  • Sheet pan
  • Skillet or saute pan


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup white onion, diced
  • 1 ounce package Taco Seasoning Mix
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cans crescent-style dinner rolls 8 ounce each can
  • 1/2 cup guacamole
  • shredded lettuce for garnish
  • tomato, diced for garnish
  • salsa (optional) for garnish
  • green onions, sliced (optional) for garnish
  • additional shredded cheese (optional) for garnish
  • sour cream (optional) for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Heat a large skillet over low-medium heat. Cook the ground beef and onions until the
  • beef is no longer pink. Drain grease if needed, and return meat to the skillet.
  • Add the water and taco seasoning. Continue to cook until the mixture begins to thicken.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Open both cans of dough, unroll, and separate into triangles. Using a large baking sheet
  • or pizza pan lined with parchment paper, place the wide sides of the triangles in the center with the tips overlapping. The center should form a circle. The longer tips of the triangle will face outward, and the end result will look like a sunburst.
  • Spoon the beef around the overlapping portions of the dough to form a large circle. Top the beef with shredded cheese. Pick up the outer point of a triangle and lay it over the top of the meat and cheese. Tuck the point underneath the inside of the circle of dough so the meat and cheese is covered. Continue this around the circle until all the outer points are folded over and tucked into the center.
  • Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until the ring is golden brown. Cut into slices and serve with your favorite toppings.


Tips & Notes:
*To help the uncooked crescent rolls stay in a circular shape, place a 4 to 5-inch wide bowl in the center and work around it. Remove the bowl before baking.
*Apply a light egg wash (1 egg + 1 tablespoon of water) to give the taco ring a nice, shiny brown look after it bakes.
*Don’t overfill the crescent dough. Otherwise, the filling will spill out of the openings while the ring bakes.
