TASTY TUESDAY - TACO RING

Ingredients:
1 lb lean ground beef
1 package taco seasoning mix
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons water
2 packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 medium bell pepper
1 cup salsa
3 cups lettuce, shredded
1 medium tomato
1/4 cup onion, chopped (optional)
1/2 cup pitted ripe black olives (optional)
sour cream (optional)


Directions:
-Cook ground beef in large skillet over medium heat 7-9 minutes or until beef is no longer pink; drain.
-Remove pan from heat.
-Stir in taco seasoning mix, cheese and water.
-Preheat oven to 375°F.
-Unroll crescent dough; separate into triangles.
-Arrange triangles in a circle on Classic Round Pizza Stone with wide ends overlapping in center and points toward outside. (There should be a 5 inch diameter opening in center.) I use my Pampered Chef pizza stone, but any flat round pan should work--perhaps even a pizza sheet, but I'd spray it with Pam before adding the crescent rolls.

-Scoop meat mixture evenly onto widest end of each triangles up over filling and tuck under wide ends of dough at center of ring.
-Bake at 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
-Shred lettuce and chop tomato, onion, olives, and bell pepper (if desired). I always add this to the center of my ring and top with sour cream.
