There was left over taco seasoned beef and refried beans in the fridge. But no tortillas or taco shells in the pantry. And yet I remained stubbornly hungry for burritos.
There was a can of cheap store brand biscuits in the fridge left from when my mom made chicken and dumplings.
I’m probably not the first person to do this but, here’s what I did.
So, preheat the oven to 400 (or whatever it says on the can of biscuits you’re using).
While that’s happening, stir the beef and beans together so they’re mixed evenly.
Flatten the individual biscuits out into rounds about three inches across. There were ten in the can.
Put about a tablespoon of the beef and bean mix into the middle of the flattened biscuits, fold over and press the edges together.
Place the filled busciuts on a baking sheet, I covered the baking sheet with a piece of aluminum foil and sprayed the foil with a cooking spray to make clean up easier.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Let them cool for about 5 minutes after you take them out of the oven.
I’d post a picture, but I ate them. I ate them all. And they were delicious.
