Simple Southwestern Casserole

Zesty, meaty casserole with a biscuit surprise  you will be amazed at how extraordinarily tasty this simple combination is. This recipe has become so popular in my family.

Makes 9 (1-cup) servings


1 pound ground sirloin
1 onion, chopped
1 (10-ounce) can enchilada sauce
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup frozen corn
1 (8-10 count) can reduced-fat refrigerator biscuits
1 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican blend cheese
1/3 cup chopped green onions



1. Preheat oven 350°F. Coat 13x9x2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In large nonstick skillet, cook meat and onion until meat is done; drain excess fat. Add enchilada sauce, tomato sauce, black beans and corn, stirring well. Cut biscuits into fourths and stir into meat mixture.
3. Transfer to prepared pan. Bake 25 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle with cheese and green onions. Return to oven and bake 5-7 minutes more or until cheese is melted.

Terrific Tip: Use kitchen scissors to make cutting biscuits easy. If you have trouble finding enchilada sauce, you can substitute salsa.
