Loaded nacho bubble up

October 30, 2016

Yes... another bubble up recipe...and I am really excited to share this one with you all... I hereby certify it to be my favorite bubble up I've made 😉 Being that my taco bubble up was my most pinned recipe I wanted to do a spin off type dish, and this loaded nacho bubble up was the perfect addition to all my bubble ups.. I get asked sometimes.. "what is a bubble up" and it's a funny term isn't it, but basically because the biscuits are cooking in the meal the casserole is referred to as a "bubble up" as it rises and the biscuits bake.. It really is a beautiful thing, the addition of those fresh baked biscuits incorporated into so many classic dishes is truly delicious and comfort food at it's best. By using the small 7.5oz biscuits packs you can keep these dishes very weight watchers friendly, this loaded nacho bubble up comes in at 7 freestyle smart points per serving. dscn6498

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Cook ground beef in a pan on stove, drain fat and set aside in a bowl
  3. Cut your 10 small biscuit pieces into 6 small pieces each and spread out in bottom of a sprayed 9x13 casserole dish.
  4. Pre bake biscuit pieces for 12 minutes, remove from oven.
  5. In a bowl mix your ground beef and spices together, add in your salsa and mix well.
  6. Dice your onion, tomato, jalapenos and green onion, place your chips in a small zip lock and crush them up.
  7. Use half of your ground beef mix and spread over biscuit, sprinkle half of your chips on top of meat, then layer half of your onion, tomato and jalapenos and ⅓ cup of your cheese. Repeat with remaining meat, chips, and veggies. Leave the green onion and remaining ⅓ cup of cheese to the side.
  8. Bake in oven for 25 minutes, remove and sprinkle remaining cheese and the green onion on top and return to oven for 15 minutes.
  9. Cut into 6 servings, each serving weighs approx 7-8oz. 7 smart points or 6 points plus per serving.

  11. *Please note if you can not find the 7.5oz dough packs (that come in a 4 value pack) use the regular sized biscuits, weigh out 7.5oz and then cut your dough into small pieces. Also if you don't want it spicy swap the jalapeno peppers for green peppers and use only ½ tsp red pepper flakes.

    This was a really yummy dish! I used ground turkey instead of beef and omitted the onions (hubby isn’t a fan) and it had great flavor. My only negative was that the bottom of the biscuits ended up hard, which made it difficult to cut with just a knife, but it did give that crunch which was nice. I’m not sure if it was because I used a bit smaller baking dish or maybe just need to cut back on the pre-bake time. Still really enjoyed it and will make again!

      Glad you enjoyed it, yes dish size might affect baking time, plus I find ovens vary, some say too cooked some say not cooked enough lol.. either way glad you enjoyed and maybe just try lowering the pre-bake time next time 🙂

        When I scan it, it says 31 for the can. Can you take a pic of the biscuits you used?

    Hi there, if I substituted chicken for beef what would that make it points wise please? Thanks for all these fab recipes!😁

      Hi Sally, sure you can substitute it, you’d need to do the math on the recipe builder, I only know it for the way the recipe states, it would lower the points, 1lb cooked extra lean ground beef is 15SP

    I made this for the second time. I almost didn’t because the first time it was so dry I only ate two portions. But I knew it could be good because all the other bubble ups are, and part of the first time was my error (I forgot the tomatoes and also forgot to add the cheese in two steps). So this time I followed the directions better 😉 and only used 2/3 of the biscuits, only prebaked them for 9 mins, and used a tad bit more cheese. I also used canned tomatoes for some juice. This time it is MUCH better, but still a tad dry. I think next time I’ll only prebake the biscuits for about 6 minutes and not drain the canned tomatoes as much. Or maybe add the whole jar of salsa. I’m determined because I’m a believer in these bubble ups. I’ve made the taco one literally, truly, every single week since I discovered it. Haha. 🙂

      Thanks for all the tips, I think some ovens vary too and one’s take on dry may be fine to another, glad you were able to tweak it to suit you 🙂

    How spicy is it? My kids aren’t big spicy fans

      Not too spicy but you can tone it down fairly easy, leave out the red pepper flakes and jalapenos

    SOOO GOOD! I add a can of corn, green chiles and a tomato to my veggie mix and a can of black beans to my meat. Just recommend baking the biscuits about 15-18 minutes because if not, they will not cook with the added ingredients. All so yummy!
