The Taco Ring (aka Taco Bake)




This is my most favorite dish of all time. Probably because it's the first "real" dinner I've ever made when I was in college. My friend Erin taught me the recipe YEARS ago after she learned it from another friend. It's always a hit.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cans of Pillsbury Dough Biscuits (I used reduced fat Grands)
  • 1 to 1.5 pounds of extra lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • 3 - 4 cups of shredded cheese (cheddar or mexican)
  • 1 can of salsa (optional)
  • 1 can of sour cream (optional)

Directions:
  1. Brown the ground beef in a medium sized skillet and add onions
  2. Meanwhile, pre-heat oven to 350 degrees or whatever the specific biscuits instruct. Open the can of biscuits flatten each one and place in a circular shape on the bottom of a greased baking pan or dish. 
  3. Top with 2 cups of cheese spread evenly among the circle.
  4. Add taco seasoning to beef, let it cook for a little while, and then spread the ground beef & onions evenly among the layer of cheese.
  5. Top with another layer of cheese.
  6. Then use the other can of flattened biscuits to form and enclosed cover around the beef & cheese mixture. See picture.
  7. Bake in oven 20 to 25 minutes (or according to biscuit directions) making sure the dough is cooked through and the biscuit turns and nice golden brown color.
  8. Cut and serve as a pie or cut out each biscuit. Top with salsa & sour cream, if desired.

This looks awesome! And I love this cooking blog. I recently joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and have been getting tons of fresh veggies every week to cook with which has been great!

Your blog is really inspiring me to try some new dishes. Keep up the excellent work in the kitchen! G$$ is a lucky man:)
