I love the taste of cornmeal biscuits so I thought I would try making something a little different with the refrigerated biscuits I had.My family loves buritos and tacos so I kinda added all the ingredients together and made these for dinner yesterday...they were delicious and will be made again as these were said to be "keepers"... hope you try this recipe ...you can turn the heat up as much as your family likes...and instead of black beans you can use pinto or refried style...
