Spider Taco Ring

This is our dinner for Halloween night but, since we are having friends over, we thought it would be best to "taste test" it before hand.  It passed unanimously.  
The idea for this ring came from but we made a couple minor changes to it.  If you want the original, check out their web site. 
  • 1 1/2 pound hamburger, cooked and drained
  • 1 onion chopped 
  • 1 package taco seasoning - I always find taco seasoning spicy so that is why only one pack for 1 1/2 pounds of hamburger. 
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tubes refrigerated crescent rolls - we used the large size 
  • 1 tube refrigerated bread sticks
  • Shredded lettuce
  • 2 large pitted black olives
 Brown hamburger with onion, tip up pan and scoop out grease. Add taco seasoning and water. Simmer until liquid is gone. On cookie sheet, lay out the crescent rolls in a circle with the small point facing out.  Add hamburger mixture around the ring, flip the rolls into the center - if you have ever been to Pampered Chef party do it like they did, same thing. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
Spider Legs - Place spider legs on another cookie sheet bent in the shape of a "V". Bake until brown.
Putting it all together - Add lettuce to the center of the taco ring (you may have to cut the hole in the middle bigger just use a glass), then add olives for eyes.  Sticks the legs in.
Serve with cheese, tomato, salsa, raw onion, sour cream, more black olives and shredded lettuce or anything else you would put on your taco.

What lucky friends you have to share that with. And I'm so glad that you taste tested it first. Quality control is important. :)
