Cheesy Taco Casserole



2 pounds ground beef

1 packet (1 oz.) taco seasoning

4 eggs

3/4 cup whole milk

1 3/4 cups biscuit mix or bisquick

1/2 cup sour cream

2 cups shredded or chopped lettuce

1 cup finely chopped tomatoes

2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese

Black olives (sliced, optional)

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper (to taste)


Preheat the oven to 400º F (200º C) and lightly spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with non-stick spray.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and milk until they are combined. Stir in the biscuit mix, salt, and pepper (if using), and set this aside.

Season the beef with salt and pepper, and then cook it until it is browned. Drain the fat and mix in the taco seasoning.

Spread the beef evenly in the greased baking dish, then pour the biscuit mix on top, spreading it evenly over the beef.

Place the baking dish in the oven and bake it until the biscuit layer turns golden brown. This should take about 22-25 minutes.

Once done, remove the dish from the oven and let it cool. Afterward, spread the sour cream over the biscuit layer.

Sprinkle the chopped lettuce, tomatoes, and optional olives over the sour cream, then add a generous layer of cheddar cheese on top.

Serve the casserole hot and savor every bite!

This recipe gives you the ultimate taco experience without any of the hassle. Plus, the sturdy biscuit base means that every serving is a perfect balance of all the ingredients. Now, who's ready for taco night? Enjoy!
