1 lb. ground turkey or beef, cooked and drained
1 pkg. med. taco mix
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 pkg. cheddar cheese, shredded
Dash cayenne powder (optional)
2 pkg. refrigerated crescent roll dough (8 triangles each)
Med. salsa
1 head lettuce, shredded
2 large tomatoes, chopped
Extra cheese (optional)
1 pkg. sour cream or cottage cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In large mixing bowl, combine meat, taco mix, garlic powder, olive oil, shredded cheese, and cayenne powder. Mix well and set aside.

On a large, round baking pan, arrange 16 crescent roll triangles in a circle - tips outward - around edge, leaving a hole in the middle large enough to hold the jar of salsa.

Place the meat mixture on top of the dough, towards the inside. Carefully wrap the tips of the dough inward to cover the meat mixture, forming the "ring" shape.

Place in preheated oven and bake at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes, or until top is golden.

When cooled, place salsa or sour cream in "hole". Serve with remaining ingredients.

Keep away from power-hungry individuals.
