Introducing another of our favorites...Taco Ring! It's based on a Pampered Chef recipe my mom told me about. You basically take taco meat, put it on crescent rolls, top with cheese and then fold over the tail of the crescent roll. You don't have to make it in a ring...but then you couldn't call it taco ring! Lately the folks at Pilsbury have been cutting their crescent rolls very unevenly. Some are huge and some are tiny. I use 2 cans of reduced fat crescent rolls (no trans fat like the originals) and can hardly tell a difference. For the taco meat I just buy ground turkey and a taco seasoning packet and follow their instructions. At some point I would like to learn to season taco meat on my own without having to buy the little packets. But for right now, the packet works.
Some of you may have noticed that this is our first meal with actual meat in it. We are not vegetarians, but we generally don't eat a lot of meat for a few reasons. The first reason is that I think raw meat is gross, particularly raw chicken. I can handle ground meat though, weird, I know. The second reason is that we are trying to cut out red meat for the health benefits. So when I do use ground meat, I use turkey instead of beef. The third reason is because when I have sucked it up and cooked meat, it doesn't seem to be of the highest quality. I have found a butcher in Poway that a friend of mine uses, so if I decide to make meat again, I will probably go there for a higher quality piece of meat than the Vons has to offer.
