Tacos! One of my favorite things to put recipe twists on! Whether it’s Taco Spaghetti, Taco Soup or Taco Dip, I love finding new & different ways to eat tacos!

The Taco Ring was introduced to me when I was 12 years old and my Mom took me to a Pampered Chef party. (And people wonder why I love cooking so much!) We made taco rings at the party and the recipe instantly became a favorite at the Bond house!

Over the years I’ve put my own spin on the taco ring, with a buffalo chicken version and a breakfast version

For this recipe, I kept it classic, but added two of my favorite taco mix-ins, onions and bell peppers!

What is a taco ring?

A taco ring is made with 2 cans of crescent roll dough, shaped into a ring with a hole in the middle. It’s filled with taco seasoned ground beef and cheddar cheese. The crescent rolls are then rolled over the ground beef filling and the ring is baked in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

How to assemble a taco ring?

To make it easy to assemble, start by placing a glass in the middle of a baking sheet. Assemble the crescent rolls around the glass. Spoon the ground beef mixture onto the crescent rolls, then slowly remove the glass, so that all of the ground beef mixture stays on the crescent rolls and does not fall in the hole in the middle.

Wrap the crescent roll dough up and over the ground beef and tuck under the beef in the middle.

What to serve with a Taco Ring

I always serve it with sour cream, salsa and guacamole for dipping. You can also serve it with Green Chili Queso Dip (a personal & fan favorite!), Mexican Rice and/or Deconstructed Mexican Street Corn on the side.

Can you make a taco ring with ground turkey?

Yes, you can substitute ground turkey or ground chicken for the ground beef in this recipe.

How to eat a Taco Ring

Slice the ring, like you would a pie, then use a pie server or spatula to serve the pieces. To eat it, use a fork to dig right in!
