Mexican Bubble Bread

Mexican Bubble Bread is a southwestern favorite that blends cheesy bread with traditional Mexican seasonings. Though it is called Mexican Bubble Bread, this easy recipe is typically made with refrigerated canned biscuits. Green chiles and jalapenos add some spicy heat, and Mexican cheeses, including Asadero and Monterey Jack, provide a deliciously Mexican flair to this dish.

Mexican Bubble Bread is a great accompaniment for other classic Mexican and Tex-Mex foods, such as chili or albondigas, and it easily pulls apart into delicious, bite-sized pieces.
