Southwestern Biscuits

Southwestern BiscuitsBits of sweet corn, chiles and fresh cilantro add color, crunch and flavor to an always-welcome addition to any meal, the meltingly tender biscuit. Try these biscuits the next time you serve eggs and bacon, a hot bowl of chili or a hearty soup.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1 large egg
1 (8-ounce) can cream-style corn
1 (4-ounce) can diced green chiles
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C).
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Add butter; cut in with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Stir in egg, corn, chiles and cilantro; combine just until mixture holds together. Knead dough 10 times on well-floured surface. Pat dough to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut into 3-inch biscuits. Place on greased baking sheets.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
