Taco fiesta bubble up casserole

September 13, 2015

I’m excited fall is on the way and I can spend some time playing around in the kitchen and creating new casseroles. This layered taco bubble up is simply put…delicious!! πŸ™‚ Makes 6 generous servings at 7 smart points or 6 points plus each. I am sure it can become a new family favorite.

        I have calculated 2 times this recipe and the SP’s is wrong using the current Weight Watchers Canada App. I calculated using Ground Turkey meat 99% fat free which is 9 SP.
        I also calculated it using Ground Beef 99% fat free which is 11 SP not 7.
        Please correct the information as it makes a big difference overall for my dailies. Thanks it takes very good too!

          Hi Linda, sorry but I do not have to correct anything as I have the numbers right on my end, please know I triple check everything and take figuring out the points very seriously, I use WW recipe builder, my fitness pal and do the math on paper, are you sure you are using the right biscuits?? My pack I buy (from the US) is a 7.5 oz pack with 10 small biscuits in it, the whole pack is 17SP, my 1 pound cooked extra lean ground beef is 15SP, and my cheese is 11SP, everything else in the recipe has no points, my App gives me a 7SP point value per serving, exactly as I have it listed .. I am not sure where you think I said the ground beef is 7 points??

            I will have to look for those biscuits..The ones I added into the recipe builder are the Jr. golden layers flaky buttermilk & it came out to 34 points, 7 for taco seasoning & 10 for cheese & 8 for 96/4% ground beef. We just want our members to be getting the correct information. I always tell them to always enter the information in themselves to be sure.

            I agree, but I do state very clearly in my recipe which biscuits I use and in most cases I share a picture, so I am indeed giving the CORRECT information, if they use the wrong size biscuits there is not much I can really do about that

            I made this last night and my son couldn’t believe it was WW friendly – it was amazing! I used 96% beef (11 points) and Velveeta Shreds cheese ( 8 points) and yes, the biscuits you use are 17 points. mine ended up being only 6 points per piece of pure delciousness!! thank you for this (and many) fantastic recipes <3

          Are you calculating the points using raw or cooked ground meat. I used 95% fat free ground beef, raw and have also calculated using 93% fat free ground chicken, raw, and both times I come up with 7Sp.

          Hi Joan, nope.. you might be using the wrong size biscuits, the one I use is a small 7.5oz can, it comes in a 4 pack and I buy it at Walmart in the U.S, there is 10 small biscuits in the pack and the whole tube is 17SP.. my guess is that is where you are getting a higher point value

            Kathy Spencer September 13, 2018 at 2:26 pm

            actually, my Walmart here in Western PA sells just a single tube of the biscuits by Great Value – very tiny tube – 10 biscuits and only 48 cents! Everyone must be using the wrong biscuits.

            Drizzle September 16, 2018 at 12:59 pm

            Yup, those are the right ones.. It is 99% of the time the reason why people are getting a higher point value and some get pretty aggressive about it lol, but those biscuits are indeed 17SP for the whole tube πŸ™‚

        Trying this recipe for the first time. I noticed in your recipe you didn’t clear indicate that the biscuits were to be cut up into smaller pieces although your photo shows this. This could be why their biscuits were undercooked. You are right that the Canadian Pillsbury roll of biscuits is bigger than the 7.5 oz. I only used six out of the 10 biscuits in the roll as a result. This makes the recipe point calculation work out. Looking forward to tasting it!

          Hi Aileen, step 4 in directions mentions to cut each biscuit into 6 pieces πŸ™‚ I too have used the bigger packs here from Canada when I can’t get my hands on the smaller packs, I cut the biscuits open (in half) and then each half into 6 this way I still get lots of small pieces πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoyed it

    Kate, are you using regular fat biscuits in this recipe? Not low fat? I couldn’t find the exact package you described so I bought Pillsbury grands and just cut them up and measured out 7.5 ounces of them. I used about 3.75 large biscuits in the end. My concern is that this is going to be too many points in biscuits and that maybe I’m making a version where each serving is more than 7 sp. Help!

      I never cook with ground turkey, and on my WW App I get the same points roughly for 1lb cooked extra lean ground beef as I do for 1lb cooked lean ground turkey, so i am not sure if there would be a huge difference, I think maybe in the U.S you have the 99% lean turkey? In which case it may knock off some points ..

    First of all, i love your receipes. I made this receipe, its delicious. Are you sure the points/calories are correct? I added up the calories for 1/6 of the 9* 13 and came up with 764 calories. The biscuits alone are 1900 cals. Maybe i was a little generous with the receip ingrediets??

      Hi Sandra, are you sure your using the right size biscuits? Mine are 7.5oz package with 10 small biscuits in the pack, the whole package is 17SP, I know someone else was using the wrong size and had her biscuits alone at 35 SP, that would be my guess in your calculations

      Hi Jess, I never cooked with Turkey as I don’t like it, maybe the WW App can help you better , compare the points for both in there and you might get an idea as to if it will bring down the SP value, my guess is it really wont change it that much

    Oh my goodness…..made this for dinner tonight. It is amazing. I honestly can not believe it is 7sp for one serving. I divided it up in 6 equal portions….so suprised how large a portion was. I lost a great deal of weight on weight watchers a few years back. Have managed to stay within 5# now for seven years. But decided to start up again to loose the remaining 25 I should have done the first time around. This was my first bubble up…can’t wait to try the others!!! Thank you!!!!!

      Hi Stephanie, sorry I’m not too sure why, I can only base it of the products I used, I do indeed input my stuff into the WW recipe builder, also my fitness pal (to get nutri info) and I do simple math on paper.. Sometimes I feel people think I make these things up πŸ˜‰ especially when they leave so many exclamation marks lol .. I can break it down for you .. the points are basically in the biscuits, meat and cheese.. My pack of biscuits is 17SP (whole 7.5oz tube) extra lean ground beef is 15SP and my cheese I used at the time was 8 or 9 points for 1 cup.. 6 servings at 7 points per serving equals 42 points, when you add that up you can see I am about that, not sure where your getting 60 points worth of ingredients..

I am pretty open about my shopping in the U.S and I always give detailed info on the pack of biscuits I buy, and will typically suggest that if you are in Canada to buy the bigger pack and weigh them out so that it is equal to what I use (7.5oz) the biscuits I buy are 17SP for the whole pack.. I’m sorry you didn’t read the instructions correctly but I do feel I am pretty clear..
