This taco-filled crescent ring is the perfect meal for Taco Night! Dress it up with fresh shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and taco sauce for a fun twist on tacos!


  • 1 lb (500g) ground beef
  • 1 package (35g) Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
  • 1 cup (250mL) shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 cans (8 count each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Original Crescents
  • Shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced ripe olives, taco sauce or salsa, as desired


  1. Heat oven to 375°F (190°C). In 10-inch (25 cm) nonstick skillet, cook beef until no longer pink. Add taco seasoning mix and 1/2 cup (125 mL) water. Simmer 3 to 4 minutes or until slightly thickened. In medium bowl, mix beef mixture and cheese.
  2. Unroll both cans of dough; separate into 16 triangles. On ungreased large cookie sheet, arrange triangles in ring so short sides of triangles form a 5-inch (13 cm) circle in centre. Dough will overlap. Dough ring should look like the sun.
  3. Spoon beef mixture on the half of each triangle closest to centre of ring.
  4. Bring each dough triangle up over filling, tucking dough under bottom layer of dough to secure it. Repeat around ring until entire filling is enclosed (some filling might show a little).
  5. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until dough is golden brown and thoroughly baked. Cool 5 to 10 minutes before cutting into serving slices.
