It's even cooler today than yesterday so I'm definitely in the mood to bake. This tasty casserole is easy to prepare and has all the flavor of tacos in an easy to take and serve form. I plan to make it for our church fellowship lunch next week and put the toppings on the side. You'd definitely want to do that if you think you might have left-overs to reheat. We usually have 2% milk, but you can use whatever milk you prefer. If you have a home mix taco flavoring, use that instead of the packaged seasoning. I haven't tried using cornbread mix instead of the biscuit mix, but I think it would work well too and add a little bit of corn flavor too. Alternatively, substitute a cup of crushed tortilla chips for the biscuit mix. Yes, you can add corn to the meat before spreading into the baking pan or mix it into the batter. If you like black olives, add those to the toppings too. If you like guacamole, layer that on too or substitute it for the sour cream. Try substituting drained Ro-tel for the tomatoes. Add a layer of tortilla chips to the baking pan before pouring in the meat. For extra kick, add a chopped jalepeno to the toppings, or to the beef as it cooks.

Ingredients

2 pounds ground beef

2 envelopes taco seasoning

4 large eggs

3/4 cup 2% milk

1-1/4 cups biscuit/baking mix

Dash black pepper

1/2 cup sour cream

2 to 3 cups chopped lettuce

3/4 cup chopped tomato

1/4 cup chopped green pepper

2 green onions, chopped

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat 10-12 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles; drain. Add taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions. Spoon meat into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish.

2. In a large bowl, beat eggs and milk. Stir in biscuit mix and black pepper. Pour over meat. Bake, uncovered, 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5-10 minutes.

3. Spread sour cream over top; sprinkle with lettuce, tomato, green pepper, onions, and cheese.
