Monkey bread is a great appetizer, snack, or even breakfast, but Taco Monkey Bread goes where no other tear-and-share bread has gone before: dinner. Taco Monkey Bread takes the finger-friendly favorite and makes it a savory supper: each buttery ball of biscuits is stuffed with spicy, zesty taco meat and sharp, melty cheddar cheese, and then layered with even more cheese because no one can say no to more cheese. Taco Monkey Bread is easy to put together and even easier to eat. The hard part may be getting enough!
