Step By Step  

It's just Grands! Chicken Taco Melts

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

It's taco night over here and instead of the usual ground beef in taco shells, we're making Chicken Taco Melts using Grands! biscuits!


Whenever I cook chicken for a meal, I always make extra and freeze it for a fast weeknight dinner. These Chicken Taco Melts are perfect for using up some shredded chicken.

People think that taco seasoning is just for beef, but it tastes great with chicken as well for a lighter option.

There are no rules here; you can use whatever taco fillings you love and wrap them in buttery biscuits with some cheese.

For example, these Chicken Taco Melts are spiced up with some Sriracha sauce, which is so not along the Mexican line but adds a unique twist of hotness and flavor. You could add some black beans, cream cheese, or olives...anything goes!

 

Add filing to a Grands! biscuit.

Biscuits are acting as our taco "shell" here. Just press each biscuit with your fingers into a 6" circle and fill the taco with your favorite fillings.


Make sure you seal the edges well so none of the goods seep out.

 

Bake until the outsides are golden brown.

When they've finished they will be nice and golden brown and ready to eat.

Look at the cheesy middle screaming, "EAT ME!"

These totally look like they took forever to make but they're so incredibly easy!
