This tasty Mexican-flavored casserole calls for just six convenient ingredients, so it's a breeze to put together. To make it heartier, you can add a pound of browned ground beef. Or try a pizza variation using pizza sauce, pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. It's sure to be a hit with all ages. -Lanita Anderson, Jacksonville, North Carolina

"In response to punkinseed~The Mexican flavored casserole uses Monterey Jack cheese.

The Pizza variation uses Mozzarella cheese.
Different flavor cheeses for different ethnicities!"

"Re: Picante Biscuit Bake--you can add ground turkey, beef, or pork. Cook it separately then add it when you add the cheese."

"The cheese is the real culprit. 2 cups is quite a lot. You could probably use just one and still have a great recipe. I bet this would be good with pizza toppings, too."

"High in fat and sodium. I'm sure you could cut the fat grams by using low-fat biscuits. I've never purchased low-sodium picante sauce but if you made the sauce/salsa at home you could reduce the sodium."
