Easy Appetizer made with Refrigerated Biscuits

Next week is the Super Bowl. I am super excited about the game. Well, I’m excited about the commercials and the food. I am still finalizing our menu, but I know these YUMMY Taco Ranch Biscuit Bites will on the table. OMG! SO good! Taco meat, ranch dressing, and cheese baked in mini biscuit cups. Get in my belly! They make a great appetizer but they are equally delicious for lunch or dinner. Serve the stuffed biscuits with some Mexican rice and beans and you are ready for a fiesta!

How to Make Taco Ranch Biscuit Bites

These Taco Ranch Biscuit Bites are very easy to make. Start with splitting the biscuits. You are going to split each biscuit into two rounds. Place each biscuit round into a mini muffin pan. Next, make the taco meat. Let the taco meat cool and then add some ranch dressing and cheese. Spoon the taco meat mixture into the biscuit cups and bake.

This recipe is made for the smaller can of biscuits – NOT the bigger Grands biscuits. I used two cans of Pillsbury Flaky Layers Biscuits Buttermilk. It is a 12-oz can of biscuits with 10 biscuits in each can. You can also find 6-oz cans with 5 biscuits per can. You want to make sure you have a total of 20 biscuits. You are going to separate each biscuit into two rounds making a total of 40 biscuits.

You can make the taco meat ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to bake the Taco Ranch Biscuit Bites. This recipe uses a can of diced tomatoes and green chiles. If you are worried about the heat, make sure to buy a can of mild Rotel tomatoes. You can also omit the Rotel tomatoes and the Taco Ranch Biscuit Bites will taste fine.

  1. I finally got around to making these; sorry I waited a couple months. Wow!!! They’re fantastic! I couldn’t find the smaller biscuits so just used regular muffin tin. They were a great accompaniment to homemade tomato soup. Make these addictive biscuits. You won’t regret it.
