Cheddar and Jalapeno Biscuits

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Jamilahs_Kitchen

Fluffy drop biscuits adapted from The Carefree Cook but with cheddar and jalapeños. I subbed sour cream last time I made them because that's what I had and they still came out really good. Cooking time was about 5 mins less for me. You can add anything you want to these biscuits. Sometimes I put in salty pastrami or olives for my hubby.

Delicious recipe! It does take some time to make but it is well worth it!<br/><br/>Bonus: Froze the leftovers and followed the warm up instructions - they were possibly better than fresh out of the oven!
