Recipe – Taco Pockets

Everyone loves an easy recipe!

And with Back to School season upon us, our Happy Homes need a quiver-full of quick meal ideas!

I have shared before that the Happy Hubby loves taco-y dishes.

His favorite is this Taco Pizza recipe.

So when I mixed it up and whipped together these Taco Pockets, he couldn’t have been more thrilled!

Ingredients:1 pkg (1 oz) taco seasoning mix

2/3 cup water

1 1/2 cups salsa

1 lb lean ground beef, cooked and drained

1 can (16.3) oz Pillsbury GRANDS! Refrigerated Biscuits

1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend

1 cup sour cream, if you want it! (Not pictured because we didn’t want it.) :-)


Step 1 – Cook taco seasoning mix, water, 1/2 cup of the salsa, and cooked ground beef until thickened.Step 2 – Press each biscuit into 6-inch round.Step 3 – Fill each with 1 T cheese and taco mixture.Step 4 – Fold dough over filling and press to seal.  Place on a greased cookie sheet.Step 5 – Bake at 375 degrees for 9-14 minutes or until golden brown.Step 6 – Serve with remaining salsa, cheese and sour cream.

Now you know what to make for dinner after school today! :-)

I hope your Happy Home enjoys these Taco Pockets as much as ours did!

Happy Taco Pocket-ing! :-)

  4. I stumbled across this gem of a recipe on your site. My family loved it!!!! Just a quick question how did you prepare your zucchini?

    • Hey Christina! I think I may have roasted them? Sometimes I will saute them with oil and s+p in a pan, but I think in this photo I had cut them, tossed in oil, and s+p and then roasted at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes? Yummy! And I am so happy you liked the taco pockets!
