Bubble Up Enchiladas

04.11.2012 · Posted by Emily (The Culinary Couple)

If you’re on Pinterest, then I suspect you’ve seen a version of this recipe. Bubble up enchiladas. Bubble up pizza. Bubble up chicken pot pie. The approach is the same, and so easy.

Combine and cook a filling of your choice, i.e. ground turkey with onions, black beans, corn, enchilada sauce, and tomato sauce. Then cut refrigerated biscuits into fourths and add them to the pot.

Spread the mixture into a greased casserole dish, and bake for 30 minutes. Top with shredded cheese, and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Garnish with green onions, and serve with a side of guacamole.

Simple and satisfying weeknight dinner!

Also? The texture is perfect for our big little eater (who always curls his toes while eating).

(Print Recipe)

Serves 6.


  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 (10 oz) can enchilada sauce
  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (16 oz) can refrigerator biscuits
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar or Monterrey Jack cheese
  • green onions and guacamole for topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8×11 casserole dish.
  2. In a large pot set over medium heat, saute the onion and brown the ground turkey, about 5 minutes. Add beans and corn. Stir in a can of enchilada sauce and a can of tomato sauce. Cut the refrigerated biscuits into fourths and add them to the mixture.
  3. Spread everything into the greased casserole dish. Bake for 30 minutes until the biscuits are cooked through. (Use a tooth pick to check the biscuits.) Take the casserole out of oven and sprinkle cheese on top. Bake an additional 15 minutes. Let it stand for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with green onions and serve with a side of guacamole.

  1. I haven’t caved on pintrest yet (waiting til the summer when I have more time to browse) – so this is the first I’m hearing of the bubble up phenomena! very neat!

  2. I thought I had successfully avoided (and moved past) the “bubble up” phenomenon that’s all over Pinterest, and now you have to go and post about these delicious looking enchiladas! Sigh. Adding them to my meal plan for next week….

  3. Thanks for the ping!

  4. Looks great! I love how you added some black beans to these. Your little big eater has the same high chair as mine, and I think my little man will love this!!! He looooves beans:)

  5. I’ve made this a couple of time’s now, and it’s one of my husband’s favorites! I’ve added corn and a chopped onion (cooked with the turkey), and I’m dying to add black beans some time, yours looks delish!
