Cheesy John Wayne Casserole

John Wayne Casserole fills some pretty big britches when it comes to casserole recipes. Hearty ground beef, seasoned with Southwest flavors, lots of cheese, on top of a fluffy biscuit layer.

You can tame some ornery appetites and ride off into the sunset if you like after you serve it. Named after the legendary actor, the dish is also affectionately referred to as “The Duke”.
