Taco Ring

This is an oldie-but-goodie. I believe I had it at one of the first Pampered Chef parties I attended. I made this just last night--it was quick and SO EASY. And Yummy! It was nice to bring something back into our rotation that we hadn't had for a while.

2 pkg. (16) crescent rolls (you can use low-fat)
1 lb. ground beef--browned
1 pkg. taco seasoning
2 Tbsp. water
1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar is preferable)

optional ingredients for garnishing and topping
1 medium green pepper
1/2 head lettuce
1 medium tomato
1 small onion
sour cream (save a few calories without sacrificing the taste and use lite!)

1. Brown your beef. Combine meat, seasoning, cheese and water. Mix all together.
2. Arrange crescent triangles in a circle on a round stone or round pan. Spoon meat mixture over rolls. Fold points of triangles over filling and tuck under base at center (filling will not be completely covered).
3. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350.

Optional: Shred lettuce, cube tomato, chop onion and olives. Place in center. V cut the top of a pepper and put salsa in it. Place in center.
Note: Even if you can't do all of the garnishments, try just a little salsa or lite sour cream dollop on the top of the ring. Serve with a different veggie if you don't have time to prepare the lettuce and other toppings.
