Heat oven to 375oF. Separate biscuits and press with hands into a 5- to 6-inch circle. Place 1 round in each of 8 regular-size muffin cups. Firmly press in bottom and up sides, forming ½ -inch rim.
Combine remaining ingredients; mix well. Spoon filling into each biscuit crust, pushing into crust and mounding on top. If desired, sprinkle top of each with 1 tablespoon shredded cheese.
Bake at 375oF for 25 to 30 minutes until biscuits are golden brown. Cool in pan 5 minutes before removing to serve.
