Remember the good ole days of Pampered Chef parties and the quintessial taco ring? It seems like I went to several Pampered Chef parties in a short span of time and they were always serving up the taco ring. Don’t get me wrong- this thing is delicious and I was only too happy to get my grub on at each and every party
and drop lots of cash on cooking products.
But I never made my OWN taco ring until this year. Why oh why did I wait so long? I think it is because the actual assembly of the ring intimidated me. Yeah, you read that right. I was intimidated by crescent roll dough and how to manipulate it.
Fast forward a few years
more like 5….make that 10 years and I finally felt confident enough to try this on my own. It wasn’t hard, ya’ll! I don’t know why I was so overwhelmed by arranging dough back in the day pre-kids.
The Pampered Chef taco ring recipe is down below but for those of you who need a visual on how to make an actual taco ring- your prayers have been answered. There is now way I can write it down myself but hopefully you can figure it out by looking at my pretty pictures.
BTW, I thought 1 pound of meat was a bit much. Also, I used the leanest hamburger meat I could find, switched to reduced fat crescent rolls and reduced fat shredded cheese without compromising the taste of the taco ring. The kids loved it and so did I.
Now, be honest here. Who has attended a Pampered Chef Party and had one of these served up to them? Go ahead, raise your hand- don’t be shy!
