Taco Pizzza Bake

I found this recipe from Kraft foods but I tweeked it a little bit because I don't like using store bought premade things very often. I prefer to make things from scratch. This recipe was good. Not a jaw dropper but a good easy meal that doesn't take long to make and comes together fast for those nights when you are in a hurry. All the toppings on top make this dish!!

Taco Pizza Bake

1 lb ground beef
1(15 oz) can black beans
1 onion chopped
1 T. minced garlic
1 pkg taco seasoning
3/4 cup water
1(10 3/4 oz)can tomato soup
1 can Buttermilk biscuits but I used homemade biscuits*(recipe follows)Homemade tast way better than those canned ones but use whatever you prefer
2 cups cheddar cheese,shredded
Lettuce, tomatoes, olives, salsa, avocadoes, sour cream, pico de gallo or anything you like on your tacos

Brown the beef with the onion and garlic until no longer pink. Drain the grease. Add the black beans, taco seasoning, water, and soup;heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Prepare you biscuit dough or use the store bought kind, Cut dough into chunks. Gently stir the biscuit pieces into beef mixture. Spoon mixture into ungreased 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 375 for 18-22 minutes until sauce is bubbly and biscuite golden brown. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 8-10 minutes longer until cheese is bubbly. Cut pizza into squares and serve each piece with your choice of toppings!!!

Biscuits
2 cups self-rising flour
2 tsp sugar
1/2 cup butter or shortening
2/3 cup buttermilk

Mix flour and sugar. Cut in the butter or shortening until resembles coarse crumbs. Add the butter milkand stir until combined. Roll out on floured surface and cut into biscuits or into pieces for the above recipe. If just making biscuits. place them on a ungreased baking sheet and bake at 450 for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
