JoAnne Fluke's Green Chili Cheddar Biscuits

I found this recipe in one of JoAnne Fluke's books, and it sounded good and was easy.  Unfortunately, I didn't have any green chilies, but I didn't realize that until I had already started this, so we had an interesting experiment, which the boys and I loved, and Aaron definitely didn't.  He gave them a 4, and the boys and I gave them a perfect 10.  Each biscuit was 355 calories, and I made 11 biscuits.  I posted the original recipe here, but I didn't add the green chilies, I added a little salsa, a little more sour cream, and some chili powder.  We thought they were delicious.

Cheese and Green Chiles Biscuits

Preheat oven to 425
3 ½ c flour packed down 
1 t salt
2 t cream of tartar 
1 t baking powder 
1 t baking soda
½ c butter softened
1 c shredded sharp cheddar cheese 
4 oz jalapenos 
2 large eggs, beaten 
1 c sour cream 
½ c whole milk
½ c cheddar cheese, shredded 
Mix flour, salt, cream of tartar, baking powder, and baking soda.  Cut in the salted butter (or do this in the food processor.)
Stir in the shredded cheese and the jalapenos.  Then add eggs and sour cream.  Lastly add the milk.
Drop biscuits onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Sprinkle the tops with cheddar cheese.  Bake for 12-14 minutes, until golden brown.

  1. Some of the sisters in the temple bring a dish similar to this, but it is cornbread with green chilies. I don't really care for cornbread, so .... Love mom
