"I halved the recipe but still used the full can of chili. Not very healthy but the family liked it. Would make again."

"I made this tonight. Although we liked it enough to probably make it again, it won't be going into our favorite recipes. It was just okay. After reading the previous comments about too much bread, I used only one 6 oz. tube of biscuits in a 9 x 7 1/2 glass baking dish. It was still too much bread. Between the chili, taco seasoning, and the cheese, it was much too salty for my taste. Next time I'll probably use half a package of taco seasoning instead."

"This was very tasty, but too much bread and not enough filling. I would either use 2 lbs. of meat and 2 taco seasonings or I would use 1 tube of biscuits and cook in a 11X7 dish instead."

"We loved the concept with the biscuits and salsa and my kids liked arranging the biscuits in the pan. We may try it again, but we would cut out the chili and fill in with more of the taco meat."

"Has anybody made half this recipe? Or made it in two dishes and frozen one? It sounds good, but too much for two people. Thanks."

"I diced some onion and jalapeno pepper in with the hamburger mixture and browned it all together. I substituted two cans of the crescent rolls instead of biscuits. Layered one can on the bottom, added the filling and cheese, and layed the second can of rolls on the next layer, then remaining filling and cheese. Served it with the lettuce, tomato's, sour cream and salsa. My family loved it!"

"Many of you said you couldn't find chili Con Carne at your local grocery store. I found it at several stores in the Canned chili aisle. Nalleys and several other brands had it in the 15 oz. cans. chili Con Carne is in smaller letters around the middle of the can. Krogers, Fred Meyer, Safeway and Albertsons all have it."
