Now the tortilla is actually swapped out to something even more amazing here, and that’s biscuit dough.

Yes, biscuit dough is diced and thrown right into the skillet, letting that get nicely golden brown.

  1. This recipe is excellent and very delicious.  I cut the biscuits small and made sure the meat mixture was bubbling when I topped it with the biscuit pieces and cheese.  It cooked up perfectly and we all enjoyed it!

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    We LOVE this dish and has been in our monthly rotation for years now. My picky eater loves it and requests it, which means it is a winner! I was quickly perusing the other reviews and I’ve never had an issue with the biscuits not cooking & we stir them into the dish, so not sure why other people have issues with it? Highly recommend this dish!

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    This was amazing.  Very easy and quick to make.  The whole family loved it.  I did use more enchilada sauce instead of tomato sauce.  I cut the biscuits as directed and placed them on top and they cooked  all the way through.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    This is a must in our family’s dinner plan. My family asks for this so often that it’s bookmarked. It’s simple ingredients and easy clean up make this a go to many nights. 

  5. Rated 2 out of 5

    I followed the instructions and read the majority of the reviews beforehand. Despite following the recommendations other reviewers suggested such as cutting the dough into smaller pieces, the dough still came out undone. Won’t make this again. 

  6. i’m doing a freezer meal club, and wondering if this has been tried as a freezer meal before, and if it’s just as good? Would love to try it for that!

  7. The biscuits were too doughy.  Will not make again. 

  8. I think my church family will like this one. I made the regular one and took allday to get it ready.

  9. I made this and it was delicious. I used extra enchilada sauce instead of the tomato sauce and did not mix in the biscuit dough as other reviewers suggested.  Next time I’ll probably leave the biscuits off. Yum Yum!

  10. Unfortunately, this one did not turn out as expected. Against my better judgement, I stirred in the dough as stated in the recipe. This resulted in uncooked dough throughout the dish. Despite putting it back in the oven for another 20 minutes, the dough never cooked. We tried to pick around the dough but ultimately ended up tossing the entire dish into the trash.

  11. I made this last night – delicious! I also put my cut up biscuit pieces on top (instead of mixing in) and they browned up perfectly. Added a can of diced green chilis. You can definitely load this up with extra veggies, etc. Very good and will put this in our regular dinner rotation. Thank you for such a simple and delicious recipe! I bought your cookbook and cannot wait to try more recipes. Have loved all of the one’s I made so far! 🙂

  12. I made this tonite and it was great! I added onion and green chiles, stirred in the biscuits just to top layer. Baked for 25 min and it turned out perfect. Will def make again!

  13. Made this and it was delicious.  The only problem was, not all my biscuits completely baked.  Some were mushy and not cooked at all.  I would not stir them in next time, but just lay them on top.

  14. I cooked this recipe with a few minor changes for ingredients I had on hand and it was AH-MAZING! I only had crescent dough on hand, so I used that instead of biscuits. I also had some chopped leeks that needed to be used so I tossed those in as well. It was so good that my entire family gobbled it up, including my picky 4 year old that never finishes his dinner. I will gladly cook this every night if it saves my sanity at meal time 🙂

  15. What kind of tomato sauce do you use 

  16. One pan cooking is the way to go! We enjoyed this dinner. I used a homemade taco seasoning proportioned for 1 lb of meat. I used the contents of ENTIRE cans to avoid the quandary of what to do with the leftover bit of beans, tomato sauce, and enchilada sauce. So I used 10 oz of enchilada sauce, 8 oz tomato sauce, 15 oz beans, and 1 1/2 cups frozen corn. It worked fine! I also added half of a can of green chilies because I do have another recipe that will use the other half, but the full can would probably work as well. This proves to be a flexible recipe. One could add some heat if desired like adding 1/4 tsp ground or crushed red pepper. Thanks for an easy to make and clean-up meal!

  17. Do you know any of the nutritional values or calories in this?  Or could you tell me how to figure it out?  I am trying to watch my girlish figure and still feed the family awesome food.

    • ​Nutritional information is provided only for select and new recipes at this time. However, if it is not available for a specific recipe, it is best that you use free online resources at your discretion (you can Google “nutritional calculator”) to obtain such information.

  18. “This is a recipe you should make again and again and again” – that’s what my fiancé stated as he ate it. A little bit of sour cream and hot sauce elevated it. This tastes more awesome than it looks!

  19. Made this tonight and it was pretty good!! I always love breaking out my 12 inch skillet!! I just threw in a whole can of corn, black beans, and pato sauce. I used my own taco seasoning because it is better then the packaged junk!!

  20. This recipe was absolutely DELICIOUS!!!! I will DEFINITELY be adding this to my meal plan! I’m so full (on top of being pregnant lol) I’m about to burst lol..Thank You!

  21. This seemed like a great idea. I did question “stirring in” the biscuits. And rightly so. Should NOT have done that. Unless raw dough in the middle of a casserole is your thing. Try using lass dough and sprinkling the pieces on top with the cheese.

  22. Hi there,
    Can I make the buttermilk biscuits, cos in SA we don’t have that or is there another equivalent to use. Recipe looks delicious, would like to try it 🙂

  23. This looks so yummy i can’t wait to test it out! Thanks for posting it! I LOVE one pot wonder meals.

  24. I hesitated at making this because I normally eat very “clean” and don’t buy or eat things from packages, such as biscuit dough. But this looked so good, I figured one time wouldn’t hurt me. 😉 I’m eating it now and it’s delicious! I used organic, grass-fed ground beef. The biscuits I bought were larger, like the “Grands” (I bought generic), so cutting them into quarters made the pieces too big and they didn’t cook through in the 1/2 hour. I had to bake another 4-5 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!

  25. Hello! I made this tonight and had an issue with the dough that mixed in not cooking and staying doughy. I baked it for the full 30 minutes, which I was kind of worried about because my oven tends to like to over-cook things, (cookies I always have to cook at the lesser of the given time, lest they burn), so I always think it runs hot. Everything on top was cooked well – the dough and cheese was nicely done, but inside the dough was uncooked and the casserole was a bit runny. Not sure what I could do differently?

  26. This looks awesome, I’m putting it on my menu to make this week. My question is this: why the additional tomato sauce? Why not just use more enchilada sauce?

    • It’s really to balance out all the flavors, but please feel free to substitute the tomato sauce with additional enchilada sauce to suit your preferences.

  27. Hi Chungah –

    I’m preparing this for dinner tomorrow (Sunday night). This’ll be the 3rd recipe of yours I’ve done in 10 days, we LOVE your dishes!

    Is it possible when you post recipes to include reheating instructions? Its just two of us so usually, we get 2-3 nights of meals from one recipe. I’m assuming typically microwaving is easiest but sometimes (with baked dishes), reheating in the oven gives it the best results.

    Thanks so much & keep up the good work, I’m sharing your recipes on facebook and really hyping your site.

  28. Hi, Should I use a cast iron skillet to make this??? or would a dutch oven work as well?

  29. I kicked this up a notch with our Ghost Pepper sea salt so good ! thanks

  30. I had pinto chili beans and I made my own biscuits but added taco seasoning into my flour!! Yummy!!!

  31. I just made this for dinner. It’s so good. I did kidney instead of black beans. Added Mushrooms & Onions. Sooooooooooooo Good!

  32. This looks yummy! BUT could anyone tell me what the biscuit dough is in the UK? Or a suitable equivalent?

  33. I had a friend come over this past week for an impromptu craft night. I handed my husband this recipe and pleaded that he make dinner for the night so we could get our craft on! The entire time he was making it in the kitchen we could hear him gawking and drooling over it and nearing the end of it he insisted that we come watch it bake with him for 5 minutes because it looked THAT good.

    After taking our first bite we fell in love! I think next time we make this I may put my helping on a bed of lettuce or spinach, just so that I don’t feel so guilty eating multiple helpings of this deliciousness!

  34. This was delicious! I excluded the corn since my kids wouldn’t eat it. I would use this meat in a traditional taco too. I also made my own taco seasoning. It is very easy, stores well, and doesn’t have additives. You most likely have all of the spices in your cabinet already!

  35. Whoah cheese flavor again! I have searched for some recipes and all I’ve seen is cheese recipe. My son will celebrate his 2nd birthday next weekend and since my son is a cheese lover, I will add this to the list. Can you recommend some recipes to add on the menu? Thanks in advance.

  36. Loved every one of these One Pot Wonders !
    Thanks a bunch……

  37. Made this tonight and it was damn delicious!!! I was out of black beans so I used kidney beans and it was still amazing. The buttermilk biscuits are genius and the cilantro really ties it all in. Thank you!!

  38. Wow!! This is sooo yummy! Made this tonight for dinner and it’s a new fav! I was pretty worried about just mixing the biscuit dough in, but it totally works! (And us the best part!) I also was feeling there wasn’t many ingredients (like more veggies and things) but it doesn’t need them. So quick and easy to make just it icing in the cake. Thanks!

  39. Do you actually stir in the biscuit dough or do you top the dish with it? I’m worried that when I stir it in, they will clump together, melt slightly, or it will all end up on one side of the dish.

    • Mandy, as indicated in the instructions, you will “Stir in biscuits and top with cheese.” Clumping is not much of an issue but if you are worried about it, please feel free to top off the skillet with the biscuits instead of stirring it in. Hope that helps!

      • I stirred in the dough and it didn’t seem to bake at all. I put it in for another 15 minutes so we will see what happens

        • Oh no – I worry that maybe your oven temperature is not calibrated and may be set at a much lower temperature than indicated in the recipe.

  40. Wowzers this was delish, made a few minor changes/add ins but man what a great meal to end a crazy busy day. Served it with a side of spinach. I am already super excited for lunch tomorrow (leftovers for the win!) Thank you, thank you, thank you! Love all your one pot meals please keep them coming 🙂 YUM

  41. What an awesome idea, to use biscuit dough!! It’s like an enchilada pot pie… holy moly. Can’t wait to try, thanks for the recipe 🙂 Pinned!

  42. Made this last nite its great thanks so much I am 85 years old and need simply recipes Kiss LOL thanks again

  43. This recipe is a family favorite and I just made it for the first time! I added diced canned chilis and I sautéed an onion with the beef. Definitely will be sharing with friends.

  44. It’s a winner! This is seriously one of the best one pot casseroles I’ve made. As with any casserole, you have a bit of liberty with ingredients. I sauteed onions and red pepper with the meat just because I like it. Along with the taco seasoning, I added a couple of dashes of Chipotle Tabasco sauce because I like things a little spicy. I accidentally bought a green enchilada sauce and a mexican tomato sauce (with chilies). I could only find a Grands type buttermilk biscuilt so I used 5 of them and baked the others for another use. It came out of the oven looking at beautiful as the the pictures above, but the pictures do not do this casserole justice. As good as the pictures are, imagine the taste x 10! I will definitely make this many times and I’ve already shared with recipe with friends and family. We are retired so I don’t have a large brood to feed anymore, but you could easily adapt this recipe to a 10 x 13 dish (no longer one pot,but who cares?) to feed a bigger family.

  45. I LOVE one pot meals! So easy… and this one looks so clever! The cheesy topping makes me want to drool all over the picture!

  46. Oh dear! You’ve done it again! Another excellent yet easy recipe. I did it yesterday & it was delicious. I’m a vegetarian so I omitted the meat part. Next time I’m going to use Indian style Garbanzo curry for some protein addition. Please post more vegetarian or veggie adaptable recipes. I love your blog.

  47. Just signed up for a meal train for my room mother. I think her family (which include my student!) will love this. I will have to throw it together after school and this looks like it would be speedy. Do you think it would work okay if I prepped everything the night before and just threw it into the oven from the fridge? That would be ideal! Any recommendations for sides? Dessert?

    • I’m not entirely sure if you can prep it the night before as I have never tried it myself. Please use your best judgment for preparation. As for sides and dessert – that really depends on what your family likes. We just ate this as is and gobbled up the entire pan!

  48. All my favorite Mexican flavors with one dish to wash? yes Please. Pinning to try some night soon.

  49. Love the addition of biscuit dough. So delicious looking!!

  50. This sounds and looks delicious! Just added it to my weekly meal list!!

  51. Absolutely freakin’ amazing! I made it tonight and my son and I had the same reaction to the first bite: oh dear god!

  52. We definitely need to make this for our next Taco Tuesday!

  53. It’s in the oven! 🙂

  54. So much cheesy goodness. My fork is ready!

  55. Nice and easy. Thanks so much.

  56. Looks and sounds fantastic! I may try this but with a layer of cornbread batter on the top instead of the biscuit dough. Larry

  57. That looks delicious! I can’t wait to try it. Thanks for sharing!

  58. Woman….it is 5:32 Am. I haven’t had breakfast yet. Here you come with your delicious looking improvisation on enchiladas and get my tastebuds going! Hand me a plateful.
    Seriously Chungah….you are one of only two I follow so from a fan…..this looks like a keeper for me.have a terrific day.

  59. This looks amazing and very creative – thank you for sharing!

  60. Who does not love a good enchilada? AND who does not love all the work it takes to make said enchiladas?
    BUT NO MORE. One pan, amazing, enchilada bake to the rescue! This.Is.Awesome. Pinned!

  61. Mmmm, that looks soooo good! I just wanna scoop it all into a tortilla and munch, and it’s not even nine o’clock in the morning here yet, haha! Eating it straight from the pan seems like what would be more likely to happen though, yum! x

  62. I am so glad to see this recipe come to life 🙂 You made it look amazing! I don’t even eat meat and I want some of that gooey cheese!

    • Hi. Happened to see your comment at the top and wanted to let you know that I made this recipe with vegetarian Morningstar Grillers Crumbles and it turned out fantastic!
