    Made this recipe last night. It was very good. However I didn't care for the floury bisquit flavor. It was very easy to make.

    A bit on the bland side as written and skimpy sized portions, we had this for dinner not as an hors d'oeuvre that's why the 4 stars, However easy enough to customize to your own taste. I made this in a deep dish 9x12 instead a 7x11 and increased the ground beef to 2 lbs, added a 15 oz can of corn instead of the little can, a 15 oz can of pinto beans, 3 minced serrano peppers, 1 lg can of small black olives, 1/2 cup of chopped onion and 3 cloves of garlic run through a rasp. Cheese I don't measure because you just can never have too much of it. There was no need to increase the biscuit mix as it made plenty but I did use whole milk because low or non fat dairy is never in our house. Since we had just this and no salad the 2 of us had it for 3 nights total.

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

    Very yummy but a whole days worth of sodium in only one serving.

    Haven't made it, just wanted to respond to billiebeaver42. At the bottom of the recipe it does list the calorie count per serving...lots!

    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
