Expert Tips

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.

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.
