  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 can of refrigerated biscuits (8 count)
  • Shredded cheese (about half a bag)
  • Optional toppings: salsa, sour cream, diced tomatoes, lettuce, etc.


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

  3. Add the taco seasoning packet to the cooked ground beef according to the instructions on the packet. Stir well to combine, then remove from heat.

  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the turnovers are golden brown and cooked through.
  10. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving.
