EASY TACO CUPS
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
(15-oz.) can spicy chili beans, undrained
package (1.25 oz) Old El Paso® 40% less-sodium taco seasoning mix
can (16.3 oz) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
cup shredded lettuce, if desired
cup chopped tomato, if desired
cup sour cream, if desired
cup Salsa, if desired
1Heat oven to 375°F. Brown ground beef in large skillet over medium-high heat until thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain.
2Add chili beans, taco seasoning mix and water; mix well. Reduce heat to medium; simmer 10 minutes or until ground beef mixture is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.
3Meanwhile, spray outside bottom and sides of 8 (6-oz.) custard cups lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Roll or pat each biscuit to form 4 1/2-inch round. Place rounds over outside of sprayed cups; press to fit over bottom and part way down sides of cups. Place cups, upside down, in ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
4Bake at 375°F. for 14 to 16 minutes or until deep golden brown. Remove pan from oven. Carefully remove biscuit cups from custard cups. Place biscuit cups, right side up, in same baking pan. Spoon beef mixture evenly into each cup.
5Top with cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream and salsa.
