This week when I went grocery shopping I had the what-to-cook-for-dinner blues.  Seems like this happens a couple of times a year when I get completely uncreative for dinner.  The kids give the same suggestions.  Though tasty and nutritious, we just get in a rut.  So, I did a quick run through of some recipe books and came across a long forgotten recipe.  So long forgotten that I don’t think I’ve ever cooked it for the kids!  I’ll link you to the original recipe at Pillsbury, but I’m providing my options for the blog.  All I can say is the kids could not rave enough about how AWESOME.  how DELICIOUS.  how AMAZING.  how this was the BEST.  DINNER.  EVER.  Seriously.  I felt like Guy Fieri  (without the crazy hairdo) or Paula Deen  (without the white hair).   Even the picky kiddo had seconds.  Yeah.  I said it.  Even the picky one.

Fair warning:  if you are watching carbs, it’s not the recipe for you.  BUT.  If you want your kids to kiss your cooking hands, wash the dishes and eat seconds…..enjoy.  I sure did.

MEXICAN FIESTA BISCUIT BAKE 

We are not big olive fans and my kids aren’t big pepper fans, so I left those out.

2 Cans Grands biscuits, cut each biscuit into quarters

1 can refried beans

1 can black beans

1 can red kidney beans

1 block cheddar cheese, shredded

Jar of salsa

Place butter into 9X13 dish into preheated oven @ 375 until melted

Place biscuit quarters in pan

Spread out refried beans or use a spoon and drop it around

Pour  drained beans onto biscuits

Pour Salsa over beans, biscuits

Bake @ 375 for about 45 min

Sprinkle shredded cheese ontop of biscuit bake and let it melt

Serve with sour cream (optional)

May you receive the adoration and rave reviews I was blessed with!
