This is the dish I take most often to potlucks, and the pan comes home empty every time. It's a stick-to-your ribs casserole that has the taco taste everyone loves. —Kim Stoller, Smithville, Ohio

"Haven't tried it yet but will. How about corn bread mix instead of biscuit."

"I made exactly as written. It was good, however, it could benefit from a little more flavor. I was thinking maybe adding salsa...any other suggestions in kicking it up a notch? Thanks!"

"This was a different take on taco night. We really enjoyed it."

"I thought this was great. Easy to make for a weeknight dinner and tasted like a taco. I also left the lettuce and other toppings off because my kids are not fans. We topped it with what we each liked. My children were not big fans of the biscuit topping but my husband and I were. Thanks for sharing!"

"I thought this was a very good alternative to having regular tacos in tortillas. Only things I changed was adding black beans to ground beef and I put the cheese on the top to let it melt the last few minutes of baking."
