Taco Ring Recipe
1 pound ground beef *1 cup grated cheese
1 packet taco seasoning * 2 packet of crescent rolls
2 tablespoons water
Preheat oven to 375. Cook the beef on medium heat until brown. (make sure to drain the grease) Stir in taco seasoning mix and water. Cook for 5 more minutes.

Unrolls 1st pack of crescent rolls and place them in a ring on a pizza pan with the edges overlapping and points facing out. (Your crescent rolls will hang off the pan. Don't worry, you'll be folding them back in.)
Unrolls your second pack of crescent rolls and place them ontop between the first layer.

Put the beef on large part of crescent rolls and sprinkle with cheese. Fold over the points of the rolls and tuck the edges underneath. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Mexican Churros
1 cup water 2 Eggs
2 Tbs brown sugar 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt 1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup all-purpose flour Canola Oil
In a medium sauce pan, add the water, brown sugar, salt, and butter and heat to a boil. Remove from heat and add flour. Mix until well blended.
In a separate bowl, mix the eggs and vanilla together and then add mixture to flour mixture. Stir until well blended and all the egg is completely mixed in.
Fill the dough mixture in a pastry bag attached with a star tip.
In a separate shallow plate, combine together sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
In a 10-12 inch frying pan, add about 2 inch deep of canola oil on medium heat and heat until it reaches 375 degree F.
Test oil by placing a small amount of dough in it. Dough should bubble up right away or that means the oil is not hot enough.
Once the oil is ready, squeeze the batter into the hot oil to make roughly about 9-10 inch long churros. Use a small knife to release the dough from the tip of the pastry bag.
Fry about 3-4 churros at a time, don't crowd the frying pan or they will stick together. Turn the churros after 1 minute and continue to fry for another minute on the other side until golden brown. Remove the churros and drain on a paper towel for a minute, then roll them on the cinnamon sugar while they are still hot.
