OK those who know me, know I don’t cook… or rather I can’t cook. I get too impatient and want to flash fry everything, which I know isn’t good. But baking? I can bake! I know that’s going to take time and I don’t have to stay and watch it!
But thats not really a problem because my husband is an amazing cook and also likes cooking! (Thank God!!) There is one time of year I suck it up and make dinner though. His birthday. So this year, being on a budget crunch I couldn’t really buy anything, so I had to go with what I had.
We had sour cream about to expire and a packet of taco seasoning that kept falling out of the cupboard no matter where we put it. Tada! I thought I’d make taco ring! Except I didn’t have crescent rolls, but I did have biscuits! I’ll make this work.
While my 1lb of beef was browning, I opened up all the biscuits and flattened them, leaving a lip on the bottom ones. Trust me that’s an important step.
I then added the taco seasoning (per the instructions) and mixed it. Then I spooned 1 heaping (or 2 regular) spoonfuls on the bottom biscuits. Its OK to have some left over. I used the extras to garnish on top after they bake. Then attempt to seal them or leave them open (your call), water may help seal the edges. I baked them on the heat recommended on the package of biscuits for about 12-15 minutes, or until they get that nice golden color.
Once they come out gather any extras you want; sour cream, salsa, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, whatever you prefer. This is where me and hubby had differing ways of eating. I spooned some extra meat on top as well as all my garnishments. He, on the other hand, opened his up, added his extras and then put the top back on like a sandwhich. I guess it all depends on if you want to be fancy or not!
We only ate 2 each and were full, so one package of biscuits could feed a small family. They also made great leftovers for a few days lunches! If you try this out let me know what you think! And how you prefer to eat yours 😉
