This recipe was entered in The Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook contest, a compilation of the world’s best food blogs which was published in Fall 2010.

Ingredients

1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1 (15 oz) can corn, drained
1 cup salsa, any variety you prefer

Preparation

1
Brown the ground beef in a frying pan adding the salt and pepper just before done.
2
Drain and allow to cool.
3
In a large bowl mix the corn, onions, cheese, and salsa, then add the cooled beef mixing carefully so not to break up all the cheese.
4
Roll the biscuits out flat to about 2 ½ times their original size.
5
Spoon about ¼ cup of the mixture onto the center of each circle being careful not the cover the edges.
6
Fold the dough over the filling and pinch the edges closed. Make sure the edges are sealed well or your filling will ooze out while it’s baking!
7
Place on lightly greased cookie sheet and bake @ 375 degrees until lightly browned, usually about 6 minutes but times may vary. Just watch them closely and when they are browned remove from oven.
