  3. Stir in remaining 3/4 cup flour to make a stiff batter. Stir in cheese, bell pepper and green onion. Spoon half the batter into a greased 8 x 8-inch pan; top with taco meat. Dollop remaining batter over the taco meat. Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray and let rise in a warm, draft free place 40 minutes or until doubled.
