Taco Casserole

I found this recipe buried in my email inbox and added it to the menu.  It said "source unknown" but I'm positive I got it from one of my friends at Babycenter.  This was DELICIOUS!!  There is no doubt this will be added to our normal rotation.  Did I say D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S?!?!

I did make a few changes and will type the recipe as I prepared it~ 

Taco Casserole

16 oz taco sauce
12 ounce can buttermilk biscuits
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 can sliced olives, drained
1 lb ground turkey
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
8 ounces mushrooms, diced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.  Spread taco sauce evenly over bottom of dish. 

Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces.  Place biscuit pieces in hot sauce, turning to coat.  Sprinkle biscuits with olives and half of the cheese.  Bake for 15-18 minutes.

In a large skillet, combine turkey, bell pepper, onion, mushrooms, cumin and chili powder.  Cook until ground turkey is cooked through.

Sprinkle the ground beef mixture over the baked biscuit mixture.  Top with the remaining cheese.  Bake an additional 5-7 minutes until cheese is melted. 

Serve with sour cream.
