TACO BISCUIT CASSEROLE

I think everyone has their list of dinners that they know they can count on. This taco biscuit bake is one of mine, along with creamy beef noodle bake and 20 minute garlic parmesan pasta. These 3 dinners get made all the time around my house because I can always count on my kids eating them with no whining. 

Taco biscuit bake is all the flavors of a taco but with flaky buttermilk biscuits. Best of all is that it’s only 6 simple ingredients. Plus whatever toppings you prefer.

My favorite part are the soft and flaky buttermilk biscuits. I don’t care how many “fancy” foods I eat, I will always love those refrigerated flaky biscuits. Every time I make this for dinner I find myself picking through it for those soft and buttery biscuits.

Plus, this is totally kid friendly. My tip for getting kids to eat better is to have something that they can do by themselves. Like the toppings for this taco biscuit bake is something they can put on themselves and customize it with what they like.

Brown some ground beef in a skillet pan and then add water, taco seasoning, and a can of tomato soup. Simmer for 5 minutes and then add the biscuit dough. Pour all that into your baking dish and let it cook. Sprinkle with a good helping of cheese and let that melt.

In just 30 minutes time you will have a cheesy, buttery and taco flavor filled casserole. Or a ‘bake’ if that is what you prefer. I’ve always hated saying casserole because I think casseroles sometimes get a bad rep as being gross, bland, or a throw-whatever-leftover-food-you-have-in-a-pan type of dish.

 Make up little serving bowls of your favorite taco toppings and let everyone go to work picking out their own toppings; salsa, sour cream, avocado, shredded lettuce, cheese, jalapeno, olives, green onions, diced tomato are just a few I can think of. 

I hope you love this as much as we do. Let me know in the comments below. I always love hearing from people.

Course: Main Course
Keyword: casserole, ground beef
Servings: 8
Author: Jessica - Together as Family
Ingredients
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 can (10.75 oz) condensed tomato soup
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tube (16.3 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury homestyle grand buttermilk biscuits
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
Taco Toppings
  • shredded lettuce
  • diced tomato
  • avocado
  • sour cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a 9x13 baking dish and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Cook beef over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Drain grease.
  3. Add tomato soup, water, and taco seasoning into the beef. Stir together. Turn heat down to medium and let simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  4. While meat is simmering, chop each biscuit piece (8 biscuits total in can) into 8 small pieces. Add all biscuit pieces into the beef mixture and stir together to combine.

  5. Dump into the 9x13 baking dish. Cook for 20 minutes. Meat mixture will be bubbly and the biscuits will be a light golden brown.
  6. Sprinkle the cheese on top and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

  7. Let the pan cool for 5 minutes to let the extra liquid thicken up. Serve with your favorite taco toppings.

Recipe Notes

To cut each biscuit in 8 pieces: cut biscuit in half and then cut each of the halves into 4 pieces. You will have 8 pieces total when done.

 

Use any cheese you want. I always use Colby-Jack cheese because that is our favorite.

      June 22, 2015 at 10:09 am It is really easy. SO easy that I remember thinking, when I made this for the first time, that it would have no flavor. That's not true at all! Thanks so much for visiting Julia and commenting. I love hearing from readers :)

    June 25, 2015 at 9:46 pm I thought this sounded really good and I cooked it tonight. I never follow a recipe 100% so I added a can of chili beans and a few spoonfulls of my homemade salsa to it and it was sooo good! My whole family loved it and I plan on giving it to my daughter-in-law as well. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

      June 26, 2015 at 12:03 am Hi Sarah! I'm so happy to hear you loved it. I think your idea of adding chili beans sounds so good. I actually think I might try that next time I make this :) Thanks so much for coming by and leaving a comment. Have a great weekend.

    July 4, 2015 at 6:25 pm You don't list the bake temperature so I'm just assuming 350 degrees cause that's what's on the biscuit can. They're in the oven now. My 5 year old had a grand time helping me add the biscuit chunks to the pan. I think the kids are going to love this meal. I added onion to the hamburger and some salsa to the meat mixture. My husband snuck it in.

    May 15, 2017 at 10:46 pm I wonder if this recipe can be used with a Crock-Pot? Thanks! Looks delicious!

      May 16, 2017 at 9:41 am I don't think it would work in the crock pot. Does not seem like there would be enough liquid to prevent everything from drying out badly. It's only a 30 minute meal so it's fairly easy to put together at the end of the day. I usually make this for dinner when we have a busy weeknight because it's so easy. Let me know if you try it in the crock pot :)

    June 11, 2017 at 6:58 am Looks delicious! I'm going to put my spin on it and serve for Sunday brunch, topped with an egg or two. This would also be good with chorizo in place of the ground beef. :)

      June 12, 2017 at 12:39 pm I've never had chorizo but I bet it would be delicious in this with the egg. Yum! Great idea.

      September 1, 2017 at 4:48 pm I think you would be fine using ground pork. It is a greasy meat so just be sure to drain it well and maybe blot it with a paper towel to try and get some of that grease off. But, yes it should work just fine.

    February 12, 2018 at 7:21 pm Would it taste bad with buttermilk biscuits instead? I only have a 7.5 oz of the homestyle at home and don’t wanna go to the store

      February 19, 2018 at 4:10 pm Buttermilk biscuits would be just fine. I've actually used them in this recipe before. I grabbed the wrong one at the store!

    May 21, 2018 at 6:06 pm Would it be ok to use tomato sauce or paste or diced tomatoes instead of tomato soup?

      May 23, 2018 at 10:13 pm You could do that but the flavor might be a bit different. Tomato sauce does not have much flavor by itself compared to the tomato soup. Same with diced tomatoes. It's always worth a try to see if you'll like it. I have only ever made the recipe as it's written so I am sorry I can't say for sure.

    November 2, 2018 at 1:25 pm I made this the other night, and absolutely loved it!! I added a small onion chopped up, and about 1/4C. of salsa to it. I didn't have any taco seasoning, but had Fajita seasoning so I used that. When I cut up all the biscuits, I thought it was going to be way too many, but it came out perfect! This is definitely one recipe that I will make again and again! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
