Taco pockets

We are always looking for simple, delicious, fast dinners. This is a recipe our neighbor shared who has super picky eaters at her house.

Taco meat

Once your taco meat is prepared your ready to stuff your pockets. Start by spreading out your uncooked biscuits. Then fill with your prepared taco meat and a little bit of cheese. You could also add tomatoes or green onions. Next fold your biscuit over the filling to create a little pocket. Pop them in the oven and cook according to the biscuit package cooking instructions. Once they are cooked top with your favorite taco toppings sour cream, salsa, green onions, olives, avocado, ect. Time to enjoy!
