Uglies OR Taco Biscuits

I had some leftover ground beef that I needed to use. I came across this awesome recipe for Uglies. I think the name could be more creative, but because the dish comes out looking ugly, I guess it is fitting. These are GREAT!! They pair nicely with Chili con Carne or could double as appetizers/finger foods for that awesome Super Bowl party everybody is throwing or a simple snack.

Here is what you will need to make these delicious Uglies

Recipe Inspired by

  • 1/2 to 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 jar taco sauce
  • 1 package refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Lightly grease 10 muffin cups
  • In a skillet, cook ground beef until no longer pink; season with garlic and onion powder
  • Drain grease
  • Stir in the taco sauce and simmer for 10 minutes
  • Roll out each biscuit on a floured surface so that each biscuit is 6 inches across
  • Put the biscuit in the muffin tin and fol up sides to create a cup shape
  • fill each biscuit almost to the top with the meat mixture; top with plenty of cheese
  • Baked for about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and the tops are golden brown
These were so cool! It was a hybrid between a biscuit and taco... a Taco Biscuit. Whatever you want to call these ugly little creations, it has no bearing on the great flavor these little biscuits of heaven have.
I hope you all give them a shot!
Until next time, happy cooking!
