Sloppy Joe Taco Cups

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

I haven't made these as yet, it looks so good, I can't wait to try it! Since I have not made this as yet, I am not sure how many biscuits are in the refrigerated buttermilk biscuits dough package, or also the correct size of the package, so I really cannot say what the correct yield would be as yet, I am only estimating 8 biscuits for this and 8 ounce for the weight, correct me if I am wrong! You might want to try my Kittencal's Taco Seasoning Mix for this :)

This was a fun and easy recipe...not to mention a nice break from traditional tacos. I changed a few things...I used butter flavored biscuits instead of buttermilk. Also, after I filled these with the meat mixture I sprinkled cheese on top and popped them back in the over for 5 minutes. We topped these with sour cream, pico and Pace taco sauce. Big, big hit in my house. These will most definitely be served again!
