Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 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 can (16.3 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Southern Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits (8 Count)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese or Mexican cheese blend (2 oz)
  • 1 cup sour cream, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In medium saucepan, cook beef, drain. Add taco seasoning mix, water and 1/2 cup of the salsa until thickened.

    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 and sour cream.

  • 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.
