice it would be easier.


  1. I remember when you made this recipe! Still looks delicious!

    1. Thea,

      I thought this would be good for my letter T. It's easy to make.

      Thanks for stopping by.


  2. I made something similar; it came out delicious but not quite the shape it was supposed to be :)


    1. Betty,

      Getting the shape is the harder than the actual recipe.

      Thanks for reading and leaving a comment.


  3. Wow! That looks scrumptious and easy to make! I can use ground turkey instead of beef since I don't eat red meat. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Sunni. Pinning!

    1. Vashti,

      Of course you could use ground turkey. I bet you could use other things to. It's very easy to make. The shape is the hardest part of it.
