John Wayne Casserole


I actually found this recipe while looking for another. My husband loooved it! Plus it only cost me around $6 to make. I have left off the jalapenos before, and I have also substituted the tomatoes and bell pepper with rotel. Instead of bisquick I have used pizza dough (it was a lot cheaper that way).

John Wayne Casserole

2 lbs ground beef cooked and drained
1 pack taco seasoning
4 oz sour cream
8 oz shredded cheese divided in half
1 yellow onion chopped
1 chopped tomato
1 green bell pepper chopped
jalapeno peppers (slices)
4 oz mayonnaise
2 cups bisquick

Preheat 325°. Cook beef, drain, and add taco seasoning according to package. In a separate bowl combine sour cream, 1/2 the cheese, 1/2 the onion and mayo; set aside. Mix bisquick (according to the directions) and add to the bottom of a greased 9×13 casserole dish. Saute remaining onion & bell pepper until soft. On top of bisquick add meat, tomatoes, bell peppers and onion, jalapenos, sour cream mixture, and top with remaining cheese. Bake 30-40 minutes until edges are lightly brown.
