Easy Taco Pockets

Halloween finger foods are so fun to make for those nighttime spooky movie marathons. Forget vamps, I'm all about the zombies.

In fact, we have plans to be a part of the 2nd Annual Survive Norfolk Zombie Tag this year. Basically it's a huge game of tag....zombie style. AND it's RIGHT in my 'hood. Literally all around my house!!! Thousands of participants will flood the area . I can already hear the screams now. Each participant has 2 hours to check in at 4 checkpoints along the way. You must outrun the zombies. How you survive is up to you. If you're tagged, you turn into a zombie. Exciting stuff!

So for a quick Zombie night supper how about some Easy Taco Pockets? Only 4 ingredients.

1 lb lean ground beef, cooked, drained (or turkey)
1 1/2 cups salsa
1 can large refrigerated biscuits
1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend

In 10-inch nonstick skillet, mix cooked beef and 1/2 cup of the salsa. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until hot.
Press each biscuit into 6-inch round. Spoon 1/3 cup meat mixture and 1 tablespoon cheese onto center of each round. Fold dough in half over filling; press to seal. Place on greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375° for 9 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with remaining salsa.
