Taco‬ Ring
Just from the picture of this delicious looking party starter, y'all are gonna love this. Put it in the center of the table with a pie cutter spatula (Cutco) and some small plates and watch your guests devour this in seconds.  It's a feeding frenzy!!  Kinda like Wild Kingdom.

30 Minutes

6 - 8

2 Crescent dinner roll tubes
1 Lb. ground beef, crumbled 
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 ½ cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Shredded lettuce
2 tomatoes, diced  
½ small can black olives (sliced) 
1 Avocado, diced
1-2 Jalapeños,diced
Sour cream, dollop or two

Separate the Crescent rolls and lay out in a circle, pointed ends out on the Large Cookie Sheet or pizza pan in a circle sprayed very lightly with cooking spray. 
Use some of the leftover Crescent rolls to to make the center a bit thicker as this will hold the meat.
Brown meat in a frying pan until no longer pink. 
Drain fat.
Add taco seasoning as directed on package, reducing the water to a scant-⅓ cup from the ½ cup called for. 
Drain excess liquid from meat.
Sprinkle meat mixture in a circle inside the crescent rolls, then sprinkle 1 cup of the cheese over the meat. 
Pull Crescent roll points over meat and cheese and tuck in.
Bake at 350o  until pastry is golden brown (30 min).

Add remaining ½ cup of cheese, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, black olives, and Jalapeños (if using), into the middle of the ring, then add a few dollops of sour cream if desired, before serving.
