Tasty Tuesday - Grands Taco Melts

Tasty Tuesday

 Today's Tasty Tuesday recipe comes from the Pillsbury website. I found this recipe a few years ago and have made it quite a bit ever since. It's a great kid friendly recipe and a easy one to throw together on a hectic night.

Grands Taco Melts


  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands refrigerated biscuits (any variety)
  • 1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  •  1 1/2 C. thick and chunky salsa
  • 2/3 C. water
  • 1 C.shredded Monterey Jack cheese or Mexican blend cheese
  • 1C. sour cream (optional)
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
In medium skillet cook your ground beef and drain then add taco seasoning mix, water and 1/2 C. of the salsa. Cook until thickened.
Take the biscuits and press each one into a 6-in round. OK this is where i do it a little different from the recipe. I find it hard to press the biscuits into a large enough circle without tearing them apart of making holes in the dough. I usually press 2 biscuits together for me and the hubby's and then 1 for each child.
Next fill each flattened biscuit with some of the taco mixture then add one tablespoon of cheese on top of the mixture.
Fold dough over filling and press to seal. Take a fork and press the edges shut, you all know what i mean right?
Place on greased cookie sheet.
Bake 9-14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with remaining salsa, cheese and sour cream if desired.
