Chili Biscuits

If you click on the picture, you can see the cheese melted right in among the chunks of salsa and makes a nice addition to any meal, winter with soup or stew and summer with a fresh wholesome salad. 



  • 1 1/2 cups of flour using whole wheat for half.
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp of chili powder (or to taste)
  • 3/4 cup of grated light Cheddar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • or plain milk with 1 tsp. vinegar
  • 1/3 cup of salsa


  1. Gently mix all ingredients together in the order given.
  2. Drop biscuits on to a lightly greased baking sheet.
  3. Bake @ 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

NOTE: I find that sometimes I may need to add a little more milk to make them the consistancy I want to have a soft moist drop. It seems as though the humidty has something to do with it.
