Turkey Taco Ring Ingredients

Turkey Taco Ring raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 cups shredded cooked turkey
  • 1 (4-ounce) can diced green chilies
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix or 3 tablespoons of homemade taco seasoning
  • 2 cans of crescent roll dough
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  •  lettuce and salsa for topping

PRO TIP:

You can bake your turkey breast in the oven, or in your Instant Pot, or use leftover turkey.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

MIX-INS: You could also add whole kernel corn and/or black beans into the shredded turkey for a tasty way to add extra flavor.

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS: We love to serve this crescent roll taco ring with salsa, lettuce, green or black olives, guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo, diced tomatoes, or green onions.

CHEESE: Cheddar cheese is a classic choice, but if you have another favorite type of cheese, you can use that instead. Or, use a cheese mixture with cheddar and another kind such as Monterey Jack or a spicy jalapeño.

How To Make This Turkey Taco Ring Recipe

STEP ONE: Preheat your oven to 375°F.

STEP TWO: In a large skillet, add the water, shredded turkey meat, green chilies, and taco seasoning. Cook over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until the turkey is reheated. Remove from the heat and set aside.

STEP THREE: On an ungreased large cookie sheet, arrange the crescent dough triangles in a ring, so the short sides of the triangles form a 6-inch circle in the center. It’s okay if the bottoms of the triangles overlap.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Placing a small bowl in the center will help you arrange the crescent roll triangles.

STEP FOUR: Spoon turkey mixture over the wide section of the roll close to the center of the ring.

STEP FIVE: Sprinkle cheese on top.

PRO TIP:

It’s best to grate cheese at home, as pre-shredded cheese tends to be coated with a preservative that prevents it from melting completely.

STEP SIX: Fold triangle points up over the filling, tucking it under the bottom layer of dough to secure it.

STEP SEVEN: Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the ring turns golden brown. Allow the ring to cool for 5 minutes before slicing.

PRO TIP:

Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to check your taco ring at the lower end of the recommended baking time.

STEP EIGHT: Place a bowl of salsa in the center of the ring for dipping. Garnish with shredded lettuce and any other favorite toppings, if desired.

How To Serve

You can also garnish with shredded lettuce if desired. I also like this ooey-gooey cheese dip, homemade ranch crack dip, some cool sour cream, and creamy guacamole.
