Driving cattle is the kind of hard work that creates a serious appetite. That’s why “farmhouse cuisine” boasts so many hearty and satisfying dishes. The recipe below is designed to satisfy the big appetites of cowboys and cowgirls, but us regular city folk love it just as much.
This dish is meaty, spicy and cheesy, and has a flaky biscuit base layer that’s impossible to ignore. It’s simple to prepare because it uses a biscuit mix for the crust, which is topped with seasoned ground beef and a layer of creamy, chile-studded sauce and lots of melted cheese. Whether you work on a ranch or in a high-rise office building, this is a meal you’ll be happy to sit down to at the end of a day’s work.
