I found a recipe in a magazine that called for making a Mexican-type casserole and then topping it with homemade biscuit dough batter. Sounds great but who has time for homemade dough on a week night? Not me! I made a casserole and then just topped it with store bought canned biscuits. Easy!!
1 pound ground beef, turkey or chicken
1 package taco seasoning
1 can Chili Beans
1 cup of frozen corn
1 can refrigerated canned biscuits (I used Pilsbury Grands)
2 cups cheddar cheese, divided
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In an oven-safe skillet (or a regular skillet and you can transfer the casserole into a baking dish at the end), brown ground beef in a little bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) over medium-high heat. Once brown, stir in taco seasoning, beans, corn and 1 1/2 cups of cheese.
At this point, if your skillet isn't oven-safe, transfer the casserole into a 8x8 baking dish. Top casserole with biscuits and then top each biscuit with a little more cheese. Bake uncovered 25-30 minutes or until casserole bubbly and biscuits brown.
Yummy, hearty, easy...everything you need for a quick week night supper.
