Ingredients

2 c
(8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
2 Tbsp
water
2 to 4 Tbsp
taco seasoning
1/2 lb
ground beef
2
tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
1/2 medium
head iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 medium
tomato, chopped
4
green onions, sliced
1/2 c
sliced ripe olives
2
jalapeno peppers, sliced
sour cream and salsa, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, combine 1 cup cheese, water and taco seasoning. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 16 balls.
2
Place meatballs on a greased rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 12 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Drain meatballs on paper towels. Reduce heat to 375°.
3
Arrange crescent rolls on a greased 15-in. pizza pan, forming a ring with pointed ends facing the outer edge of the pan and wide ends overlapping.
4
Place a meatball on each roll; fold point over meatball and tuck under wide end of roll (meatball will be visible). Repeat. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until rolls are golden brown.
5
Transfer to a serving platter. Fill the center of the ring with lettuce, tomato, onions, olives, jalapenos, remaining cheese, and sour cream and salsa if desired. Yield: 16 servings.
