  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef until no longer pink. Add taco seasoning mix and 1/2 cup water. Simmer 3 to 4 minutes or until slightly thickened. In medium bowl, mix beef mixture and cheese.
  • 2
    Unroll both cans of dough; separate into 16 triangles. On ungreased large cookie sheet, arrange triangles in ring so short sides of triangles form a 5-inch circle in center. Dough will overlap. Dough ring should look like the sun.
  • 3
    Spoon beef mixture on the half of each triangle closest to center of ring.
  • 4
    Bring each dough triangle up over filling, tucking dough under bottom layer of dough to secure it. Repeat around ring until entire filling is enclosed (some filling might show a little).
  • 5
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until dough is golden brown and thoroughly baked. Cool 5 to 10 minutes before cutting into serving slices.

Expert Tips

  • Don't care for ground beef? Substitute chicken instead!
  • Spicy taco seasoning mix is a nice option for those who prefer a little more kick! Or, sliced jalapeño chiles will also do the trick.
