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.

6 - 8
2 Crescent dinner roll tubes
1 Lb. ground beef, crumbled
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 ½ cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 tomatoes, diced
½ small can black olives (sliced)
1 Avocado, 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.
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.
