This Cheesy Taco Bombs Skillet is a deliciously cheesy party appetizer or game day snack that everyone will love!
Remember when I shared these Cheesy Taco Sticks? Well, I had a some extra taco meat and a can of Pillsbury biscuits in my fridge and wanted to make another fun snack.
That’s when these little Taco Bombs were born!
All you need to do is flatten out a biscuit, pile on some taco meat and a little cheese.
I had some cheddar cheese sticks in my fridge so I used those, but shredded cheddar would work just as good!
You could even add a little sliced jalapeño in each one for some extra taco flair! Since I was serving these to my kids I went ahead and kept them simple.
Roll up the biscuit so it’s enclosing the meat and cheese, then pinch the seams closed.
Place them seam side down in a lightly buttered skillet and then brush the tops with some garlic and cilantro infused melted butter.
Two small tubes of biscuits was perfect for this 10″ skillet, leaving a small spot in the middle open for your favorite taco dip.
I paired these with salsa, sour cream and a those pickled jalapeños for me!
The insides are filled with gooey cheese and tender taco meat, while the outside is crisp, buttery and delicious!
I couldn’t keep my hands off of these ones!
Make these cheesy bombs for your next gathering!
