Basketball tournament time is filled with appetizers, snacks and all of my favorite dips! This baked taco ring is always a hit during tournament time with seasoned beef and cheese baked inside a crusty crescent roll shell. It is so easy to prep and pop in the oven while you enjoy the game! It’s great to prep ahead and transports well to parties as well!

In amongst the snacks, I do find myself with occasional heartburn. Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets  (also referred to as ODT) is a proactive way to help frequent heartburn sufferers keep heartburn at bay.

Always talk to your doctor or a licensed professional before taking a new medication.

If you suffer from heartburn two or more days per week, ODT can provide affordable relief. I love that I can grab it at Walmart (or other retailers) while grocery shopping (check where you can find Omeprazole ODT near you here).

It’s very convenient and I love having tablets that can easily dissolve on the tongue. I don’t need water so I can take them discreetly any time (and any place). These strawberry flavored tablets dissolve quickly and easily since they’re small (same size as shown on the box). While Omeprazole ODT doesn’t provide immediate relief, it can come in as little as 24 hours (but it can take up to 1-4 days for full effect).

Use Omeprazole ODT as directed for 14 days to treat frequent heartburn. Do not take it for more than 14 days or more frequently than every 4 months unless directed by a doctor.

Tips for Working with Crescent Dough

Working with crescent dough is not difficult, but there are a few tricks to make it easier.

  • Ensure the dough is cold before you begin. Warm dough is sticky and can tear easily. Separate it carefully from the other pieces at the perforated sections.
  • Gently pull the pieces so they are uniformly shaped before creating the ring portion.
  • Make sure your pan is large enough and use parchment paper to keep the taco ring from sticking.

How to Make a Taco Ring

  1. Prep ground beef as you would for tacos with taco seasoning (per recipe below). Then toss with 1/2 cup of shredded cheese.
  2. Prepare the crescent rolls in a circular fashion with the tips on the bottom edges touching each other. You’ll want about a 4″ circle in the middle.
  3. Place a scoop of the meat/cheese mixture in the center of each roll and then fold the top of the triangle over the bottom of the triangle and tuck that point under.
  4. Bake until the tops are lightly browned.

Cool and then serve with your favorite toppings. We love an assortment of classic taco toppings like Pico de Gallo, shredded lettuce, or guacamole.

What To Do With Leftover Taco Ring

This recipe makes really yummy leftovers, especially on top of a bed of lettuce, taco salad-style.

To Store: Put leftover pieces in airtight containers with some add-ons (listed above) and then seal tightly. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to eat.

To Refresh: Enjoy it cold like a taco salad or heat it up in the microwave. Add a dash or two of hot sauce to refresh the flavors!

  1. The taco ring looks easy to make.i was just wondering how mant crest roll do i have to buy to make this.

  2. Not too sure how to rate this recipe. The construction was fine except I did not use two entire tubes of cresents. The flavor and presentation is great. BUT, I could not get the bottom crust cooked through. Yikes! Had to peel it off. Any suggestions on what went wrong?3 stars

    1. Hi Cindy, you can overlap the crescent rolls or maybe make a slightly larger circle to use up the entire two tubes. For the bottom, I am not sure why it did not cook through. Did you cook it until lightly browned on top? You could tent it in foil to keep the top from browning further while the bottom cooked through.

  3. I’ve used the “Taco Ring” recipe before, it’s great! What I would really like to know is, “What is that tool used to breakup the ground beef called and where can I get one or two?”4 stars
