Taco Meat and Biscuits in Pan

HOW TO MAKE AN EASY TACO BISCUIT CASSEROLE

This recipe could not be simpler. You just need your regular taco meat, biscuits and cheese…and that can of undiluted tomato soup that adds a hard to define creamy, delicious flavor.

To start, brown your meat in a large skillet. Then pour off the fat. The one I use (in the photo) is a little pricey. It has ceramic coating over the cast iron to keep food from sticking, has pour spouts on both sides and is dark blue to match my kitchen. You know…the important things.

Add the seasoning mix, water and soup. Stir to combine and let it come to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes to allow the liquid to reduce. The meat should be slightly wet when you add the biscuits.

Open the can of biscuits and separate them. Cut the 8 biscuits into 8 pieces each. Throw the pieces into the pan with the meat mixture and fold them in until just coated. They will start to melt but that is okay.

Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and smooth into an even layer. Sprinkle the cheese all over the top and pop it into the preheated oven for 20 – 25 minutes.

Keep an eye on the oven. Don’t worry, for the first 15 minutes or so it won’t look like anything is happening, then the biscuits will start to rise. Dinner is done when the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the biscuit pieces spring back when you push on them.

HOW TO MAKE EASY TACO BISCUIT CASSEROLE IN ONE PAN

Start by browning your meat in a large, oven safe skillet. Then follow all of the directions up to the point of transferring the mixture to a baking pan. Just pop the skillet into the oven and bake as directed.

ADD-IN’S FOR THIS CASSEROLE:

Add more flavor and variety to your casserole by using add-ins. Why not try these?

  • Canned tomatoes with diced green chilis
  • Sliced black olives
  • Diced green and red bell peppers
  • Canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • Chopped onions and roasted red peppers

Tip: Pre-shredded cheese is a time saver, and is honestly what I usually use. Just know that the cheese will not melt as smoothly as cheese that you shred from a block. Pre-shredded cheese has stabilizers added to keep it from sticking together in the bag and that will effect how it melts also.
