This is a fun and interesting way to serve tacos. It's great for parties...kids and teens love it or just for offering your family something a little different. It's really easy to put together and serves a lot of people also. Here is what you will need for this:
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef or chuck, browned and drained
1 envelope taco seasoning mix
1/4 cup water
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cans crescent rolls (I used Pillsbury)
1 egg white, beaten
salsa, lettuce, diced onion...whatever you want for garnish
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
After you have browned your beef and drained any excess grease, add the taco seasoning and water. Bring up to a bubble and simmer just until most of the liquid has absorbed. Turn the heat off and stir in 1 cup of the cheese.
On a large pizza pan arrange the crescent rolls overlapping the widest ends with the small pointed ends pointing outward. Seal the edges by pressing the seams together. You will be serving on the pizza pan, so if your pan is like mine and has been used a lot and doesn't look all that pretty, you can cover it in foil. Spray it lightly with nonstick spray. Leave your crescent rolls in the refrigerator until you are ready to unroll them and they will be much easier to work with. I took mine out a little early and they weren't as cold as they should have been.
Sprinkle the other cup of cheese over the taco filling. Pull each crescent roll up and over the filling and press it down to seal the dough together. Brush the top dough with the beaten egg white! Place in oven that has been preheated to 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and place whatever condiments you want to serve in the center. I placed a bowl of picante sauce on a plate with shredded lettuce and chopped onions. Use whatever your family likes...sour cream, salsa, olives....the possibilities are endless. Slice in sections between the rolls.
