Author Blair Lonergan


  • 1 can (16.3 ounces) refrigerated biscuits (such as Pillsbury Grands! Southern Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits, 8 count)
  • 1 lb. ground beef (or sub with ground turkey or ground chicken)
  • 1 packet taco seasoning mix
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional garnish: sliced green onions, sliced olives, sliced avocado, or sour cream


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Spray 8 cups of a standard-size muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Cook ground meat in a large skillet until no longer pink. Drain; return meat to skillet, and season with taco seasoning according to package instructions.
  • Flatten biscuits with your fingers (or roll out) so that they become larger and thinner (about 4.5 inches in diameter). Press into bottom and up sides of prepared muffin cups.
  • Spoon a few tablespoons of taco meat into the bottom of each biscuit cup, packing it down and adding more if it will fit.
  • Top meat mixture with a tablespoon or two of salsa and about 1-2 tablespoons of shredded cheese.
  • Gently press down the cheese so that it is centered over the filling and is not spilling over the edges of the pan.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until cheese is melted and edges of biscuits are golden brown.
  • Remove muffin pan to a wire rack and gently run a knife around the edge of each biscuit to loosen.
  • Use a spoon to carefully remove biscuit cups from pan. Serve hot and garnish with optional toppings.
