UPDATE - I'm participating in Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Life Friday! If you haven't been to her blog yet, you should check it out! http://www.kellyskornerblog.com/

Went to Lauren's for dinner last night. Shannon started a lil get together for three of us to have dinner once a month, rotating homes. Lauren made the below Taco Ring which she got from my friend Claire Brinkley. It was SO good! Thanks for having us over LG - always great to catch up with you and Shannon!

Taco Ring
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 (35 g) pkg. taco seasoning mix
2 tablespoons water
2 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
1 (8 oz) can refried beans
2 (8 oz) packages crescent roll dough
1/2 head lettuce, shredded
1 large tomato, coarsely chopped
1 c. salsa (or more if desired)
1 c. sour cream (to garnish)
1 c. guacamole (optional)
¼ c. black olives (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cook ground beef and onion. Drain grease. Add taco
seasoning mix and water. Simmer for 5 minutes.
On a lightly greased pizza pan, arrange the crescent
triangles in a circle, with the larger sides of the dough
overlapping each other a bit in center, and the points to the
outside (you should have a 5-inch diameter circle in the
center). Spoon a small amount of meat mixture, cheese
and beans over rolls. Fold points of triangles over the filling,
and tuck under base at center (filling will not be completely
covered). Bake 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
Add any topping you wish (lettuce, tomato, salsa,
guacamole, and olives).
