Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat 10-12 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles; drain. Add taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions. Spoon meat into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish.

  • Spread sour cream over top; sprinkle with lettuce, tomato, green pepper, onions and cheese.
    Freeze option: Cool baked casserole; cover and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Unwrap casserole; reheat on a lower oven rack until heated through and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°. Cool for 5-10 minutes, then top as directed.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • "Migas" means "crumbs" in Spanish. For a migas twist, swap a cup of torn tortillas or coarsely crushed tortilla chips for the biscuit mix. Then bake till set (it may take a little longer).
  • For individual portions that kids will love, bake in greased muffin cups until golden brown, 15-20 minutes.
