    My family loves this. I add cooked hamburger to this recipe about mid-way thru the baking.

    Well, that's if you want to make it pizza style for a variation.

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

    The Pizza variation uses Mozzarella cheese.

    Different flavor cheeses for different ethnicities!

    OOPS.... It says Mozzarella at the top and Jack on the recipe. It should be Mozzarella me thinks.

    this sounds so good and I agree adding a little ground turkey or hamburger would be good as well but for people who choose not to eat meat I rate it excellent.I will definitly make this dish!!

    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.
