    OMG this recipe is so old--a classic! It's in All the Best.

    I bet if you google Pampered Chef Taco Ring you'll find it.

    The one I have is in the "All the Best". It has the braid and ring recipes (classics)....so that's a good book to add to your collection.

    Here is the recipe as written on Joyce's Fine Cooking site:

    Taco Ring

    3/4 lb. ground beef, cooked
    1 pkg taco seasoning
    1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
    2 Tbsp water
    2 8oz pkg crescent roll dough
    1 med green pepper
    1/2 head lettuce, shredded
    1 med tomato, diced
    1 small onion, diced
    1/2 cup sliced black olives
    1 cup salsa
    Sour cream

    Heat oven to 375. Combine meat, taco mix, cheese, and water. Arrange crescent triangles in a circle with bases overlapping and points out on the 13" stone, leaving a 5" circle in center. Spoon meat on triangle bases. Fold points over meat and tuck under. Bake 20-25 min until brown. Cut off the top of the pepper. Fill pepper with salsa and place in center of ring. Mound lettuce, tomato, onions, and olives around pepper. Garnish with sour cream.

    Serves 8.

    I thought so, I thought I remembered my mom making it when I was a kid, maybe from her hosting a show.

    Just a piece of information when laying out the ring (cresent rolls), look at your stone like a clock, lay the first piece at 12, 6, 9 and 3. The space left should if layed out correctly hold a dollar bill folded in half. Then you just fill in the rest of the clock. My director told me this. Really help you to lay out a perfect ring.

    Yes! It has a lot of other great recipes , including the Chicken Ring, and homemade salsa & guacamole- everyone LOVEs them (which is great to show when doing another Mexican recipe - fajitas or the mexican lasagna in the DCB).

    I guess I need the round stone before I can make it! I've just heard about it, so I was going to try it, but I guess it will have to wait!

    Yes, to make it in a ring you need a round stone, however, it tastes just the same if you make it as a braid on the large bar pan. Just lay out the dough in a rectangle.

    Oh awesome, so do the same thing, but make a rectangle obviously? But still layer and all that good stuff?
