Best Taco Ring (From Pampered Chef)




1 1/2 cups diced cooked chicken or turkey

3/4 cup canned black beans, rinsed & drained

1/2 cup frozen corn (thawed in a colander under warm running water)

4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

2 to 3 tablespoons Homemade Taco Seasoning (or 1 store-bought packet)

2 (8-ounce) cans crescent rolls

Optional garnishes: diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, chopped cilantro, sour cream, salsa




Position rack in center of oven. Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a large bowl, combine diced chicken/turkey, black beans, corn, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, and taco seasoning. Mix until well combined.

Open both cans of crescent rolls and separate dough into a total of 16 triangles. Set out a large pizza pan or baking sheet. With the long points pointing outward like sun beans, arrange the triangles so that their short sides form a 5-inch circle in the center. The triangles will overlap.

Use a spoon to mound the chicken/turkey mixture along the inner half of the crescent rolls. Then bring the outer point of each triangle down over the top of the chicken/turkey mixture and tuck the dough under the interior circle.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes before garnishing with tomatoes, black olives, and cilantro. Serve warm with salsa and/or sour cream.
