1/2 Photos of Taco Puffs
Originally from Taste of Home's "Five Ingredient Cookbook." Tacos in a biscuit. Easy and yummy. I've thrown some extra spice into the meat here. I am guesstimating on all amounts, as really I just use dashes of each until I feel comfortable that all meat has been seasoned through. "Jump Up and Kiss Me" is a hot sauce that is one of my dad's fave's and I've now always got a bottle on hand, too. I think you have to special order it. Though I do highly recommend it, if you can't find it, just sub in hot sauce of your choice. These work best if you use original style biscuits, not buttermilk, and definitely not the "Flaky Layers" kinds. You can also just buy and use "Mexican Blend" cheese pre-shredded at the store.
