A Special Request
The Foodie Daughter asked that I make a Taco Ring for dinner. Of course I was happy to oblige. But first I needed to make a grocery run as I needed some fresh veggies and a product I don't normally have on hand.
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
I used almost all of this for the dish as I wanted the meat to have a bit of a kick to it. Any remaining spice mix can be stored in an airtight container.
1 pound ground beef
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 packages crescent rolls*
*(If you guessed that this was what I don't normally have on hand, you would be correct.)
yellow bell pepper
shredded sharp cheddar cheese, not shown
yellow onion, not shown
The onion, tomatoes and bell pepper were chopped. The shredded lettuce was also rinsed.
The crescent rolls were laid around the edge of the pizza stone, about two inches in from the edge. The points face out.
Meanwhile, the meat and onion were cooked and then drained. Two tablespoons water and the taco seasoning were added to the meat. Remember, you can add more or less taco seasoning, depending on your particular tastes. This was then mixed well. Once the meat had cooled a bit, the shredded cheddar cheese was mixed in.
The meat mixture was carefully placed around the ring of crescent dough.
