Chili Cheddar Biscuits

"An outstanding biscuit recipe that is especially good with Tex-Mex inspired meals like chili con carne or a spicy beef stew. Or, just split and stuff with scrambled egg and ham or bacon and you've got a mean breakfast!"

Ready In:




  • Make biscuits: Into a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and the salt; add the butter and blend the mixture until it resembles coarse meal.
  • Stir in the cheddar and the chilies; add the sour cream and stir the mixture until it just forms a soft, but not sticky, dough.
  • Knead the dough gently for 20 seconds (about 6 turns) on a lightly-floured surface.
  • Roll or pat it out ½ inch thick and with a 3 ½ inch cookie cutter, cut out 8 rounds.
  • Bake on an ungreased baking sheet in the middle of a preheated 430F oven for 15-17 minutes, or until they are golden.

    Fantastic Biscuit. I have always had problems making biscuits, but these were great. I will admit that I didn't use the minced jalapeno, I just used a little pepper sauce. I will use the minced jalapeno next time though, I just didn't have any in the house this time. This recipe made 10 very large biscuits for me.

    Evelyn, these were sooo good! I served them with fried shrimp and potato hash for an easy delicious meal. My son and I loved the addition of the jalapenos.


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
