Don't be afraid of making this recipe with the long list of ingredients. The biscuits are sooooooo good, tender and flakey and full of hot, cheesy flavor. I'll make those again to use for other recipes! I used turkey and vegetable broth for the chili, and cut the recipe in half. It turned out great and we are looking forward to a meal of leftovers tonight. It was a fun recipe to make Evelyn; and a good payback.
I substituted Buffalo meat because I like it better than Beef, and its much leaner (more lean?) It worked out well. I also threw in some Cayenne Pepper but I'm not sure if it helped or not. Good recipe but I think the onions overpower the meat. I wonder how it would go with black beans instead of kidney beans.
I have only made the Chedder/Jalepeno buscuits...they are awesome with Chili!
I have not made the chili, but I have made the shortcakes several times. I have needed to adjust the ingredients a little each time--to feel v to measurement--but they are always flaky and delicious. They're a little dry which makes them perfect for sopping up soups and chilis.
Very nice. I have been making chili for years and this recipe made for some high compliments, which I am delighted to pass on.
