Taco Meatball Cups

Cooking spray
1 (8-ct) package refrigerated flaky biscuits
1/2 cup refried beans
1/2 cup creamy jalapeno cheese spread
24 frozen bite-size beef (or pork) meatballs (12-14 oz)
1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
1/2 cup thick-and-chunky salsa
1/2 cup guacamole (optional)

1.    Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat mini muffin pans (24 total cups) with spray. Separate each biscuit into 3 layers, then place each piece into muffin cups; top each with 1 teaspoon beans, 1 teaspoon cheese spread , and 1 meatball (pressing meatball into dough).
2.    Bake 15-18 minutes or until biscuits are brown and meatballs are 165°F. Top evenly with cheese; let stand 10 minutes to cool. Top evenly with salsa and guacamole, if desired. Serve.


Nonstick aluminum foil
1 (8-ct) package refrigerated flaky biscuits
12 oz chilled Deli chicken tenders (about 4)
4 slices sweet ham
4 slices cheddar (or Swiss) cheese
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 cup honey mustard dressing

1.    Preheat oven to 375°F. Line baking sheet with foil. Remove biscuits from package and let stand 5 minutes. Cut each chicken tender into 6-8 slices . Cut ham and cheese slices in half.
2.    Open biscuits in half carefully; do not completely separate sides. Flatten out each side, pressing to stretch dough. Top one side of each biscuit with 3-4 slices chicken, 1/2 slice ham, and 1/2 slice cheese (folding ham and cheese in half, if necessary) , leaving 1/4-inch border.
3.    Pull remaining side of biscuit over filling, crimping or pinching edges together to seal. Place biscuits on baking sheet 2 inches apart; bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown and hot.
4.    Melt butter; brush over warm biscuits. Serve with dressing for dipping.
