How to make John Wayne Casserole

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Position the oven rack in the middle, then preheat it to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish.

Step 2: In a pan, put the biscuits in a single layer, pressing the pieces into the pan, joining, and pressing them halfway up the sides of the pan. On the baking sheet, place the pan and into the preheated oven. Bake for about 15 to 25 minutes. Make sure to check the casserole every after 15 minutes. When the dough turned into a very light brown and the edges are just beginning to colour remove from the oven and set aside, keeping the oven on.

Step 3: In the meantime, mix the browned ground beef with the taco seasoning and water. Cook following the packet directions. Then, to a bowl, transfer the taco meat and set it aside. Now, wipe the pan clean.

Step 4: Combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, half of the cheddar cheese, and half of the onions in another bowl until well mixed, then set aside.

Step 5: On the taco meat pan, saute the rest of the onions and bell peppers until a little tender.

Step 6: Layer the ingredients as follow over the baked biscuit crust; taco meat, tomato slices, bell pepper and onion mixture, Jalapeno peppers, sour cream mixture and sprinkle with the rest of the shredded cheese. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 to 40 minutes or until the edges of the dough turned lightly browned and the cheese has melted.
