This is a recipe I had not made for a very long time. A quick and easy supper idea that can everyone enjoy, perfect for that on the go family.

You can use the basic recipe of biscuit mix, eggs and milk but change up the meat, cheese and seasoning to suit your families personal taste. If you enjoy the taco flavors you will enjoy this recipe. 
  • 1 lb of  lean ground beef
  • 1 chopped  onion, diced
  • 1/2 green pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons of homemade Taco Seasoning or one package of low sodium store bought.
  • 1 small can of green chilies, drained
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of prepared biscuit mix 
  • 1 cup shredded cheese of your choice
  • olives of your choice (optional)
  • salsa  and sour cream
  1. Brown the ground beef with the onion and peppers on medium high heat.
  2. Drain excess fat.

  1. This recipe has ingredients and presentation which my family would like so the dish will turn up on our weekend menu very soon. I will make a gluten free biscuit crust. Thanks for posting!.

  2. I make my own baking mix, so this looks something I'd like to try. Thanks.

  3. This looks delicious and I can't wait to try it....thank you! Also, thank you for the ability to pin. I need to figure out how to add that to my blog. I pin all your recipes! They all look so good to me.

  4. Would I be able to freeze this as a freezer meal?

    1. Bentley & Krista, I personally have never tried to freeze this meal, but if you can freeze quiche I don't think there would be a problem freezing this. If you try it, come back and let us know how that worked out for you.

    2. Silly question but - would you freeze before or after making? Like I'd like to prep it Sunday and bake it can I do that or would it get all gross? Would you say I should bake it Sunday and refrigerate it and then warm and serve for dinner Monday?

    3. Nicole, I would prepare everything EXCEPT the batter the day before and place it in the pie plate or whatever you are using. Then the day you plan to bake it mix the flour, eggs and milk and bake it. I have not frozen it or made it in advance and reheated to give you a tried and true answer.
