Mom’s Very Best Recipes is a real gem!


And this recipe for Texas Taco Biscuit Bake is a winner!  Blue Ribbon Winner!  It is super easy, super fast and delicious.


It is made with ingredients I bet you already have on hand.  That’s another plus.  Now let’s get to the recipe.

  • 3/4 t dried oregano
  • 1 – 2 t salt
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1/2 c diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1  1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 10 oz tube refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

In a large skillet over medium low heat, cook onion in oil until tender.  Add turkey and cook until no longer pink, drain.  Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, salsa and seasonings.  Cook and stir for 10-12 minutes until heated through.  Stir in corn, diced tomatoes and 3/4 cup cheese.  Spoon turkey mixture into an ungreased 2 1/2 quart casserole dish.  Top with remaining cheese.


Separate biscuits; arrange around the edge of casserole dish on top of turkey mixture.  Bake uncovered at 350 for 20-25 minutes, until biscuits are golden and turkey mixture is hot and bubbly.  Makes 6-10 servings.  YUM!
