- 1 pound ground beef
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 envelope taco seasoning
- 2 tubes (16.3 ounces each) large refrigerated flaky biscuits
- 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
- 1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions. Cool slightly.
Flatten half of the biscuits into 4-in. circles; place in greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans. Spoon 1/4 cup meat mixture onto each; sprinkle with 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Flatten the remaining biscuits; place on top and pinch edges to seal tightly. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Reviews for Taco Puffs
"We made this recipe with crescent roll dough (we prefer the taste). The taste was fantastic, but the amount of prep work for the final product was not justified. It took us almost an hour total to make the puffs. My fiance has been calling them glorified Hot Pockets."
"We make this all the time and the whole family loves it. Not very healthy, but that's what makes it taste so good!"
"Very good, easy to prepare, Really similar to "Runzas""
"Followed recipe except there are only 2 adults eating so just made 1 can of biscuits."
"I have been making this recipe for years. It is requested every time my daughter returns from college. We top them with all the good taco stuff...more cheese, lettuce, salsa, sour cream & black olives. ONE is a meal. Leftovers are awesome."
"This is a winner with my husband and boys!"
"Family favorite! We just use a package of the McCormick taco seasoning and it's fantastic :)"
"I love this recipe, however, I have tweaked it a bit to make it into a casserole. I line a pie plate or a larger dish if making it for more people, with the biscuits, add the taco meat, lots of cheese and then lay the remaining biscuits over the top and bake it. When it's done, just slice in individual servings like a lasagna. Everyone loves this recipe, and it's so easy to make. The casserole actually serves more people and takes less time to do. I've been making it this way for over 13 years now and it's always a crowd pleaser, even for the pickiest of eaters!!!"
"These are delicious and simple! Next time I'm thinking about adding some jalapenos for a little extra kick and maybe serving it with salsa and sour cream. Yum!!!"
"Great dish. We use cubed Mexican velvetta instead of shredded cheese... delicious!! Works well to freeze before baking also."
"This is a family favorite. My picky children even loved this one."
"My grandchildren absolutely LOVE these!!"
"This is a great idea to build on. First my family tried this recipe to the T and it was o.k. The next time, we made an Italian version and a sloppy joe version (see recipe for sensational sloppy joes) and it was much better!"
