Taco Biscuit Bowls

4 Jun

Recently, Grands biscuits were on sale for $0.99 each, so I picked up a couple of cans.   I know, I know, I’ve been really good about making my own biscuits, but some nights I do still like to have the convenience items.  I’ve had biscuit bowls a couple of times eating out, but haven’t tried making them yet.  There are a few ways to go about it, like baking the biscuits bowl first, then adding your fillings.  However, I decided to bake the biscuit bowl with the filling in it, and tonight, based on what I had, I decided on making a taco filling and serve it with a side of Spanish Rice.  I think the taco was good, but I would prefer finding maybe a corn meal crust to use with this instead.  Also, I’m already thinking of the next filling for the biscuit bowls, I think it will be more of a breakfast bowl, with sausage crumbles, scrambled eggs, onion, cheese, maybe some kind of veggies.  I’m getting hungry again just thinking about it!  I’ll update when I do make them that way.  I baked these in my 2 cup glass Pyrex bakeware.  These haven’t been used to bake before, usually I just use them for storage or when I make pudding.

Taco Biscuit Bowl

What you need:

1 can Grands biscuits
1 pound ground beef
2/3 cup water
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup salsa
1 cup cheese

How to make it:

Preheat the oven to 400 F.

In a large skillet, brown  the ground beef.  Stir in water and chili powder, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, and salt.  Stir well.  Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, spray 4 2-cup glass baking dishes with cooking spray.  Take 2 biscuits and press into the bottom and sides of one of the dishes.  Repeat for the other 3 baking dishes.  Next, fill with the seasoned ground beef.  Then, top each with the salsa and the cheese.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and put each of the baking dishes on the baking sheet.  Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the biscuits become golden brown.  Remove and allow to cool a few minutes before serving.
