Easy Dinner Recipe: Taco Ring

We all want to be able to get through our days with as little stress as possible, that includes dinner. Yesterday was definitely one of those days. I did not want to pay someone to feed my family but I still wanted a truly yummy meal that didn't take all night to prepare. So I defaulted to one of my favorite Easy Dinner Recipes that always puts a smile on everyone's face. And with 6 people, that isn't always an easy task.

I even took pictures to ensure you would be able to repeat the process and have happy campers in your household too. Do Not make fun of my messy kitchen. ;)

Step 1: Brown 1 lb of hamburger.

Step 2: Drain, Return to pan and add in 1 pkg of taco seasoning.

Step 3: Add shredded cheese and mix well. I use a full 16oz of cheese when I make this recipe. I try to put about 1/3 inside with the meat and the rest on the outside.

Step 4: Add 1 can of Mexi-corn and 1 can of Rotel tomatoes, draining both before. I also usually add 1 can of sliced black olives, but I was out this go round. Mix well.

Step 5: Take 1 cans of Pillsbury Dough Crescent rolls and break them into their triangles. Here is where I pull out my round Pampered Chef stone. I love that it makes the crust crispy without drying out the center. Then take 1 can of triangles laying them down on the stone, slightly overlapping each other into a starburst with the largest part of the triangle toward the center. Take the second can and repeat the process but moving about 2 inches further outward with the starburst, staggering them between the first layer's triangles. I know it sounds crazy, but this part is HUGE! So i made sure to get a picture.

Step 6: Fill with Taco meat mixture.

Step 7: Roll up each end of the triangles into the center.

Step 8: Top with cheese and bake at 350* for 20 minutes or until golden brown on top and cheese is bubbly. 

My six year old started off dinner saying he wasn't hungry and he wasn't going to eat. Then I placed the taco ring in front of him and less than 5 minutes later, it was gone and he was a happy little boy!!

I always serve mine with a dollop of Sour cream and a side salad or spanish rice. Super Easy and Super Yummy!! Enjoy!
