My husband carries on a weekly affair with tacos and taco meat. It is his must have food that he would seemingly seize to exist if he didn’t have it. He will buy an absurd amount of ground beef and make a ridiculous amount of taco meat. Now, I am not saying I don’t like tacos. I enjoy them from time to time. It is just that I cannot bring myself to eat them multiple times a week. I am perfectly fine leaving my designated taco consumption day as Tuesday.
Anyway, this weekend, my husband made…you guessed it….taco meat! The problem we ran into is that we did not have any taco shells or taco soft wraps. What we did have was plenty of was crescent rolls. So, we decided to make a quick taco wheel. It was not perfectly round and was nothing fancy, but I have to say that the taste of the crescent rolls did add a little something to the tacos and it was much easier to eat. I will definitely be making this again.
What You Will Need:
- Taco Meat
- 2 – 3 cans of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
- Shredded Cheese (Fancy Mix aka more than one flavor cheese mix)
How to Assemble the Taco Wheel:
- Preheat your oven to 350°
- Open the crescent roll cans.
- Break into triangles.
- Connect all the triangles together on the pan, at the base of the triangles (wider part). Let the tips of the triangles hang over the edges of the pan.
- Make sure to press and spread the base a bit. This allows for a little more room for the taco meat.
- Next, take your taco meat and scoop it onto the base of the triangles. Do this all the way around.
- Take your shredded cheese, and sprinkle a good amount along the top of the taco meat. (You want a good amount as this acts as the glue to hold the wheel together).
- Fold the triangle tips over the top of the cheese and meat.
- Secure the tip of the triangle to the crescent dough at the base of the triangle.
- Once all the tips have been secured, place the pan in the oven.
- Bake for 10 minutes, or until the dough rises and is a light golden brown.
- Remove from the oven.
- Let cool for 5 minutes.
- Cut out a piece of the taco wheel.
