Ready In:




  • Brown beef, onions and peppers and drain.
  • Add in tomato sauce, chilies, chili powder and garlic salt.
  • Simmer while preparing biscuits.
  • Seperate the biscuits and halve them.
  • Place i/2 of the biscuits on the bottom of an ungreased 8-10 inch pan.
  • Slightly brown these in a 375 degree oven.
  • Remove.
  • Combine 1/2 of the cheese, sour cream and egg.
  • Mix well.
  • Remove meat mixture from the heat and stir in the sour cream mixture.
  • Spoon over the browned biscuits.
  • This part is up to you, I like it both ways.
  • You can now add remaining cheese then biscuits or place the biscuits on top of the meat and then the cheese.
  • Either way bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes.

    I also noticed that the biscuits became too done with the amount of time directed, (but that's the way baking goes sometimes!). I baked the first layer of biscuits for a few minutes before adding the other ingredients, which worked well. Due to some dietary issues, I omitted the tomato, the chiles, and most of the sour cream, and the casserole was still yummy. (I bet it is divine with all of that, though!) I may try the recipe again, adding a creamy sauce of some kind for moisture (my version was a little dry). Thanks!

    I love this recipe and so does my family! My mom would make this when I was growing up and I was delighted to find it here! Thanks for the post DiB!

    EDITED REVIEW: This has a nice flavor. I must have misunderstood the "slightly brown" the biscuits part and when the casserole was finished completely, the biscuits were way too done. What I did was take the total stated 55 minute cooking time listed and subtract the 35 minute cooking time (as listed after you put the topping on) for a total of 20 minutes to "slightly brown" the biscuits. Next time, I will just set the biscuits before spooning the mixture on (maybe 5 minutes)and use the cooking time of 35 minutes for the ENTIRE cooking time. This recipe is worth making again to figure out the correct cooking time/temp for the biscuits to be done, yet still tender.

    Very easy and very good casserole. I made this for my grandmother and my parents. They all seemed to like it. Will make this again but next time I will use hotter chili powder since I like spicey foods. Thanks for the recipe!
