This twist-on-a-taco recipe has always been a hit at our house! The original recipe came from the Once-A-Month Cooking cook book – a resource my mom and sisters and I often relied on during one of our marathon freezer cooking days.
If you like making up meals ahead of time, this is a great one to have in your collection since it requires only minimal last minute preparations! Of course, you can also just make it and bake it immediately, which is what I normally do these days.
Feel free to experiment by adding other taco toppings such as salsa, onions, or black olives. If you like your Mexican food spicy, sprinkle in some cayenne pepper, or add some jalapenos on top! Yum!
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
- 1 package taco seasoning mix
- 1 4-ounce can diced mild green chilies, drained
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup Bisquick (I use 1 cup flour, 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder, ¼ teaspoon salt and 1 Tablespoon oil in place of the Bisquick)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 tomatoes, sliced (I only use 1 and slice it thin)
- 8 ounces sour cream (or plain greek yogurt)
- 1 chopped tomato
- Shredded lettuce
In a large skillet, cook and stir the ground beef and onion until beef is brown. Drain. Combine beef with taco seasoning mix and spread in a 9-inch pie plate. Sprinkle with chilies.
Beat milk, baking mix and eggs until smooth (15 seconds on high in a blender or 1 minute with hand beater). Pour milk mixture over beef.
(To freeze, cover plate with foil and freeze. To prepare for serving, thaw pie.)
Bake uncovered in a preheated 400 oven for 30-35 minutes. Top with sliced tomatoes and sprinkle with cheese.
Bake an additional 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown. Top with sour cream, chopped tomato, and shredded lettuce. Serve immediately.
