Bubble-Up Taco Bake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Hippie2MARS

I'm fascinated with bubble-up recipes!. This recipe uses your favorite salsa, allowing you to control the heat. I used my sister's awesome homemade salsa in mine. You can top the casserole with your favorite taco toppings, or serve them on the side.

This was very good. I added corn to the meat/bean mixture. I also cooked the biscuits by itself for 15 minutes before adding the meat topping only because I have found in the past when I do a dish with adding biscuits on top or below, the biscuits never cook fully and it comes out doughy. Easy to make and everyone loved this dish!
