Mexican Biscuit Casserole

This Beef Enchilada Bubble Up casserole is a weeknight favorite. It is super easy to make and everyone cleans their plate! Taco meat, tomato sauce, enchilada sauce tossed with biscuits and topped with cheese. Comfort food at its best! All you need is some chips, salsa, guacamole, and queso dip and you are set. I’ll take this over the Mexican restaurant any day. Give this a try for your next taco night. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

How to Make Beef Enchilada Bubble Up

This is a breeze to make. Start with browning some ground beef. Add taco seasoning, enchilada sauce, tomato sauce, and cheese. Stir to combine. Cut refrigerated biscuits into fourths and stir them in the meat mixture. Spread the biscuit mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 25 minutes. Sprinkle the casserole with more shredded cheese and bake until melted.

  • This recipe is made for the smaller can of biscuits – NOT the bigger Grands biscuits. I used two cans of Pillsbury Flaky Layers Biscuits Buttermilk. It is a 6-oz can of biscuits with 5 biscuits in each can. You will need 10 total biscuits for this recipe.
  • You can substitute ground turkey for the ground beef in the casserole.
  • Feel free to add vegetables to the casserole. Black beans, corn, onions, olives, peppers are all good.
  • Make sure to spread out the biscuits in the pan so they cook evenly. You don’t want big gobs of uncooked biscuits in the casserole.
  • Can Beef Enchilada Bubble Up be made in advance? Yes. I prefer to cook the meat mixture ahead of time and toss with the biscuits right before baking. I find that the biscuits don’t rise as well if they sit overnight.
  • Can Beef Enchilada Bubble Up be frozen? Yes. Bake the casserole and cool completely. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and aluminum foil and freeze. When ready to serve, thaw and reheat covered in the oven or in the microwave.

Comments

  1. Made this last night.. My husband went back for seconds after telling me he didn't like enchiladas. We really enjoyed this recipe. Just found this blog yesterday. Going to try chicken bacon ranch tonight. Thanks Steph!

  2. TheMoMo – I would probably do it in two pans. The bread would be packed tighter in the pan and all the meat and sauce might not fit.

  3. I'd need to double this for my family…could I do that in one pan or do you think it would be best to do two separate pans? I'm not sure how the bottom bubbles would cook.

  4. I've never been a fan of beef enchiladas or the red enchilada sauce, so I made this with chicken and the green enchilada sauce ,it was great!

  5. I have made bubble up pizza for my kids before, but I never thought of bubble up enchiladas! I am going to have to give this a try!
