1 cup Bisquick
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans (plain or with chiles)
1 pound ground beef, cooked and drained
1 cup salsa
1 package taco seasoning mix
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese

Grease a 12 x 8-inch casserole dish.

Mix Bisquick, water and beans. Brown meat and season with taco

seasoning mix; drain. Layer, beginning with Bisquick mix, then meat,

next salsa; top with cheese.Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

Serve with lettuce and tomatoes

I made this and it is shockingly good!

I didn't even have a can of refrieds, so I used a can of pintos and mashed them (refrieds are mashed pintos anyway). I also added a 4-oz. can of diced green chiles to the crust. The crust isn't a hard crust, but is very much like a batter. I even used ground turkey instead of beef and that worked fine.

This is very good! I know it sounds weird with the Bisquick in the bottom layer, but it turns out just fine.

Endlessly adaptable, too. Put some chopped green onions in one of the layers if you want. Or some chopped olives.

Go wild! I believe it will serve 6.

I noticed that the cheese melted quickly so next time I will use 1/2 of the cheese and when it is near done add the remaining cheese. I actually gave the kids some more cheese and salsa to put on the top.
It looked a little on the dry side,(top of the casserole) but the taste was very good~
I was thinking that a small can of Mexi corn or soe chopped Kalamata olives would be good in there as well

A dash of local for every season
