Touchdown Taco Pockets

It's Superbowl Time! You still have time to enter The Recipe Girl's or Peanut Butter and Julie's Superbowl Recipe Smackdown! Pick your favorite and give a shot! Both sites are great, by the way, if you need some fun cooking ideas.
When feeding a crowd, I look for three things: Cheap, Easy, and Delicious. I created these fun pockets that are a snap to whip up for any football game. Enjoy!

Touchdown Taco Pockets
makes 10
Ingredients:
4 cans refrigerator biscuits (any kind)
1 lb. ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
water
shredded cheese
optional garnishes: lettuce, sour cream, salsa, shredded cheese

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown ground beef in a medium skillet. Add taco seasoning and water as directed on package. Cook as directed. Remove from heat.

On a cutting board, place 2 biscuits together and roll out into an oval with a rolling pin. Repeat with another 2 biscuits. Place a spoonful of taco meat and a spoonful of shredded cheese on one of the rolled out biscuits and place the other oval on top. Using a fork, press around edges to seal. Take a sharp knife and cut out a football shape. Make "laces" on top of the football with the scraps (see video tutorial).
