Jalapeño Cheddar Biscuits


When I came across this recipe on Spoon Fork Bacon, I was immediately sold. I’ve made these biscuits a number of times since the first discovery and I am always thrilled with the results. I even made these for my boyfriend’s parents when they came to visit and they were a success.

IMG_1765These could be an excellent addition to your holidays this year. I love them because they are a perfect balance between a biscuit and cornbread. They have that great corn flavor, but with a soft inside. The jalapeños give them a nice kick of flavor and the cheddar makes sure that they stay moist. IMG_1767

Give these a try sometime very soon. You won’t regret it. They may just become your new favorite food. I know they did for me. Eat them with some hearty soup or chili, alongside a holiday roast, or simply as a snack drizzled with some honey.

Enjoy! And happy holidays.
