Taco Biscuit Hotdish Recipe
When Spencer left for work this morning, he asked me to use up a pound of hamburger that was in the refrigerator. I was a little disappointed as I was planning on ham and cheese soup, but when life gives you hamburger, make taco biscuit hotdish! This is a family favorite although I made up the name for it. We just call it “That Stuff With the Biscuits On Top.” Besides the pound of hamburger I was able to find the rest of the ingredients in my cupboard. It’s easy to make for your own family:
Brown one pound hamburger with one chopped onion. Add some taco seasoning. I didn’t have any handy so I used:
2 tsp Chili Powder
and 1/2 tsp each of Oregano, Garlic Powder, and Cumin.
Add one can each of corn, kidney beans, and refried beans. Pour into a casserole dish and set aside.
Prepare the biscuits: Mix 1 3/4 cups flour and 3 teaspoons baking powder. Use a fork or pastry blender to cut in 1/3 cup shortening. Add 1/3 cup milk, or as much as needed to make a nice dough. Roll dough 1/2 inch thick and cut into 15 biscuits.
Arrange biscuits over hamburger mixture. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until biscuits are done.
