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.
- 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)
- Brown the ground beef in a medium sized skillet and add onions
- 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.
- Top with 2 cups of cheese spread evenly among the circle.
- 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.
- Top with another layer of cheese.
- Then use the other can of flattened biscuits to form and enclosed cover around the beef & cheese mixture. See picture.
- 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.
- Cut and serve as a pie or cut out each biscuit. Top with salsa & sour cream, if desired.
