A tender, flaky biscuit wraps around your favorite taco fillings in an easy, flavor-packed hot sandwich.

1
package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
2/3
cup water
1 1/2
cups Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa
1
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef, cooked, drained
1
can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ biscuits
1
cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese or Mexican cheese blend (4 oz)
1
cup sour cream, if desired

Steps

  • 1 In medium saucepan, cook taco seasoning mix, water, 1/2 cup of the salsa and cooked ground beef until thickened.
  • 2 Press each biscuit into 6-inch round. Spoon 1/3 cup meat mixture and 1 tablespoon cheese onto center of each round. Fold dough in half over filling; press to seal. Place on greased cookie sheet.
  • 3 Bake at 375°F 9 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with remaining salsa, cheese and sour cream.

Expert Tips

If you're watching fat grams, use reduced-fat sour cream or reduced-fat or fat-free plain yogurt instead of regular sour cream. To complete the menu, add a crisp green salad of romaine lettuce topped with fresh orange slices drizzled with your favorite reduced-fat dressing.

*Based on ingredient costs to create four servings of the recipe and side dish (Green Giant Tuscan Seasoned Broccoli Steamers).
