Taco Casserole Recipe


2 pounds ground beef

4 eggs

1 packet taco seasoning (1 oz.)

3/4 cup whole milk

1 3/4 cups biscuit mix

1/2 cup sour cream

2 cups shredded lettuce

1 cup chopped tomatoes

2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese

Sliced olives (optional)

Salt and pepper to taste


Prep: Start by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C). Lightly grease a 9x13-inch casserole dish to prevent sticking.

Cook the Beef: Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat. Once cooked, drain any excess fat and stir in the taco seasoning. Ensure the meat is evenly coated with the seasoning for maximum flavor.

Mix: In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until well combined. Gradually add the biscuit mix along with a pinch of salt and pepper, stirring until the mixture is smooth.

Assemble: Spread the seasoned beef evenly across the bottom of your greased casserole dish. Carefully pour the biscuit mixture over the beef, spreading it out to cover the meat completely.

Bake: Place the casserole in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Garnish: Allow the casserole to cool slightly, then top it with dollops of sour cream, a generous layer of shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and grated cheddar cheese. Add sliced olives if desired for an extra pop of flavor.

Serving Suggestions:

This Taco Casserole is a versatile dish that pairs wonderfully with a variety of sides. Consider serving it alongside a fresh green salad, a side of guacamole, or even some extra salsa for those who love a little more heat.

Whether it's the star of your next potluck or the centerpiece of a cozy family dinner, this Taco Casserole is guaranteed to satisfy. Enjoy the warmth, the flavors, and the joy of sharing this delightful dish with everyone you love.
