    Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Cut each biscuit into 6 pieces; place in medium bowl. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the taco seasoning mix; toss to thoroughly coat. Set aside.
  • 3
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add peppers and onions; cook 4 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender and starting to brown. Remove from skillet to medium bowl.
  • 4
    In same skillet, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil; add chicken. Cook chicken over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until browned and no longer pink in center; drain. Reduce heat to medium; return pepper and onion mixture to skillet with chicken. Sprinkle remaining taco seasoning mix over mixture in skillet; stir thoroughly to coat. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is heated through. Remove from heat; carefully stir in 1 cup of the cheese.
  • 5
    Spoon hot mixture into baking dish. Top evenly with biscuit pieces. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until biscuits are thoroughly baked and golden brown. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup cheese over top; bake 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with remaining ingredients as toppings.

Expert Tips
