The Recipe: Flatbread Tacos with Ranch Sour Cream *Amanda*

1 Cup                  Sour cream

2 ts                     Ranch salad dressing mix

1 ts                      Lemon juice

1 1/2 Lb             Ground beef

15 oz can           Pinto beans (rinsed and drained)

14 1/2 oz can    Diced tomatoes (not drained)

1 envelope         Taco seasoning

1 Tbs                   Hot pepper sauce

1 Tube               Large refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

Optional: olives, shredded lettuce, and cheddar cheese

In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, dressing mix, and lemon juice; chill until serving.

In a large skillet, cook ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the beans, tomatoes, taco seasoning, and pepper sauce; heat through.

Meanwhile, roll out each biscuit into a 6-in circle. In a small nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook each buscuit for 30-60 seconds on each side or until golden brown; keep warm.

To serve, spread each flatbread with 2 Tbs ranch sour cream; top each with 2/3 cup meat mixture. Add toppings as desired.

Makes 8 servings.

    I made a few modifications. I’m not big on beans, and my husband’s favorite kind is my least favorite, so I opted to omit beans altogether, I diced tomatoes rather than getting canned ones because I had tomatoes at home, and I didn’t add ranch or lemon juice to the sour cream. It turned out great. I was a little worried about the biscuits at first, because some of them burned, and some of them didn’t look like they were really all that done, but they turned out great. The kids thought I was making pancakes, so I just poured syrup on top instead of making a taco, and they liked that a lot better. All in all, a great meal, with kid approved options where I didn’t have to cook a separate meal for them! Yay! We will definitely make this again!

    We really enjoyed this meal. We left out the beans as well, because neither of us particularily care for them, and we loved the ranch sour cream. I LOVED the biscuit as the bread. I was worried about it at first, because it sounded a little odd, but it turned out great. We give this meal a 4 out of 5.
