I saw the recipe for these biscuits on Pinterest, but they are taste tested by my favorite blogger (Brown Eyed Baker) so I knew they would be good!
The verdict? Duh! My husband and even my small child loved them! They are quick and easy, and will definitely be made again and again. I just hope they don't replace my beloved cornbread when it's chili making time..
This is my instagram picture, titled: Life is good. Chili in my Chococat bowl, Sweet Child of Vine Fulton beer, and a copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit.
Drop biscuits. Good and easy!
And because I've never really posted my chili recipe, here it goes from memory... It is a South Beach recipe from long ago. I want to say that I got it from a message board, which is why I haven't been able to find it online anywhere now. It might not be the most authentic, true chili but it is darn good and healthy.
- 1-2 tsp olive oil
- 2 bell peppers, any color, chopped (I usually do a green and a yellow/red)
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 clove garlic, minced
- 1 lb ground beef (these days we substitute lean ground turkey)
- 15 oz tomato sauce
- 1 can tomatoes with green chiles
- 1 can black beans (I use Bush's reduced sodium), drained and rinsed
- 1 can light or dark kidney beans (I use Bush's reduced sodium), drained and rinsed
- 1 T chili powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add the bell peppers, onion, and garlic and cook until softened. Add the ground meat and cook until there is no pink left.
- Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 30 minutes.
- Add dollops of sour cream, shredded cheddar, and any other toppings that you enjoy!
