Made the Rattlesnake bites today and they are delicious! You didn't specify what size of can for the Rotekl tomatoe & chili - I used a 5 1/2 oz can of Primos Taco sauce instead, it worked. If you use the tomatoes do you chop them? I mixed all the "wet" ingredients, peppers spices, cheese etc together and then stirred in the bisquick. Watch that they don't burn on the bottom I put the 13x9" pyrex pans on a "Bakers Sheet" (I think thats what they are called} I love a recipe where I can make a bunch & freeze for future use. I cut them into 2" x 3/4" pieces and got apprx 60 pieces. I would have given you 5 stars for flavor but dropped you one for the lack of size of the tomato can and instructions that are just a little sketchy . Thanks for the recipe Donna It's a Keeper
This is a perfect party food! Tasty, easy, a bit hit with everyone and makes a big batch. I screwed up by not noticing that the Rotel was supposed to be drained, so I had to bake them for longer to dry them up a little, but the flavor was terrific!
What a fun recipe! It makes quite a batch, (didn't count them). People couldn't stop nibbling them! Will definatly make again for large gatherings.
