Reviews for Taco Biscuit Bake
"It was good but not great."
"I halved the recipe but still used the full can of chili. Not very healthy but the family liked it. Would make again."
"I made this tonight. Although we liked it enough to probably make it again, it won't be going into our favorite recipes. It was just okay. After reading the previous comments about too much bread, I used only one 6 oz. tube of biscuits in a 9 x 7 1/2 glass baking dish. It was still too much bread. Between the chili, taco seasoning, and the cheese, it was much too salty for my taste. Next time I'll probably use half a package of taco seasoning instead."
"This was very tasty, but too much bread and not enough filling. I would either use 2 lbs. of meat and 2 taco seasonings or I would use 1 tube of biscuits and cook in a 11X7 dish instead."
"We loved the concept with the biscuits and salsa and my kids liked arranging the biscuits in the pan. We may try it again, but we would cut out the chili and fill in with more of the taco meat."
"Has anybody made half this recipe? Or made it in two dishes and frozen one? It sounds good, but too much for two people. Thanks."
"I diced some onion and jalapeno pepper in with the hamburger mixture and browned it all together. I substituted two cans of the crescent rolls instead of biscuits. Layered one can on the bottom, added the filling and cheese, and layed the second can of rolls on the next layer, then remaining filling and cheese. Served it with the lettuce, tomato's, sour cream and salsa. My family loved it!"
"Many of you said you couldn't find Chili Con Carne at your local grocery store. I found it at several stores in the Canned Chili aisle. Nalleys and several other brands had it in the 15 oz. cans. Chili Con Carne is in smaller letters around the middle of the can. Krogers, Fred Meyer, Safeway and Albertsons all have it."
"I added onion and a can of chili no beans and some diced tomatoes(lycopene)I used the flaky type biscuits(the ones that come apart in layers) and divided each in half-voila'-thinner crust.absolutely yummy!!"
"Super easy and my family loved it!"
"I love making this dinner for my boyfriend and I. It's quick and easy and very very tasty!!!"
"You are right this was a very easy recipe, however, I too had trouble finding a can of chili con carne so I just made it with hamburger, taco mix, onions and garlic for the meat mixture. The part that I was not thrilled about was the the thickness of biscuit base. If you use 2 rolls of biscuits, the base ends up being 2-3 inches high in a 9x13 pan and you end up tasting more bread than tacos. I will try this again, but instead I think I will try using crescent rolls laid out on the bottom to reduce the thickness ."
"My family loved this!! I used a can of chili and added an additional can of rinsed and drained black beans. Delicious and simple!!"
"This was VERY yummy!!! and sooooooo simple! Love it! will definitely make it again - only changes i made was I added chopped onion and garlic to the ground beef when it was cooking.. I think you can do lots of variations to this... next time i will top w/green onions too. OH and for the poster the chili con carne - i couldn't find a "can" of it either called that specifically but basically chili con carne means chili with meat - so i just got a 15oz can of chili w/beans by Hormel! worked fine!"
"I'm having trouble finding chile con carne in the store. Can anyone give me advice on what this is and where I can find it?"
"Very easy (especially if you prepare the taco meat mixture up ahead of time). I doubled the recipe and used two 16 ounce cans of biscuits and there was plenty of meaxt mixture to cover everything. My family ate this right up!"
