Deep-Dish Taco Squares Recipe

This hearty, comforting dish from Barb Tropansky has plenty of south-of-the-border appeal. "I make a quick crust from biscuit mix and top it with a thick layer of ground beef and cheddar cheese," she explains from Bella Vista, Arkansas.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup reduced-fat biscuit/baking mix
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 small tomato, sliced

Directions

  • 1. In a nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Remove from the heat; stir in the cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream and onion.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine biscuit mix and water. Spread into an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with beef mixture and tomato. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 20 minutes or until bottom crust is golden brown. Yield: 6 servings.
