Taco ring with beans is really delicious. I decided that I would post this since my kids are all growing up and they are asking me for recipes. This is a great go to when you need something last minute because you do not have a lot of time. And I am always changing up my recipes and my kids will say I did this and I say, oh I never do that any more. The original recipe came from The Pampered Chef when I use to sell their product. Now I add the beans and I like it even better.

How Do I Make Taco Ring with Beans?

Here’s the simple steps you’ll follow to make this Taco Ring (scroll down for the full recipe):

 

Taco Ring:

  • In a large skillet, place the ground beef.
  • Sprinkle the ground beef with salt and pepper; stir until browned.
  • Drain the oil.
  • Add the taco seasoning, cheese, beans, and water; allow the meat to set on low.
  • Using a pizza pan, place a cereal bowl in the middle, next separate the crescent rolls into individual pieces and place the wide side of the crescents around the bowl, overlapping the pieces.
  • After you have done that, remove the bowl; this allows you to make your circle in the center more uniform.
  • The circle in the middle is about 5-6″.
  • Using a 2″ cookie scoop place the meat and bean mixture on to the crescents.
  • Take the point of the crescent and pull it toward the middle covering most of the meat.
  • Bake in a preheated oven @ 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes and until the ring is nice and brown.
  • Cut the top off of the pepper and fill it with salsa.

 

Optional:

Tips and Tricks For Taco Ring with Beans:

 

  • When garnishing with lettuce, pepper, salsa, sour cream and olives, I like to place a small plate in the middle so that the lettuce doesn’t wilt as fast from the heat of the taco ring.
  • Use a 2″ cookie scoop to fill the crescents with the taco meat. It works very nicely. 
  • You can make it any way you want by adding the toppings that your family enjoys and taking away the toppings that they do not.
  • I add refried beans and this helps the meat go a little further and it also holds the meat together better than just adding the cheese.

 

 

 

Some Basic Taco Topping Suggestions Are:

 

  • Lettuce
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Shredded cheese
  • Green onions
  • Olives
  • Pico de gallo
  • Sour cream
  • Jalepenos
  • Green chilies
  • Black or kidney beans
