  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Heat olive oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes or until softened. Stir in ground beef; cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until browned and no longer pink. Drain. Reduce heat to low.
  • 2 Return skillet with browned meat to stove. Stir in tomato sauce, oregano, cumin, salt, cinnamon, black beans and raisins. Cook 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly heated. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm.
  • 3 Meanwhile, using a rolling pin, roll out each biscuit into 6-inch round. Lightly brush top side of each biscuit with egg white; fold biscuit in half. Place folded biscuits on large ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 4 Bake 13 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to cooling rack; cool 5 minutes.
  • 5 Using a small serrated knife, make a 5-inch slit in center of curved side of each biscuit. Spoon about 1/2 cup ground beef mixture into opening. Evenly divide lettuce among gorditas. Top each with 1 tablespoon cheese. Place gorditas on serving platter; sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with sour cream and lime wedges.
