Easy Taco Meat Pies. Hamburger was on sale the other day so I boiled up 5 pounds. Put four 1-pound bags of it in the freezer for later and left 1 pound (about 2.5 cups) in the frig for dinner another night. I needed an easy dinner so I browsed through a few cookbooks and perused the other contents of the fridge. Here’s what I created.
Put the boiled hamburger in a sauce pan with some taco meat seasoning and water. (There are plenty of “make your own” mixes or use a packet or use 1/4 cup from the big mixes from the warehouse.) Simmer this together until the meat is not too saucy. Take a can of refrigerator biscuits (or homademade biscuit dough) and roll each biscuit into a 1/4″ thick circle. Put a few tablespoons of the taco meat onto the rolled out biscuits and top with some shredded Cheddar cheese. Fold each biscuit in half over the meat mixture to form a half circle and pinch the ends together with a fork. Bake at 400 for 8 minutes or so.
Aside from dinner, the girls each took one for lunch the next day.
And of course, this is a great thing to make with leftover taco meat, too.
