  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef. Drain the beef, and mix in the zucchini, onion, garlic, and marjoram. Cook and stir until vegetables are tender. Mix in the salsa, tomato soup, and corn. Season with 1 teaspoon salt. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and garlic powder. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the Cheddar cheese, sour cream, and milk. Spread over the beef mixture in the baking dish.
  4. Bake covered in the preheated oven 25 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

The zucchini's optional. It tasted great with or without it. I've made it with ground turkey and it's great that way, too. Also, if the biscuit topping is too thick to spread, just add some m...

This is a great recipe and fairly healthy. I didn't bother with the zucchini or the marjoram but did use some cumin and a little paprika. Also, if you're pressed for time try using a jiffy cor...

This recipe sounds good on paper, but fails to excite. I doubled the zucchini and onions and kept everything else as is. I might suggest it could be renamed "Ketchupy Pantry Pie". I agree it ...

This was just ok for me. Pretty bland, but could be good spiced up a bit. I try to make by the recipe first. Little too much toppping for the amount of stuff. If I make again, will tweak wit...
