  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef (95%)
  • 1 package (11.3 oz) refrigerated dinner roll dough or (16.3 oz) reduced fat buttermilk biscuit dough
  • 1 package (1.25 oz) reduced sodium taco seasoning mix
  • 3/4 cup sloppy Joe sauce

Heat oven to 350°F. Separate biscuits and press each into a 3-1/2 inch circle. Turn muffin pan
upside-down; press each biscuit over a muffin cup. Bake in 350°F oven 12 to 15 minutes or until browned. Remove baked cups to platter.

Meanwhile brown ground beef with taco seasoning mix in large nonstick skillet over medium heat
8 to 10 minutes or until beef is not pink, breaking beef up into crumbles.

Stir in sloppy Joe sauce; cook 2 to 4 minutes or until hot and bubbly, stirring occasionally. Stir in 1/3 cup cheese. Spoon beef mixture evenly into cups. Top with lettuce and tomato. Top with sour cream and olives, if desired.
