Biscuits and Taco Pie
- Ready In:
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 lb ground chuck
- 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1 (10 ounce) can tomatoes and green chilies (mild or original Ro-Tel)
- 1 (15 1/4 ounce) whole kernel corn
- 1⁄4 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)
- 1 cup self-rising flour (soft wheat like Martha White or Lilly )
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (or other oil)
- 1⁄2 cup milk or 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1 pinch baking soda (if buttermilk is used)
- self-rising flour, for surface
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
My wife and I live just outside of Atlanta, GA. Two daughters live in town, one with my two grandsons. My son is living in California. I'm a retired environmental manager at a manufacturing facility. My Mom and Dad would have loved this site. Dad was a huge collector of recipes and was in the food industry. Mom was a terrific cook as well. Another influence was a roommate at the Universtiy of Arkansas that was an excellent cook. Today I enjoy barbecuing and grilling year round and cooking in general. My latest adventure is in bread baking. I'm loving it and going to school on it right here on the bread forum. I'm active in a terrific church and also love fly fishing and fly tying.
