Easy Recipe - Taco Melts

This is a super easy and fast recipe that I use often. We love tacos at our house and usually have lots of leftover taco meat, so I like having recipes that use the leftover meat. This recipe is yummy and the kids love it.

Taco Melts
1 package (1 oz) taco seasoning mix
2/3 cup water
1 1/2 cups Thick and Chunky salsa
1 lb lean ground beef, cooked, drained
1can (16.3 oz) refrigerated biscuits (any variety)
1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese or Mexican cheese blend
1 cup sour cream, if desired
(You can replace the first 3 ingredients with leftover taco meat, however you prefer to make it)
1. Heat oven to 375°F.
2. In medium saucepan, cook taco seasoning mix, water, 1/2 cup of the salsa and cooked ground beef until thickened.
3. Press each biscuit into 6-inch round. Fill each with taco mixture and 2 tablespoons cheese. Fold dough over filling and press to seal. Place on greased cookie sheet.
4. Bake 9 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with remaining salsa, cheese and sour cream or other toppings of your choice.
