One Pan Enchilada Bake

This is easy and tasty, if you can brown some hamburger and turn on the oven you got this. The star is canned biscuit’s, I don’t usually use them but for this they play well. If you want a real biscuit in a hurry use the frozen ones (tip from my Grand “Nanny”).

This should take about 1 hour total and feed 4 hungry adults. Make it as spicy as you like if it turns out too hot add some sour cream on top when serving. I substituted some items with what I had on hand.


  • 1 pound ground beef (used 85/15 grass feed)
  • 1 can 15 oz. black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 cup corn (used 1/2 bag of frozen)
  • 1 cup enchilada sauce (used spicy V8 juice)
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce (the small 8 oz.can)
  • 1 small can buttermilk biscuits (half size of regular can)
  • 1-1/2 cup shredded mixed cheese (used Jalapeno Jack, Mozzarella, Cheddar)
  • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning (*or substitute spices)

*  Substitution for taco seasoning:  1 tsp. chili powder, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. onion powder, 1/2 tsp. kosher salt and 1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper.

Optional ingredients: 1 finely chopped jalapeno when browning the hamburger


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Brown the hamburger and drain, add jalapeno if using. Add beans, corn, tomato sauce, enchilada sauce and biscuits (cut into 1/4 pieces). Stir the biscuit’s into the mix and distribute equally around the pan. Top with cheese and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Serve with chopped cilantro or sour cream (if desired).


Side note: I sprinkled some “Fire” hot sauce on top before baking (maybe 2 oz.) and it was just right for me. Be careful with the sauce meows Bubbles “It’s like salt” you can’t take it out but can always add it back in.
