Cheesy Taco Buns

  • 1-2 packages Grand biscuits
  • 1 pound ground hamburger
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 8 oz. package cream cheese
  • 4 Tbsp. melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a skillet, brown ground hamburger; drain any excess fat from meat. Add taco seasoning and prepare as stated on the packet.

In a medium bowl, add cream cheese and salsa, blend with mixer until smooth; set aside. Separate each biscuit and roll so they are flat and somewhat thin. Spread 1 tablespoon of cream cheese mixture on to the biscuit and a good spoonful of taco meat on top of cream cheese; top with shredded cheese.

Pull dough and pinch to make a pocket and place seal side down on a greased cookie sheet; repeat until all biscuits are used. Brush each biscuit with butter. Bake for 13-16 minutes until the tops are golden brown.
