There are endless flavors of pull apart bread, but my family and friends really like this savory Tex-Mex version. We call it fiesta pull apart bread.
I love party food! And fiesta pull apart bread is one of my favorite things to take to a get-together, whether it’s a tailgate party, church potluck, or family get-together.
What? You don’t know what pull apart bread is? Well, if you’ve ever had monkey bread, then you know what “pull apart” bread is. Basically, you chop up biscuit dough into smaller pieces, coat it with seasonings, and bake it. It puffs up into a solid form, but once you take it out of the pan, you can easily pull it apart to eat. It’s easy to make and everyone loves it.
So, here is how to make fiesta pull apart bread!

2 cans of refrigerated biscuits.
1 jar salsa
- My family and I are wimps about hot stuff, but we love not-too-hot salsa. So I use Pace MILD salsa.
1 diced onion
Green and red pepper, diced. (I freeze peppers so I always have some on hand. Here’s how. )
Sliced black olives.
2 cups Colby & Monterey Jack cheese
Pre-heat oven to 350°.
Using kitchen shears or a knife, cut each biscuit into 8 pieces.
Put biscuits into a large mixing bowl and add most of the jar of salsa.
Stir to coat the pieces evenly with salsa. Dump the biscuit pieces into a greased 9 x 13 pan.
Smooth out the pieces and scrape the remaining tiny bit of salsa on top.
Add the onion and peppers.
Next add a layer of sliced black olives.
Finally, top with the cheese.
Bake at 350° for 30 – 35 minutes or until it has browned and puffed up, and the cheese has melted.
And there you go! Savory, cheesy, Tex-Mex deliciousness!!!

Let me know what you think. So, are you a mild salsa eater, too, or do you like the kind that burns your tongue for hours? If so, do you find that drinking milk helps stop the burn? I’ve always wondered but have been too scared to try the hot stuff! 😉
