Famous Taco Casserole Recipe: This Easy Taco Casserole Recipe Tastes Even Better the Next Day

A friend passed along this taco casserole recipe to me, knowing how much I love easy-to-assemble, pop-in-the-oven casserole meals. It's based on the Taco Fiesta Bubble Up Casserole found at Drizzle Me Skinny – with a few changes. I made the easy recipe ahead of time and kept it refrigerated until supper, then popped it in to bake for an hour.

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 tube country biscuits dough (10 biscuits)
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1 jar salsa
  • 2 bell peppers, diced (I used red and yellow)
  • 1 cup red onion, diced
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • sour cream, for serving

Here's how to make it:

  1. Brown the ground beef with the taco seasoning, chopped onion and peppers. Once cooked, transfer to a large mixing bowl and add salsa. Stir well. 
  2. Cut each biscuit into six pieces. Place half the biscuit pieces into a sprayed lasagna dish and cover with half the beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Repeat layers. Sprinkle the top with the green onion.
  3. Loosely cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F (if making immediately). If refrigerated, increase bake time to 45 minutes, then remove foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Allow to rest 5 minutes before serving. Top with a dollop of sour cream, if desired.

Instead of Biscuits, I wonder how this would be with coarsely crushed tortilla chips on the top and bottom...
