Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Cook the ground beef. Pour off excess oil. Saute cut onions until tender, in the same pan as you cooked the beef.
Add taco seasoning, beans and 1/2 cup of water. Cook ingredients until beans tender. Add cooked beef to the mix and let simmer on low until all the excess liquid is gone.
Open both cans of biscuits. Cut each biscuit in half and roll out both sides until you have formed a circle. Add ground beef mixture to one rolled biscuit. On top of the mixture, add a small amount of shredded cheese. Fold over the biscuit and seal the edges with a fork. The biscuit should look like a quarter moon.
Fill the remaining biscuits with the beef mixture. You should have 32 small pouches. Melt some butter or margarine and brush over the biscuits.
Cook until biscuits are golden or at for 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve with taco sauce.
