Health Twist
For 315 calories and 5 grams of fat per serving, use Reduced Fat Bisquick mix instead of Original Bisquick mix and substitute ground turkey breast for the ground beef.
Serve With
Accompany this hearty, homespun dinner with a crisp green salad topped with raisins and sunflower nuts and, for dessert, warm chocolate chip cookies.
Got the urge to add herbs? Make herb biscuits by adding 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning to the Bisquick mix before adding milk.
Vary the flavors in this stew by using different types of diced tomatoes and frozen vegetables. If you're using Italian-style tomatoes, add 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves with the Bisquick mix.
