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


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


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium saucepan, cook the taco seasoning mix, water, 1/2 cup of the salsa and cooked ground beef until thickened.

Press each biscuit into a 6-inch round. Spoon 1/3 cup meat mixture and 1 tablespoon cheese onto the center of each round. Fold the dough in half over the filling; press to seal. Place on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 9 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with the remaining salsa, cheese and sour cream.

Tip: 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.
