John Wayne Casserole

Find it on Pinterest

Cooks Note: This is SUPER yummy! I have no clue why they call it John Wayne Casserole, I am guessing it is because it has sort of a Mexican/Southwest taste to it and he was a cowboy type? I may be reaching. I did change a couple things though, I did not use tomato slices, I used a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies. And instead of jalapenos, I used additional green chilies (we are not a spicy family). And I have to say, the Bisquick was a pain in the butt, so I have to figure out how to make that easier. But the result was great! Try it, you will really enjoy it.


2 pounds ground beef, cooked and drained
1 (1.25-ounce) packet taco seasoning
4 ounces sour cream
4 ounces mayonnaise
8 ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
1 yellow onion, sliced
2 cups biscuit mix
1 Can Diced Tomatoes (flavored with green chilies), drained
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 (4-ounce) can diced green chilies


1. Heat oven to 325. Brown ground beef and add taco seasoning and water, according to packet instructions; set aside.

2. In a separate bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, 4 ounces of cheddar cheese, and half of the onions; set aside.

3. Stir biscuit mix and water (directions on box) to form soft dough. Pat dough on the bottom and one-half-inch up the sides of an 9 x 13 in. greased casserole dish.

4. Saute' remaining onions and bell peppers until slightly tender.

5. On top of biscuit mix, evenly distribute ingredients in the following order: ground beef, tomatoes, green peppers, onions, chilies, sour cream mixture and end with remaining shredded cheese.

6. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until edges of dough are lightly browned.
