  23. Lisha @ DeLovely Life

    We make this all the time, at least twice a month. It's a favorite in our house. Super easy and tasty. Thanks!

  24. Kacie

    I made this the other night and it turned out great! I used a 9X13 pan, and cut the biscuits into smaller pieces because I thought the chunks in 4ths were too big. I managed to get about 10 servings from it, but more like 8 if you went back for seconds. I am definitely making it again in the future!

  25. Sharishortcake

    I made this when I had several hungry teenaged boys to feed. They descended upon it like hungry lion cubs! They loved it! I was pleased because it was easy and so very economical---feeding hungry boys isn't always this easy! Thank you!

  26. Rebecca

    Hi! This inspired me to make a version using whatever I had in -I made 2-person serving using chopped, pre-cooked chicken breast, salsa and 1/4 recipe homemade buttermilk scones w cornmeal added. A completely different creature, but very nice!

  27. Adele Forbes

    that is some of the best looking food I have ever seen....great job and thanks for sharing...

  28. Joanne

    This was delicious. This was my first healthy cooking dish of 2012 and was yummy. Will be making again. Love your site!

  29. Anonymous

    I tried making this the other night and the biscuits that were mixed in didn't cook and were a totally doughy mess. The ones towards the top were ok. Did I do something wrong? Were the biscuits supposed to be pre-cooked?

  30. Tisha

    I am making this dish now, its in the oven, i hope it turns out as good as it looks:)

    This looks and sounds delicious..can't wait to try it.

  32. CarrenF

    Do you know what the weight watcher points are for this?

  33. Alea

    The new Points+ for this is 10. It's really good, but very high points. :(

  34. Maliza

    I have made this twice now... the biscuits cooked all the way through for me, I used the reduced fat wheat ones... maybe you didn't cook it long enough?! I would look at the time on whichever kind of biscuits you buy and make sure they are cooking at least 1.5x that length!

  35. Justawallflower

    Just made this for my family. It will become a staple in our recipe rotation! Excellent!

  36. CityGirl4Ag

    Just made these and added a bag of frozen Mexican veggies (corn, beans, onions, etc.) for more volume, and only a few extra points. I also only used 5 of the 8 biscuits in the can, and that was definitely plenty. It cut the points plus value down to 9 per serving. I made six large servings. These don't taste very much like enchiladas, but it is a tasty recipe!

  37. jaclyn

    OMG-how much do I LOVE mexican food! Definitely gonna try this!

  38. Anonymous

    Just made. Only used 6 of 8 biscuits and added 1/2 cup of chopped red onion, 1 whole green pepper chopped, 3 Tbsp of Sriracha, 1 can of diced roasted tomatoes and used one whole large grilled chicken breast instead of turkey. Not sure about the correct translation of WW Points but it is DELISH!

    Made this tonight. My first time ever using ground turkey. Ever. And my super picky eater went back for seconds. SCORE! Thank you! It was delicious!

    Weight Watchers Points Plus Value = 10 points

  41. Chelsea

    Thank you for sharing this recipe. We tried it Friday night, but we added onions and black beans and I'm so glad we did because it was delicious! We will be making that again soon.Thanks again for sharing,Chelseahttp://motherhoodisntfortheweak.blogspot.com/

  42. Mel G

    I used shredded chicken breast in place of the ground turkey, and fresh salsa in place of the tomato sauce. Also added a few jalapeno slices. It was delicious!!

  43. Anonymous

    wow.. I don't think I would want to use 10 points on an average day for this, but maybe something special...

  44. Erin

    Found this through Pinterest- & made it tonight (added onions & taco seasoning to the meat). It was absolutely AMAZING--- worth EVERY single one of the Weight Watchers Points (10 points plus.) You get a gigantic amount of food in one serving. Definitely a new favorite. Thanks!

    I just made this recipe tonight and my family loved it! I used whole wheat reduced fat refrigerator biscuits, black pepper, and added 1 onion and fresh spinach. I cooked the onion with the turkey and added the spinach at the end of the cooking time for the turkey until it was just wilted. I will definitely make this again! Yummy! Thank you!

    Is there noone on here that can make a simple dough? and why was there dough in enchiladas? I swear if Escoffier was here to see this, he would poop his pants.

  47. Jennifer

    I added black beans & seasonings. I also used crescent rolls as I did not have biscuits. It turned out soooooooo yummy!!

  48. Anonymous

    Are the biscuits like Cresent rolls? I'm making it now...using crescent roll dough...hope this is right.

    I made this last night. It went over well with the kids. My small town grocery store didn't carry reduced fat biscuits, so I just bought another kind. It would've been helpful to know what oz. size can to use. I used a 10 oz can and it turned out well, but I may use a Grands size next time, because the picture looks puffier than mine. Quick and easy weeknight meal!

  50. Anonymous

    There are people who don't cook in the "traditional french method" as Escoffier would promote. I think this recipe was geared toward the easy weeknight meal for busy families...also if it would be weight watchers friendly a simple dough would be too many points.

    how much is a serving for 10 points plus points?

  52. Anonymous

    This was an awesome recipe. Thank you for sharing it with us. I added some black olives, green chilies and sprinkled the top with green onions when it came out of the oven. I used your Cafe Rio chicken in the recipe. My husband and I both loved it!

  53. Kay

    Current point system = 9 points per serving

  54. Siversen

    I made this last night w hamburger and I added sliced black olives and some petite diced tomatoes also I used wheat biscuits, my hubby loved it! It was super yummy! Thank you! Also pinned it!

  55. Ashley

    Made these last night adn they are amazing! Recipie was so easy to follow and took no time at all!

  56. carol

    where are the directions for the Bubble Up recipe?

    1. carol

      duh, I figured it out . . . just read!

  57. Michelle

    Hi, I figured this up on my Weight Watchers online page and came up with 10 points total under the new points system...just thought I'd share that with you! Its yum!

  58. Sharron

    Yuk! Made this and it is like eating a biscuit with ketchup.

    1. Kalsey Harrison

      i made this exactly how you said besides taking the fatter route on it by adding more cheese and using the southern biscuits and it was amazing!+

  59. Arlene

    How many servings is this dish? I can't figure the ww points plus without knowing how many servings this is. Can you help me?

    1. Arlene

      Well Duh found it.

  60. Amy

    I just made this tonight and it was amazing :) Thanks!!

  61. meg

    Are the biscuits suppose to be cooked? I thought refrigerator biscuits where the ones that came in a can? I put them in raw and even after 60 min in the oven they were still raw in the middle. We ended up eating with mexi-rice and picking some of the turkey out - threw the rest in the garbage - what a disappointment.

  62. Kelly

    Do you cook the biscuits first, or is it the dough in fourths you're adding to the mixture?

  63. Missy

    I made this for my family tonite and it was loved by all! VERY easy to make (as I made it while talking on the phone). Definitely a keeper! Will try the bubbly bread pizza one Rachel mentioned. I mafe the Million Dollar Casserolea couple if weeks ago and there were no leftovers dang it! Thank you so much and I am so glad I found this website!

  64. Nate

    Awesome recipe i am eating it now. I was wondering if there were any ideas on how to add rice to this?

  65. Karen

    I just made this today. My parents were coming over so thought it would be great to try. I added diced green chilis, onions, corn and fire roasted peppers. It was so good I couldn't believe it. The only thing confusing was it said to use biscuits and to cut in quarters. I used reduced fat croissants and the recipe I had said to spread out along bottom but at the end of recipe it said to stir in with meat sauce. I did the first option and it turned out fine. I cooked for 1 hour though and then let sit for 20 min to set up a bit as it was so juicy. I will definitely make again. It's worth the 10 points !

    Do you know the weight watchers point value of this delicious meal by any chance?
