Ingredients to Make Crescent Taco Ring

Crescent Roll Taco Ring Ingredients:

How to make taco crescent roll ring:

First, go ahead and pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.

Next, brown the ground beef in a large pan over medium heat until no longer pink and fully cooked through.

Stir ¼ cup of the salsa and taco seasoning and cook for 3-5 minutes.

Then mix in 1 cup of the shredded cheese.

Unroll the crescent rolls.  On a large baking sheet or pizza pan arrange the crescent roll dough into a large sun pattern on the pan. 

The short end should be on the inside and the point of the triangle should point outward.  The crescent dough will overhang the pan and overlap each other.

The crescent rolls formed into a ring on a pizza pan.

Next place the beef mixture on the center part of the rolls and top with the remaining shredded cheese.

Then fold each triangle over the filling and tuck it in under the center of the ring.  I pressed it slightly to the other dough to make sure it doesn’t come undone while baking.

Enjoy! Keep reading for the full recipe.

Tips to work with Crescent Rolls:

Here are a few tips to making with crescent roll dough even easier.

  • Make sure that the dough is cold. The dough can be sticky but will be less sticky when it’s cold.
  • Separate the dough into the individual triangles before forming the taco ring.
  • Make sure that the beef mixture is ready before assembling the taco ring so that the dough doesn’t get too warm.

Variation Ideas:

  • You can easily use ground chicken or ground turkey instead of the beef in this recipe.
  • Add onion to the ground beef when browning. Then add the beef and onion mixture to the taco ring.
  • If you’re worried about it being too spicy, use water and taco seasoning instead of the salsa in the beef mixture.
  • You can use a crescent roll sheet or pastry instead of crescent rolls. Just cut them into triangles to assemble the taco ring.
