Freeze Extra Taco Meat

I always cook extra when making taco flavored meat and freeze the extra in meal sized portions.

One of my favorite ways of fixing it is to make what my nieces and nephews call "taco balls" and they eat them without complaint.

Simply take some canned biscuits (or home made if you have the time), and roll or flatten them to fit your muffin tin (jumbo biscuits for the larger tins).

Sprinkle some shredded cheddar and/or jack cheese over the dough and fit into the muffin tin with extra dough hanging over. Fill with taco meat and a little salsa if you like it and pull the sides up and pinch closed but leave a small space for steam to escape.

Cook according to the biscuit directions and when browned, tip out of the muffin tins and serve. Most kids seem to like these with catsup for dipping, but adults might prefer some guacamole and sour cream for dipping them in.

These are great for quick lunches or dinners and even go to picnics quite well if you keep them warm, great "finger" food.

The variations are endless: once you make them the first time you start thinking of other things you can make the same way, leftover chicken, broken up hamburger patties, turkey, stuff the family won't usually eat (because it's leftovers) goes fast made in this way!
