Easy Empanada Salad

I found this recipe on a blog of someone from my old ward. She posts recipes on her blog from time to time and this one looked particularly easy and interested me. So we gave it a try and it was quite good and very easy!


1 lb. ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
half of a small onion, chopped
1/4 c. frozen corn (I used a little more)
1 package Grands Biscuits
salad ingredients

Brown beef with onion then drain excess fat. Mix in taco seasoning according to package and add frozen corn. Simmer until slightly thickened. Flatten biscuits out until about 6 inches in diameter. Scoop a heaping spoonful of meat mixture into the center of the biscuit, then fold it over and press the edges to seal it (I wet my finger and ran it around edge before folding it over and then I pressed it shut with a fork around the edge). Place empanada on a greased cookie sheet. Once all of them are finished, bake the empanadas at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve over lettuce and whatever salad ingredients you want. We served ours with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, black beans, salsa, and sour cream (Brian had his with ranch). Yum!!

Ha ha ha...I had forgotten about Brian's funny comment on this post. :)

We had these salads for dinner last week, and they are really yummy! I liked the fact that they were different than your typical tacos or taco salads. Mine didn't turn out as pretty as yours, though. I had a hard time pinching the sides together without the sauce dripping out.
