Ingredients
  

  • 2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 cups cooked turkey shredded
  • 4 ounces green chilies diced
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 package taco seasoning (or 3 tablespoons homemade taco seasoning)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • lettuce shredded
  • salsa

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In a large skillet add the water, shredded turkey, green chilies and taco seasoning. Cook over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until the turkey reheated.
  • Remove from heat and set aside.
  • On an ungreased large cookie sheet, arrange crescent dough triangles in a ring so the short sides of triangles form a 6-inch circle in the center. (Place a small bowl in the center to help with arranging the crescent dough). The dough will overlap.
  • Spoon turkey meat over the wide section of the roll close to the center. Sprinkle cheese on top.
  • Bring each triangle tip up over the filling, tucking it under the bottom layer of dough to secure it.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until ring turns a golden brown.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Place a bowl salsa in the center of the ring for dipping.
  • Garnish with shredded lettuce, if desired.

Notes

TIP: You can bake your turkey breast in the oven, or in your Instant Pot, or use leftover turkey!
TIP: Placing a small bowl in the center will help you arrange the crescent roll triangles.
TIP: It's best to grate cheese at home as pre-shredded cheese tends to be coated with an anti-caking agent that prevents it from melting completely.
