FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Can I make this with other flavors?

You bet. I have so many other ideas that I think this would work well with! Try using a meatloaf flavored ground beef base or an Italian version with ground sausage. You could even make a breakfast version with sausage, gravy and eggs. The sky is the limit with changing up the flavors!

What other toppings can I add?

This casserole already has quite a few things going on. But if you want to amp it up a bit more, you absolutely can. Try adding some more salsa, guacamole, diced avocado, pickled or fresh jalapeno slices. Whatever sparks your fancy!

What other cheese can I try?

I used sharp cheddar cheese but you can use other cheeses like Colby Jack, Monterey Jack, or a Mexican blend!

What else can I add to the casserole?

mix-ins you can add to the filling are pinto beans, black beans, bell peppers, or you can use Rotel in place of the salsa. Alternatively, if there is an ingredient in here you don't like, for example the corn, then just leave it out! It's as easy as that!

Any helpful tips for serving this casserole?

Sure thing! If you don't think the whole thing will get eaten at once, then I suggest that you serve it without the toppings. Put the toppings out separately and let people add whatever they like. This also helps when you go to store leftovers. If you piled everything on, things would end up wilting and getting soggy.

What side dishes would you serve with Bisquick Taco Casserole?

This really is a whole meal in itself but if I serve anything with it, it is usually a salad or a steamed vegetable like broccoli.

How to store leftovers?

Allow to cool then cover leftovers with plastic wrap while in the baking dish, or transfer to an airtight container. If all the toppings are on, it won't last long without getting soggy. If you're storing the toppings separately, it should last 3 days.
Additionally, you can freeze this casserole for up to 3 months. The consistency may change when thawed.

How to reheat?

Reheat leftovers in the microwave or oven until warmed through again. If using the oven, you may want to tent the baking dish with foil so you don't burn or brown the top too much.

HOW TO MAKE A BISQUICK TACO CASSEROLE

Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef with the onions, breaking it up into crumbles until there is no pink left, 8-10 minutes.

Ingredients

For the filling:

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 (1 ounce) packets taco seasoning
  • ¼ cup salsa (I like Herdez brand)
  • 15.25 ounce can corn, drained

For the topping:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups Bisquick mix
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, plus more for garnish

To serve:

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • shredded iceberg lettuce
  • small diced tomato
  • thinly sliced scallion
  • sliced black olives

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef with the onions, breaking it up into crumbles until there is no pink left, 8-10 minutes.
  • Add the garlic to the pan and mix it in until fragrant, 30 seconds.
  • Add the taco seasoning, salsa, and corn to the skillet and stir until combined. Pour this into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the milk and eggs.
  • Add the Bisquick to the bowl and stir it in until there are no dry patches. Stir in the cheese.
  • Pour the Bisquick mixture evenly on top of the ground beef.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the biscuit topping comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 15 minutes, then spread the sour cream on top. Garnish with shredded lettuce, diced tomato, scallions, and black olives. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • You do not need to add all the toppings to the top of this casserole. You can leave them out and allow everyone to top this with what they enjoy. 
  • Other cheese you can use Colby Jack, Monterey Jack, or Mexican blend.
  • Keep leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. Freeze for up to 3 months.
  • If you don’t think you will eat this whole casserole in one sitting, then I would definitely serve it without the toppings. If you store it with everything on top it would end up wilting and getting watery on top and that isn’t very pleasant.
  • I would reheat in the microwave or in the oven until warmed through. If reheating in the oven, cover the casserole top with foil so it doesn’t get too brown.
