I kind of try not to use too many processed foods but I do enjoy bread, wraps and things like that. I really try not to buy tubes of bread or biscuits, but sometimes it just happens! This casserole was easy to make and is super filling thanks to those tubes of biscuits. I love anything with Mexican flavors such as this. It make a 13×9 pan and we easily got 6+ servings out of the recipe.
I topped mine with fresh onions, pickled jalapenos, cilantro and salsa.
Bubble up enchilada casserole, based on recipe from Buns In my Oven, serves 6-8
1 tube Pillsbury Grands! biscuit dough
10 ounces enchilada sauce
1 pound lean ground beef
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 ounce can jalapenos
4 ounce can diced green chiles
1 packet taco seasoning (plus water called for on packet)
Additional spices of choice – I added lime salt, black pepper, chili powder, cumin, oregano and red pepper (we really like spice)
1 – 16 oz. can refried beans
2 cups grated cheese – Mexi flavor or similar
cilantro, for garnish
Salsa, green onion, sour cream or guacamole, for serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Open the biscuits and slice each biscuit into 6-8 small pieces. Add to a medium bowl and pour the enchilada sauce over the top. Stir to coat.
Brown the ground beef in a large skillet. Drain the grease and set aside. Sauté onion for 3-5 minutes, add garlic, jalapenos and chiles and sauté another minute. Stir in the taco seasoning, any additional seasonings and required water. Stir to combine.
Add in refried beans and stir to combine. Remove from heat.
Pour the biscuits and enchilada sauce into a 9×13 baking dish. Top with the ground beef. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top. Top with bits of cilantro if desired.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the biscuits are cooked through and the cheese is fully melted.
Serve with your favorite taco garnishes. Leftovers store well in air tight containers in the fridge or freeze for later.
I like to use red onion when making Mexican style food.
Before baking and after. This obviously won’t win any looks contest, but it sure is tasty. How can that much cheese not be tasty?
