1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 can (4.5 oz) chopped green chiles, drained
3 to 4 drops red pepper sauce
1 can (12 oz) Jr. Golden Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits
1 cup refried beans
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
1/2 head iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 large tomato, chopped (1 cup)
1 small onion, sliced or chopped
1. In 10-inch skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix, tomato sauce, chiles and red pepper sauce. Cook, stirring occasionally, until hot and bubbly. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 15 minutes or until thickened.
2 Heat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease 12-inch pizza pan with shortening. Separate dough into 10 biscuits; place in pan. Press over bottom and up side to form crust. Spread refried beans evenly over dough. Top evenly with beef mixture.
3 Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Immediately sprinkle with cheese. Garnish with lettuce, tomato and onion.
