Taco melts

Standard

Ingredients

1package (1 oz) Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix

2/3cup water

1 1/2cups Old El Paso® Thick ‘n Chunky salsa

1lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef, cooked, drained

1can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® biscuits

1cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese or Mexican cheese blend (4 oz)

1cup sour cream, if desired

Directions

  1. In medium saucepan, cook taco seasoning mix, water, 1/2 cup of the salsa and cooked ground beef until thickened.
  2. 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, cheese 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.
