This is a simple tea time snack on a rainy day..........to warm up and curl cozy. this is the recipe form Paula Deen's T.V show, but I made many changes to the original recipe.......it turned out good...........why not??????? its chili.......
1tube,10ct. Ready to bake refrigerated biscuits(I used only 6 biscuits), Muffin tin, Cooking spray, Rolling pin.
Preheat oven to 350F. Invert the muffin tray and spray cooking spray, set aside. On a lightly floured surface, roll each biscuit into medium sized circle. Place a biscuit circle on the back of each muffin cup and press around the cup to form a bowl shape. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool slightly. Remove the biscuit bowls and set aside.
The measurements given here are for 6 biscuit bowls, I just made chili as per the instructions on the canned Chili Beans.
16,0z. canned Pinto Beans(in hot chili sauce), 1tbs. olive oil, 1 onion(diced), 2 cloves garlic(minced), 1 tsp hot chili powder(as per taste), 1 tbs.Cumin powder, 1/2 cup tomato Ketchup,2 cups water, Salt and pepper to taste,1/4cup celery(chopped), 1/2 cup shredded Mexican four cheese.
Heat oil in a pan. Add onions,garlic and celery and saute until they are soft, then add cumin powder, chili powder,tomato ketchup, water, canned beans, mix well and simmer for 30min. or until a medium thick texture is formed, if you wish to complete the process a bit faster you can also mash the beans, so chili gets thick soon.While its still warm, spoon it in the biscuit bowls and garnish with shredded cheese.............. Serve hot with tea..................
