How To Make grand taco pie

  • 1
    Biscuit Dough Prep: Open the Pillsbury Grands Biscuits. In an approximate 10x10 ungreased baking dish, take four biscuit dough rounds and on the bottom of the baking dish place one round of dough in each corner. Gently press and blend the biscuit dough rounds together to completely cover the bottom of the baking dish. Then take the remaining four biscuit dough rounds, break each in half and up the sides of the baking dish, place biscuit halves in each corner and one in between the corners and continue to press and blend the biscuit dough along the sides and into the bottom until you have completely lined the bottom and sides of the baking dish with the biscuit dough. Set aside.

    On the stove, saute the onion in a splash of olive oil until transparent, add ground beef or turkey until browned. Drain, if necessary and return to heat.
  • 3
    Add taco seasoning mix, 1/2 cup water and simmer for 10 -15 minutes. (Note: feel free to add other ingredients that you may like i.e. corn, cooked baked potato, peppers, etc.. it's up to you how you might want to personalize it to your families liking).

    Transfer meat mixture to the dough lined baking dish and distribute evenly.

    Cut fresh tomatoes in slices, as you would for sandwiches and place evenly on top of the meat mixture covering completely.
  • 6
    Cut the Mozzarella ball into slices and place evenly on top of the tomatoes, covering completely.

    Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown and the cheese is completely melted over the top. Remove from oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting.
