Notes or Tips:

  • If you don’t have self-rising flour, create your own by mixing 3 cups flour, 4 ½ teaspoons baking powder, and ¾ teaspoon salt.
  • Using a cheese grater for the butter is the easiest way, but thin butter cubes and a pastry cutter or knives can be used as alternatives.
  • If you lack a biscuit cutter, find a glass or circular item with a 2 to 2 ½ inch diameter for cutting. A knife can also be used for a less perfect shape.
  • Enhance the cheesy flavor by sprinkling a little extra shredded cheese on each biscuit before baking.
  • For a milder version, substitute jalapenos with green olives or omit them altogether.
  • If using jarred jalapeno slices, pat them dry before mincing to remove excess liquid.

Serving Suggestions: 

Enjoy these Cheesy Jalapeno Biscuits as a savory side dish or a delightful snack. Pair them with your favorite soups, stews, or chili for a comforting meal. 

They also make a fantastic addition to a brunch spread or a tasty party appetizer. 

Get ready to savor the warm, flaky goodness of these biscuits and impress your family and friends with this easy and flavorful recipe.

Storage and Reheating: 

To store any leftover biscuits, place them in an airtight container or ziplock bag. Keep them at room temperature for up to two days or in the refrigerator for up to a week. 

When you’re ready to enjoy them again, simply reheat the biscuits in the oven or toaster oven at 350°F for a few minutes until warmed through. The biscuits will taste just as delicious as when they were freshly baked!
