Tasty Turkey Taco Ring

Long time, no food post. I swear there is more to life than wedding-planning, but right now that's sort of taken over my brain.  I've actually been cooking a ton.  It was an escape during the high stress and it's been a nice task to take up my afternoons/evenings.  Not gonna lie, there is something incredibly appealing to having dinner on the table for The Fiance when he gets home at night.  I totally dig being a housewife.  THERE, I said it.

Tasty Taco Ring
1 lb ground turkey breast
8 oz can tomato sauce
1 C Mexican blend shredded cheese (low fat)
1/2 pkg taco seasoning
1 can reduced-fat crescent rolls
shredded lettuce
diced tomatoes
diced peppers
diced avocado
low-fat sour cream
    Preheat oven according to package of crescent rolls.  Brown the turkey in a large skillet and drain any drippings.  Stir in tomato sauce and taco seasoning.  Add cheese and stir until melted.  Turn off heat.  Open rolls and separate into triangles.  Place triangles flat on a round pizza pan, with the points facing out, arranging them in a circle and overlapping the corners slightly.  Spoon the meat mixture onto the inner wide part of each roll.  Fold the outside point of each roll over the filling and tuck under, covering as much of the filling as possible.  When finished it should resemble a wreath.  Bake 15-18 minutes, or until crescent rolls are golden brown.  Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes.  Fill the center with lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, sour cream, and avocado.  Slice and serve.

    Very delicious!  Enjoy!
