Cheesy Taco Casserole
Tonight I made a quick and easy dinner that my family loved, Cheesy Taco Bake!
Out of 5 stars, my family gave it 4 1/2, not too bad for a dinner I pulled off last minute. I know it would have received 5 stars if I had fresh limes in the house… next time. My husband had three helpings…three! I’d call this dinner a success.
2 pounds ground beef
1 (1 oz.) packet taco seasoning
3/4 cup whole milk
1 3/4 cups biscuit mix or bisquick
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cups lettuce, chopped or shredded
1 cup tomato, finely chopped
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Black olives, sliced, optional
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400º F and lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with non-stick spray.
In a large bowl, beat eggs and milk together until combined, then stir in biscuit mix, and salt and pepper, if using. Set aside.
Season beef with salt and pepper, then cook until browned. Drain fat, then stir in taco seasoning.
Place beef in an even layer in greased baking dish, then spread biscuit mix in an even layer on top of beef.
Transfer baking dish to oven and bake until biscuit layer is golden brown, 22-25 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes, then spread sour cream on top of biscuits.
Top with chopped lettuce, tomatoes and olives, if using, then sprinkle cheddar cheese on top.
Serve hot and enjoy!
