John Wayne Casserole

– 2 pounds ground beef, browned and drained
– 1 ounce packet taco seasoning
– 16 ounce can large biscuits
– 1/2 cup sour cream
– 1/2 cup mayonnaise
– 8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
– 1 medium onion, halved and sliced
– 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
– 1 medium red bell pepper, halved and sliced
– 4 ounces canned sliced Jalapeno peppers
1. Preheat oven to 350°F and place your oven rack in the center. Spray a 13×9 glass baking dish.
2. Place biscuits in the pan in a single layer and press into the pan, joining them together, pressing the dough halfway up the sides of the pan. Place the pan on a baking sheet and bake the dough in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes; checking every few minutes after 12. The dough should be very light brown where the edges are just starting to get color. Remove from oven and set aside, leaving the oven on.
3. While biscuits are baking, combine the browned ground beef with the taco seasoning and water, and cook according to packet instructions. Transfer cooked taco meat to a bowl and set aside. Wipe out the pan.
4. In a separate bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, half of the cheddar cheese, and half of onions. Stir well and set aside.
5. Saute the remaining onions and bell peppers in the taco meat pan until slightly tender.
6. On top of the baked biscuit crust, layer ingredients in the following order: taco meat, tomato slices, bell pepper and onion mixture, Jalapeno peppers, sour cream mixture, and sprinkle with the remaining shredded cheese.
7. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes or until the edges of the dough are lightly browned and the cheese is melted.
