Taco Melts with Chicken

Dear September,

How about you slow down a bit. M’kay? Sphanx.

Back to school, back to dance, back to gymnastics, back to soccer… back, back, baaack!!!

You and I discussed this back-to-school schedule not very long ago, and instead of it getting easier, it just keeps getting busier! (That rhymed…ahem.)

After running around from one practice to the next, and then another, by the time we get home, everyone is tired and hungry. I don’t know about your family, but around here, hungry means, give me food NOW! That’s what they (husband and 4-year old) chant as soon as we enter the house. As barbaric as that sounds, it is the truth, my dears. Nobody wants to wait for me to cook for an hour and then finally sit down to eat.

Chicken Taco Melts with Pillsbury Biscuits

Luckily, when it comes to serving dinner, I am always prepared. Also, lucky for me, I always have a stash (no, seriously, it’s.a.STASH) of Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits in our deep freezer. They are my go-to-pal for things like Caprese Pizza Rolls and Jelly Donut Holes. Apart from the convenience, we are huge fans of the Pillsbury Biscuits because they are very soft and SO flavorful, they taste just as good as any homemade biscuit that I have ever tried.

Working off Pillsbury’s recipe for Easy Taco Melts, I recently made these Chicken Taco Melts for dinner one night and I had to pop open one more Grands! tube because my husband could not get enough of them. We had some chicken dinner the night before and this was the perfect meal to make with the leftovers. As expected, this turned out to be a fantastic dish – rich, spicy, delicious, and filling. What more do you need!

I’ve been inspired by all of the Pillsbury Recipes and we are definitely looking forward to trying the Grands! Grilled Cheese Sandwiches next. And those Grands! Unsloppy Joes!! Don’t they sound amazing? I Love ’em!

Which recipe do you want to try?!

I think you should start with these Chicken Taco Melts. They really were extremely delicious and they only took about 30 minutes to make, from start to finish.

ENJOY!

    1. Hi! I normally will take them out the night before and place them in the fridge. Then, the next day, I just leave them on the counter for a few minutes before using. I should tell you that one time one of those cans decided to explode in the freezer. Since then, I’ve been putting the cans in plastic ziploc bags before placing them in the freezer. 🙂
