Famous cowboy casserole gets a delicious twist in this extra cheesy version topped with flaky Pillsbury™ biscuits. It’s full of hearty ingredients like ground beef, beans, corn, tomatoes and chiles, but hardly takes any time to throw together. That’s what we call a five-star meal.

  • 1
    can (15 oz) Progresso™ red kidney beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1
    can (14.5 oz) corn kernels, drained
  • 1
    can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted crushed tomatoes

    can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles

    package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ original taco seasoning mix

    oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, cut into cubes

    cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend (8 oz)
  • 1
    can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Homestyle refrigerated Buttermilk biscuits
  • 1
    tablespoon butter, melted

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until no longer pink; drain. Return to skillet; stir in beans, corn, tomatoes, chiles, taco seasoning mix and chili powder. Heat to simmering.
  • 2
    Stir cream cheese into beef mixture until melted; remove from heat. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese. Pour into baking dish.
  • 3
    Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Cut each biscuit into 6 pieces; top beef mixture with biscuits. Brush biscuits with melted butter. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup shredded cheese. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown and baked through.

  • Make it fresh by serving this hearty casserole with fresh toppings. Try green onions, diced avocado, diced tomatoes, cilantro and sour cream.
  • Like it hot? Opt for shredded pepper Jack cheese in place of the Colby-Monterey Jack.
