Green Chile Biscuits

  • 2 cups all-purpose baking mix

  • 1 cup shredded Mexican four-cheese blend

  • 1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained

  • 2/3 cup milk


  1. Sauté onion in hot oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat 7 minutes or until tender. Add garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Stir in turkey and next 8 ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally; reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Serve with desired toppings and Green Chile Biscuits.

  2. To Make Green Chile Biscuits: Stir together baking mix and remaining ingredients until a soft dough forms. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times. Pat or roll dough to a 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch round cutter, and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450° 10 to 12 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.
