Posted: Updated:

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 box (9 oz) Green Giant® frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed to drain
  • 1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes with green chiles, undrained
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 lb pan sausage (browned and drained)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)
  • 40 to 45 nacho cheese-flavored tortilla chips
  • 2 cans (12 oz each) Pillsbury® Grands!® Jr. Golden Layers® refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (20 biscuits)
  • 1 cup finely shredded Mexican cheese blend (4 oz)

DIRECTIONS

Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 30 mini muffin cups with Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray. In large bowl, mix spinach, tomatoes, cream cheese, sour cream, sausage and taco seasoning mix; set aside.

Place about 20 of the tortilla chips in gallon-size resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Using rolling pin, finely crush to measure 1/2 cup. Stir crushed chips into mixture.

Separate 1 can of dough into 10 biscuits; separate each biscuit into 3 layers. Place 1 layer in each of 30 muffin cups; using floured fingers, press dough on bottom and up side of each cup.

Fill each cup with about 1 tablespoon spinach mixture. Refrigerate remaining spinach mixture. Sprinkle filling in each cup with about 1 teaspoon cheese. Bake 9 to 14 minutes or until edges of biscuits are golden brown. Cool in pan 5 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool 5 minutes longer. Repeat with remaining biscuits, filling and cheese, cooling pans between batches.

To serve, break each of the remaining 20 to 25 tortilla chips into 3 triangular pieces. Insert 1 triangle into each cup. Serve warm.
