Step 1:

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and spraying a 9 x 13 baking dish with a non-stick spray.

Step 2:

Add 1 tablespoons of cooking oil in a large skillet. Once hot, add the ground beef and onion. Break the ground beef into pieces and cook until no longer pink and the onion has softened. Drain excess grease.

Step 3:

Add the enchilada sauce, Rotel tomatoes, and corn. Mix until well combined then turn off the heat.

Step 4:

On your cutting board, pull apart the biscuit dough and slice it into 8 pieces per biscuit.

Step 5:

Spread dough pieces into the prepared baking dish, then pour half of the meat mixture. Sprinkle 1 cup of shredded cheese over the meat mixture. Next, add the remaining meat mixture over the cheese. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese on top.

Step 6:

Place in the preheated oven and bake uncovered for about 35 to 40 minutes. To check if it’s done, insert a toothpick through a biscuit piece. It should come out clean. Garnish with green onions and cilantro.

Step 7:

Let it rest for about 5 minutes before serving. You can serve it with sour cream if desired.
