Random Recipes!

So, in the past week, I started a part-time/flex job, got bumped up to Resident Assistant, and now have a huge mess of a house!
I'm really trying to keep my sanity,  and this recipe is helping at dinner time.  Talk about easy leftovers! !


Bubble Up Enchilada:

You will need-
2 cans biscuits, regular NOT buttermilk
1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 green bell pepper
1 14 oz can Black Beans or Red Kidney Beans,  drained
8oz mozarella cheese,  shredded
Enchilada sauce (I prefer the kind made with a packet,  in which case you will need tomato sauce), packet or 8oz can
Medium bowl
9x13 baking dish

Here's what you gotta do-
*Preheat your oven to 350
*brown your meat,  drain off any fats
*Open your biscuits, and cut them into quarters. Toss these into the bowl.
*Make your enchilada sauce according to the package, and add to bowl of biscuits  OR  open up that can and dump it over the biscuits.
*Add meat to mixture
*Chop up that bell pepper, and add it in there, too
*Empty out the can of beans while you're at it!
*Throw a handful of cheese into mixture
*Mix gently with a spoon, preferably the large plastic kind
*Pour into baking pan; it's up to you if you wanna spray it with non-stick something. Make sure it's relatively even in the pan
*BAKE FOR 25 MINUTES!!
*Pull out and add cheese. I usually coat the top with cheese, because my family likes it really cheesy.
*BAKE AN ADDITIONAL 10 MINUTES!

Pull out of oven, and you're done.

Here is the end result!! I didn't have my phone on me beforehand to take the 'during cooking' photos. 

FOR REHEATING PURPOSES:

Pour about 1/8c of water on it, cover it with foil, and put your leftovers in the oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.
The water will keep it from getting too dry, with the foil helping out with the condensation.

This will feed a family of four, with a single serving a piece, for two meals. 
Add whatever you want to it for sides. We usually have salad.
