Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 5- to 6-quart oval slow cooker with cooking spray. In 12-inch skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix and water; heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened. Remove from heat.
  • 2
    Stir in enchilada sauce, beans and green onions. Stir in 1 cup of the cheese. Spread mixture evenly in bottom of slow cooker.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, place melted butter. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Cut each biscuit into 6 pieces; add to butter in bowl, and toss to coat. Place in even layer over beef mixture in slow cooker.
  • 4
    Cover top of insert with large kitchen towel. Place slow-cooker lid on top of towel. (This will prevent condensation from dripping onto biscuits during cooking.) Cook on High heat setting 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours. Insert knife into center of casserole to test if biscuits are fully baked; outer edge of casserole will be deep golden brown.
  • 5
    Top mixture with remaining cup of cheese. Return lid to slow cooker; cook 5 to 10 minutes longer or until cheese melts.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Resist the urge to mix the ingredients in the slow cooker, as that can make the sides of the slow cooker messy and lead to burning.
  • tip 2
    You can use shredded pepper Jack, cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese in place of the Mexican cheese blend, if desired.
  • tip 3
    Serve your finished casserole with additional toppings like chopped fresh cilantro leaves, chopped tomatoes, chopped avocados and sour cream.
