Phew, it’s Monday!
I don’t usually say this, but I am really glad the weekend is over. My husband rode the LotoJa race which is a 204-mile bike ride from Logan, Utah to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in ONE day! It was definitely hotter than last year and he battled some dreadful headwinds, but finished it! I’m always glad when it’s over because I am a huge worrier. I worry that he might crash or get hit by a car, or have bike problems, etc. So yes, I’m glad the weekend has come and gone and I’m so happy Rich finished the race and is still in one piece. Way to go Rich!
Alright, let’s be honest, some nights don’t you just need/want a fast, easy, delicious meal? Ok, maybe every night you want that. This Bubble Up Enchilada Bake is that meal. I saw this over at Buns in My Oven (love her stuff!) awhile back and finally got around to making it. It’s so easy and requires simple ingredients you probably already have.
I love how completely versatile this is, you can adjust it to your family’s likings. I used ground chicken instead of ground beef just because that’s what I had. I used medium enchilada sauce because we like a little kick, if you don’t then use mild sauce. Top is off with some sliced avocado or guacamole and some sour cream (which I forgot in the pictures) and you have a fabulous, uncomplicated, scrumptious dinner.
- 1 package Pillsbury Grands! biscuit dough
- 10 oz. can enchilada sauce (mild or medium)
- 1 lb. pound ground beef or chicken (I used chicken)
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 4 ounce can diced green chiles
- 1 cup grated cheddar
- 1 cup grated pepper jack or monterey jack
- Fresh cilantro for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Open the biscuits and slice each biscuit into 8 small pieces. Add to a medium bowl and pour the enchilada sauce over the top. Stir to coat.
Brown the ground beef in a large skillet. Drain the grease and stir in the taco seasoning and 2 tablespoons of water. Stir in the green chiles.
Pour the biscuits and enchilada sauce into a 9x13 baking dish. Top with the ground beef. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top. Top with bits of cilantro if desired.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the biscuits are cooked through and the cheese is fully melted.
Serve with sliced avocado or guacamole.
