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!

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.

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!!!
