"Strange name, isn't cobbler a fruit filled dish?"

"I have made this recipe several times. I used frozen corn not canned and substituted sweet cornbread as a topping instead of the biscuit mix!"

"Very tasty! I had to improvise a little, all I had was a 13 by 9 baking dish and needed to add more biscuit mix, it layered pretty thin with the larger dish but was still very good. I will try this again and add the green chilies suggested below"

"Ok, so 2 out of 4 in this family liked it. The ones that didn't like it said too much biscuit (even after I cut the recipe) which made it dry. I did drain the salsa (it was chunky kind) since I read a lot of reviews that said it was too runny."

"My family of 6 loved this recipe. It was a little watery with the salsa added. I ended up draining some out after cooking. I added a can of black beans with the meat. I will probably add even more black beans next time. There was a lot of biscuit, but we really liked it. I won't change that next time."

"The concept was good and I would make again, but I would reduce the amount of water and milk in the recipe to 2/3 cup water and 1 cup of milk for the topping. I think the batter would be thicker and the filling would be thicker with reduced water amount."

"I made this last night for supper. The flavors of the meat were tasty. None of us likes the large amounts of biscuit on top. About half the amount would have been perfect. The topping ends up soaking up the salsa liquid, which is tasty, but leaves the topping a little dry."

"This recipe is disgusting. The topping is too thick and the meat filling is an insult to true Shepherd's pie. The filling would taste better with maybe some crumbled tortilla chips and a little cheese on top."

"My family and I enjoyed this dish; it was delicious! The only thing I might change next time is the ratio of beef mixture to topping. I would increase the amount of beef or decrease the amount of biscuit topping next time."
