This cheesy, slightly spicy, totally hearty recipe for taco biscuit bake is sure to be a casserole family favorite!


  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 8 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef 
  • ½  sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 15 ounce can chopped tomatoes with chilies, drained
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (about two tablespoons)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup sour cream, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Any taco garnishes you like!  We love chopped iceberg lettuce, chopped tomatoes and a little more sour cream.  Do I hear guacamole?


  • Preheat oven to 400 and spray an 9 x 13 inch or similar size casserole with cooking spray.
  • Mix together one cup of Bisquick , 4 tablespoons melted butter and  1/4 cup milk.
  • Press the Bisquick dough into the bottom of the baking dish and bake for 5-8 minutes or until golden.  Remove and set aside.
  • Put the ground beef and chopped onion in a large skillet and cook it over medium heat until the beef is browned.
  • Stir in tomatoes, taco seasoning and ¼ cup water and simmer for 5 minutes or until liquid is mostly gone.  Turn off the heat and set aside.
  • Put 1 cup sour cream and the cheddar cheese into a mixing bowl and mix together.
  • Spoon the beef mixture onto your crust, then dollop the sour cream mixture on top of that.
  • Mix the remaining Bisquick and milk together with the rest of the melted butter and dollop it on top of the filling, smooshing it over to the sides a little (it’s fine if it doesn’t completely cover it). 
  • Bake for 25 minutes, then let it rest for about ten minutes.  Cut into squares and serve with your favorite toppings!

Equipment We Used to Make This Recipe


    • Bisquick: This baking mixture of flour, baking soda, shortening and sugar can be found in the breakfast aisle of your supermarket near the pancake mix.

    • Tomatoes with Chiles: You can take the spice level of this recipe up or down depending on the spice level of these canned tomatoes, which can be found near the regular canned tomatoes. You can also use regular canned tomatoes if you want a very mild spice level.

    • Garnishes: We love to top our serving of taco casserole with everything from sour cream to chopped lettuce and tomatoes to guacamole!
