These are a lot of fun to make and have endless possibilities. I used ground beef for the filling, but I'm thinking shredded chicken, shredded pork, heck even tuna fish or salmon would pass! I used pillsbury grands biscuits, but the generic brand would taste the same I'm sure. You could layer on so many veggies in gorditas. They are perfect for the picky eater too, since you can choose your own toppings. My favorite part of these gorditas is the melted cheese - yum!
Husband Rating: 3 1/2 stars
1 can refrigerated biscuits (yay Pillsbury! My can had 8)
4 TB cornmeal
1 cup cheese, shredded
1 cup beef (shredded or ground and seasoned)
1 cup shredded lettuce
Optional toppings: sour cream, salsa, hot sauce, onions, tomatoes, guacamole, black beans, rice, olives, jalepenos
Preheat oven to 375. Flatten each biscuit until about 5 inch round. Coat both sides of flattened biscuit with cornmeal. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Take out, sprinkle the tops with cheese, bake for 2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Top each biscuit with meat, veggies and sour cream. Fold in half to serve.
