How to Make Taco Biscuit Bites

Not only are these Taco Biscuit Bites delicious, but they are also super easy to make and ready to eat in about 15 minutes! Start with separating each biscuit into two rounds. Press the biscuits into a mini muffin pan. Next combine the sausage, taco seasoning, green chiles, and cheese. For the sausage mixture into balls and press into the biscuits. Pop the biscuit bites into the oven and bake.

One note on this recipe, you do NOT pre-cook the sausage. You bake the sausage raw inside the mini biscuit cups. I PROMISE that it gets fully cooked.

If you like to make recipes ahead of time, you can mix up the sausage mixture and finish assembling them when you are ready to bake. You could even make them all the way and freeze them and just reheat them for later. Either way is great.

  1. Could you use ground beef for these instead of sausage? Could you make 20 of them and use a regular cupcake size?

  2. Can these be frozen raw on a sheet pan and cooked at a later time?

    These sound , and perfect for our “happy hour on the deck” parties.

    Thanks!

    1. I’ve never frozen them unbaked, so I am not sure how the biscuit dough turns out. If you try it, let me know!
