Chili and biscuits are two Southern staples that are even better when combined into one delicious dish. Serve this quick chili recipe in a biscuit bowl for a new presentation that is also edible.

Yields: Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

2 cups biscuit mix

2/3 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper

1 pound ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped

1 medium-size green bell pepper, chopped

2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans Mexican-style stewed tomatoes, undrained

1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed

2 teaspoons chili powder

Toppings: sour cream, sliced green onions

Garnish: green onions

How to Make It

Stir together first 3 ingredients. Turn dough out onto a surface sprinkled with biscuit mix. Shape into a ball, and knead 3 to 4 times. Divide into 6 portions.

Invert 6 (6-ounce) custard cups several inches apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. (Or use an inverted muffin pan.) Coat outsides of cups with vegetable cooking spray.

Roll or pat each dough portion into a 6-inch circle. Place each on a custard cup; press into a bowl shape.

Bake at 450° for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool slightly; remove biscuit bowls to a wire rack.

Cook beef, onion, and bell pepper in a Dutch oven over medium heat until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomatoes, beans, and chili powder.

Bring beef mixture to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 35 minutes. Spoon into biscuit bowls, and serve with desired toppings. Garnish, if desired.
