Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Brown ground beef in a large skillet and drain off fat. Add the taco seasoning, enchilada sauce, tomato sauce and 1 cup of cheese. Stir to combine.
Cut the refrigerated biscuits into fourths and stir them in the meat mixture.
Spread the biscuit mixture into the prepared baking dish.
Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake an additional 10 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
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.
