Grands! Taco Melts

Oh. My. Gosh.
I don't think I could correctly describe the amazingness of this recipe right here. I'll let you all try it out and see what I'm talking about :)

What you need:
  • 1 pkg. taco seasoning
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 can refrigerated biscuits (8 count)
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (or Cheddar)
  • 1 cup sour cream, if desired

Brown ground beef.

Flatten biscuits into 6-inch rounds onto a greased sheet.

Combine taco seasoning, water, 1/2 cup salsa and ground beef; cook until thickened.

Top each biscuit with taco meat and 1 tbsp. or so of cheese.

Fold dough over filling and press to seal. Bake at 375 for 9 to 14 minutes.

Doesn't that look awesome?

Serve with remaining salsa, cheese and sour cream, if desired.

Update 5.14.2011: I found out that they are supposed to be crimped with a fork, somewhat like a calzone. Check out the original on

I made these tonight and they were amazing!! Everyone was asking for more. I had a problem keeping them closed but they were very good. These will be a regular in our house.

It was pretty tricky to get some of mine to stay closed, but I found it was easiest when the dough is "thawed" so-to-speak. Because the refrigerated biscuits tend to get more sticky as they warm up :)
