DIRECTIONS

  • Taco Pie:.
  • In a 9 inch skillet or dutch oven (I like cast iron), cook the ground beef until gray and drain.
  • Add the chopped onion and cook until soft.
  • Drain the corn and Ro-Tel tomatoes, reserving the drained liquid.
  • Add the taco seasoning package and cook according to the package directions, using the reserved liquid.
  • Add the tomatoes, corn and water and simmer gently while making the biscuits.
  • Biscuits:.
  • To the flour, add the baking soda if using buttermilk.
  • Mix and make a well in the flour.
  • Add oil and milk, stirring as you add it until the dough is on the verge of being too wet.
  • Place the dough on a well-floured surface.
  • With floured hands, shape the dough, not kneading more than 2 or 3 times, adding flour needed to keep the dough from sticking.
  • Pat out to 3/8 inch thickness and cut into 8 biscuits 2 1/2 inches in diameter.
  • Baking:.
  • Place the biscuits on the taco pie and place in a 450 F oven.
  • Cook for 15 minutes or until brown, sprinkling cheese between the biscuits for the last 5 minutes.
