Deb's notes for this recipe:
This takes a little time to put together but is really good. I serve it a lot at parties.

Separate the crescent pastry and lay out in a circle, pointed ends out on a foil lined pizza pan, sprayed very lightly with cooking spray. Use some of the leftover crescent rolls to to make the center a bit thicker as this will hold the meat.
Brown meat in a frying pan until no longer pink. Drain fat and add taco seasoning as directed on package, reducing the water to a scant 1/3 cup from the 1/2 cup called for. Drain excess liquid from meat.
Sprinkle meat mixture in a circle inside the crescent rolls, then sprinkle 1 cup of the cheese over the meat. Pull crescent roll points over meat and cheese and tuck in.

Bake at 350 degrees until pastry is golden brown.
Add remaining 1/2 cup of cheese, chopped lettuce, tomato, black olives, and jalapenos (if using), into the middle of the ring, then add a few dollops of sour cream if desired, before serving.

My kids ask for this at least three times a month. We like it better then regular tacos. I mix the cheese in with the meat so it melts all throughout. I also serve the sour cream with salsa mixed into it for a real taco flavor!

Thanks so much. This was a big hit. next time i think i will substitute the salad with steamed brocolli and coliflour and carrot meledy mix. * but i will still have the salad on the side.
again thank you so much for the recipe my hubby said he dreamed about it last night, lol.
