Fiesta chicken bake:  ( I made this last night)  ( can also use hamburger but I would suggest cooking it with taco seasonings)

What you need:

3-4 chicken breasts.  Cooked and cubed
1 can biscuits ( i do recommend a brand like Grands with this one as they cook better)
1 jar salsa  ( i use store brand mild)
2 stalks green onion  chopped
optional 1 small onion chopped ( my hubby does not like onions)
1 small can black olive ( optional)
1 small pack shredded Mexican cheese ( store brand cheapest)
1 small pack shredded colby jack cheese ( “”)
optional ( 1 small jar melted queso cheese or melt cheese like velveeta, but queso works best)
( optional add ins: green chilis, green pepper etc)

cook the chicken breasts and cut into cubes

cut biscuits into 4 pieces each and in a bowl coat with half the jar of salsa
place the biscuits into a greased casserole dish and spread out evenly
coat the chicken in the remaining salsa then place on top of the biscuits
scatter green onions ( or if adding onions green chilis, black olives etc) over the chicken
sprinkle desired amount of both  cheeses over the top ( make sure it is evenly covered

Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes or until biscuits are well cooked.

Serving additions: sour cream, chopped tomatoes, lettuce or guacamole
