    ~Nimz~'s Note:

    These are very nice with just a hit of heat from the chili powder. They are soft and tender inside with a crisp crust.

      These are very, very YUMMY biscuits with a really GREAT TEXTURE-so light and fluffy with a crisp crust. The cheese and chili also make for a really good taste, but for me they were just a little too hot (sent my mouth on fire), so that I cant give them a full 5 stars. I had read the other reviewers' comments so I thought they wouldnt be too hot even though there is quite a lot of chili powder in them, but somehow mine were smoking. Maybe its just the very high quality chili I used (an Italian brand). Next time I will reduce the amount used to 1/2 tbs and then these will be PERFECT! Thanks so much for sharing this winner with us, Nimz. Made and reviewed for Went to the Market Tag Game May 09.

      These biscuits are actually pretty mild in flavor. The butter and cheese in the recipe work well together to produce a very flaky biscuit. I used sharp cheddar and ground ancho chili powder. My yield was 7 very large biscuits that were delicious.
