Chicken Taco Ring

This recipe came from The Daily Smash

Our entire family enjoyed it. There is another one of these on our blog that I made a while back and it is a Chicken Brocoli Ring. We enjoyed both of them, but my kids raved more about this one when dinner was over. My 5 year old saw the olives and tomatoes go in and said yuck, I'm not eating that, but by time it was all cooked, she enjoyed it.

Chicken Taco Ring
2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
1/3 cup finely crushed tortilla chips
2 cups finely chopped rotisserie chicken (I used chicken boiled in broth)
3/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, undrained
1/4 cup chopped pitted ripe olives
1 plum tomato, seeded and chopped
1 tablespoon taco seasoning
1 tablespoon lime juice

1. Grease a 12-in. pizza pan. Unroll crescent dough.

2. Lay the crescent triangles in a circle with the wide end being in the middle and the pointed end going out. Lightly press wide ends together.

3. In a small bowl, combine the chicken, cheese, mayonnaise, chilies, olives, tomato, taco seasoning, lime juice and tortilla chips. Stir until all is combined.

4. Spoon the chicken mixture in a circle over wide ends of dough. Fold points of triangles over filling and tuck under wide ends (filling will be visible).

5. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Garnish with sour cream, salsa, tomatoes and lime. (I didn't garnish with anything. We just served this with a salad.)

I *HATE* mayonaise. Is there anything I can substitute? Can I use less do you think? It seems like a lot. Thanks a bunch.

I love how you spell your name first :), secondly, the mayonaise is kind of what gives it moisture and holds all the ingredients together. When it's all mixed together and cooked, I didn't taste the "mayo" flavor, BUT, I would assume you could try to substitute it with sour cream? or maybe even some cream of chicken soup and see what happens. I wish I had a better answer for you. I think cream cheese might be too strong of a flavor to use, but that may work also. Good Luck. If you try it with something else, let us know.

I made this meal and cut everything in half so I wouldn't have left overs/served only 2. It was delicious! I didn't have any tortilla chips or olives and it still worked out really great.
