Biscuit Enchiladas

Thursday, May 28, 2015

I love Pinterest recipes.  Only once or twice have I been let down by a recipe I have made that was a Pinterest find.  I think part has to do with that I know what I like and that I like cheesy, buttery, not healthy stuff, ha!  So, when I came upon a recipe that looked cheesy, yummy, and was a Mexican food-type dish, I knew this one was calling my name.

Upon reading the recipe, which dons low-fat cheese and subs ground turkey for ground beef, I decided to nix the low fat version for my own full fat one.  If there's one thing in this house we don't skimp on, it's cheese.  We are cheeseballs in personality, photos, and food!  The more cheese, the better, and low-fat cheese just isn't the same.  I also am weirded out by ground turkey, and I don't know why. If you prefer a healthier version, you can use ground turkey and low-fat cheese and biscuits.


Not only is this recipe delicious, it's fun and family friendly.  It's also easy and quick to throw together for a busy weeknight meal. Onto the cheesy, biscuit enchilada goodness...



Ingredients 


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 1/2 C. shredded cheese (Mexican blend or cheddar Jack) 
  • 10 oz. can of enchilada sauce (I use mild for my kiddo's sake)
  • 16 oz. can of refrigerator biscuits (I used Pillsbury Grands! Homestyle Original)

Optional
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 can of black or pinto beans
  • Any toppings you want! (I prefer sour cream and salsa verde)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13" pan. Brown ground beef in a skillet and drain the fat.  


2. Add enchilada sauce to the ground beef and let simmer while you prepare the biscuits.  If you are adding in corn or beans, do so now as well.  I usually do, but forgot to get some at the store this time, oops!

3. Open the can of biscuits and cut each one into fourths.  Lay the biscuit quarters in the greased 9x13" pan. 



4. Spread beef mixture over the biscuits and toss.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.  Use a fork or toothpick to make sure if the biscuits are done.  


5. Top with shredded cheese and return to oven for ten minutes. 


6. Serve with desired toppings and enjoy!

Henley loved this dish, which was pleasantly surprising!  When she finished what was on her tray she said "biscuit! biscuit"! Sorry the pics aren't pretty, but the taste will make up for it, I promise!
