The result was this spicy, cheesy, Deep Dish Mexican Casserole, using Bisquick as the crust. It was so easy and my husband proclaimed that he loved this better than other versions I’ve made in the past.
Here’s how I made it.
Bisquick Deep Dish Taco Casserole
1 pound ground beef, browned & drained
1 medium onion, diced
2 gloves of garlic, minced
1 can Whole Kernel Corn, drained
1 can Red Gold Tex-Mex Petite Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies (drained)
1 cup Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
2 cups Bisquick
2 Tablespoons corn meal
1/2 to 3/4 cup water
1 package taco seasoning
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a skillet, add ground beef, diced onion, and minced garlic. Cook over medium high heat until meat is browned. Drain grease from the mixture.
Add taco seasoning. Each taco seasoning packet is different in regards to the amount of water it calls for. Check the back of your packet and add the required amount of water. Follow directions on the seasoning packet for directions on how long to cook after adding the seasoning and water.
In a bowl, combine Bisquick and corn meal. Gradually add water and mix well until you have a smooth batter. It will take about 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup of water.
In a deep dish casserole pan such as this Baker’s Advantage Ceramic Deep Dish Pie Dish, spray the bottom and sides with cooking spray.
Pour Bisquick mixture into the deep dish bakeware.
Add ground beef & onion mixture and spread on top of the batter.
Add 1 can of whole kernel corn that has been drained and spread on top of meat.
Drain the juice from one can of tomatoes and green chilies and spread on top of the corn. I like to use the Red Gold brand of tomatoes. For more recipes using Red Gold tomatoes click here (Caribbean Chicken Burger), here (Mexican Squash Casserole) or here (Italian Stuffed Zucchini Boats).
Top the tomatoes with 1 cup of shredded cheese. I like to use the Mexican blend but you could use any blend of cheese that you prefer.
Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is golden brown.
Remove from oven and allow to sit for about 10 minutes. Top with cilantro, serve and enjoy!
