Very tasty but way too salty. I did add a half teaspoon of sugar (I made a half batch) and used frozen corn. Next time I'll try them with about half or less of the salt. Also, took almost double the stated time to bake.

Not sure if I made these right, but they came out ok. I had to add more milk, because the peppers and corn weren't mixing in. Then is was too sticky, so I had to add more flour. I used lactose free milk and cheese and they still tasted pretty good. My husband really likes them and suggested they need bits of cooked bacon and some tomato sauce. I would probably make these again, as they are a pretty easy biscuit recipe. Maybe, I was supposed to add spicy peppers. A.

Instead of bell peppers try canned green chiles. Mmmmm... Since they are already cooked you don't even need to sautee them unless you want to do it quickly (to help incorporate the butter).

These southwest style biscuits are very good. I added a teaspoon of sugar and they came out great. Quite an odd name, but good nonetheless. Thanks for the recipe!

These were very good my husband really like them , I did do a few changes I added green chilies, some green onion, a little garlic just a pinch and a little sugar. I will make them again, easy and good.

These were fine as-is, but I wish I'd halved the recipe and subbed green chiles for the bell pepper as other reviewers had. That would have taken these biscuits to a solid 4 stars.

These are truly delicious! I used gruyere cheese and a bit more corn-- also a little more milk to keep the mixture sticky enough. The cooking time is more like 18-20 minutes; just keep an eye on them and be sure you let them cook until golden. They are so good with chili plus, you can store them in tupperware and reheat within three days.
