Mexican Bubble Pizza

I got the recipe for Mexican Bubble Pizza out of a Pillsbury Cookbook. The original recipe is here. I'm not sure why it has pizza in the name, as it is a very taco like casserole. Maybe another time I'll make it with a pepperoni sauce to see how that turns out.

This is how I make it:

1# ground beef or turkey
1 package taco seasoning
1 sm can tomato paste or tomato sauce
1 can of refried beans.
1 package refrigerator biscuits
2 cups shredded cheddar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a skillet brown the ground beef. Drain any grease. Add taco seasoning, tomato sauce or paste, and enough water to make it a little liquidy. Bring to a boil and then let simmer for a few minutes. Stir in the can of beans and turn down to low.

Divide biscuit dough into 8 biscuits and then cut each into 8 parts (Kitchen scissors work very well.) Add pieces to the beef mixture and gently stir together. Gently place into an ungreased 9x13.

Bake 18-23 minutes or until biscuits are starting to turn brown. Sprinkle with cheese and bake another 10 minutes or so.

Cut into squares to serve, and top with whatever sounds good. (Lettuce, sour cream, olives, salsa, tomatoes, etc.)
