Recipe type: Starter
Cuisine: American
Serves: 5
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • ​salt & pepper
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • 1 can of fat free refried beans
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of drained corn
  • 1 package of Kraft® Finely Shredded Cheese
  • 2 cans of Pillsbury Corn Biscuits
  • 1 egg beaten
Instructions
  1. First, you will need to cut your onion into strips. I cut my onion in half and then cut into strips. In a large skillet add the olive oil and place over a medium high heat. Once the oil is hot add your onions and sauteé for 3-4 minutes until translucent.
  2. Add your ground beef, season lightly with salt and pepper. Break-up the ground beef into small pieces and brown. Once the meat has browned, remove excess grease with a spoon and discard. Stir in the taco seasoning over medium heat.
  3. Add the refried beans, black beans and corn. Let this mixture come to temperature and the remove from heat.
  4. Lightly flour a clean dry surface and roll out your first corn biscuit. Place about a ¼ to a ⅓ of a cup of the taco meat mixture in on the rolled out biscuit and top with a generous helping of Kraft® Shredded Cheese.
  5. Then with a pastry brush, brush on a bit of egg wash along the edge of the biscuit dough. Fold over and seal with a fork.
  6. Place on a baking sheet and brush the top of the hand pies with the egg wash. Repeat with remaining biscuits.
  7. Bake in a 350˚ oven for 14-15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes.
