  • Author: Rose


These Easy Taco Pockets are kid-friendly and perfect for a weekend lunch or busy weeknight supper!



  • 1 (1 oz) package taco seasoning mix
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups salsa, divided
  • 1 lb lean ground beef, cooked, drained
  • 1 cup cooked, partially mashed pinto beans*
  • 1 can Pillsbury® Grands!® biscuits
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • Lettuce & Tomato (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.  In a skillet, mix together the ground beef, taco seasoning mix, 1/2 cup salsa, and water.  Cook over medium heat until thickened.
  2. Next you’ll pop open your can of Grands biscuits, and on a flat surface, press each biscuit into a 6″ round (kids love doing this part!!).    Spoon the meat mixture (probably about 1/3 cup per biscuit) onto the center of each biscuit, then top with 1 tablespoon of cheese.  Fold the dough over the filling (in half) and press the edges together to seal.
  3. Then place them on a greased cookie sheet and  bake for about 10-12 minutes or until golden brown (the original recipe said 9-14, but ours were done in about 10 minutes).    Serve with salsa, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, and/or tomato!
