Beefed Up Biscuits

Sometimes the simplest recipes can really hit the spot. Tonight's dinner was Beefed Up Biscuits:

... which ended up being almost like chili with cornbread. I know it's a winner when we both have seconds. I made the beef mixture last night so that all SP had to do when he got home was preheat the oven, reheat the beef and pile it between the biscuits and then bake it off. Super simple and delicious.

Beefed Up Biscuits

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 small green pepper, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1 large can refrigerated flakey biscuits
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream

In a large fry pan brown ground beef, onion, green pepper and garlic. Drain. Stir in tomato sauce, chili powder, and cumin. Season with salt and pepper. Cut biscuits in half and place bottoms in a greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Remove meat mixture from heat and add 1 cup of the cheese. Spoon over dough and arrange remaining biscuits on top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until biscuits are deep golden brown. Serve with sour cream.
Pin It!


  1. Wow... this sounds like the perfect American casserole... and all the veggies are hidden! I just told Jay the recipe and said it would be a good thing to make for his family, and two teen brothers, for when we visit home in January. I can't wait to see your Pizza Friday post with new toppings!

  2. I was surprised at how good it was, to be honest. If you guys make it you have to let me know how it turns out and what everyone thinks. :)
