Cook Time: 1 hour

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1   15-ounce can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2   14-ounce cans Mexican-style stewed tomatoes
1   medium green bell pepper, chopped
1   medium onion, chopped
1 lb ground chuck
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Flour for dusting the work surface
2/3 cup whole milk
2 cup baking mix (recommended Bisquik)
2 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt

Shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Sour cream
Sliced green onions (white and green parts)
Corn chips





Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Invert a muffin tin and spray the underside with vegetable oil cooking spray.

Stir together the biscuit mix, milk, and cayenne.  Shape into a ball. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead three or four times.  Divide the ball into 6 pieces.  Roll each piece into a 6-inch circle.

Place 1 dough circle over the back of each muffin cup.  Press around the cup to form a bowl shape.  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned.  Let cool slightly.  Remove the biscuit bowls and reserve.

Brown the ground chuck over medium heat in a Dutch oven.  Add the onion and green pepper and continue to cook until the meat is completely browned and the vegetables are tender. Drain off any fat and discard.  Stir in the tomatoes, beans, chili powder, and salt.  Bring the mixture o a boil, cover, and reduce the heat to low.  Simmer for 35 minutes.

When ready to serve, spoon hot chili into the biscuit bowls.  Garnish with shredded Cheddar cheese, sour cream, sliced green onions, and corn chips.

I found these mini angel food cake pans on, which I planned to use to make the bowls bigger. I am expecting it to be the size of a small cereal bowl. I will let you guys know how it turned out.

I LOVE this recipe and so does my family! I like to add an additional can of dices tomatoes to make it go a little further and not so thick. Also, after browning the meat and onions, I throw everything in a crock pot for a few hours to simmer. It makes great leftovers too!
