Biscuit Bowl Chili Recipe

Biscuit Bowl Chili Recipe

Kids love to help make these biscuit bowls almost as much as they love eating them. For another weeknight meal, fill them with taco-flavored meat and all the fixin's or even your favorite Sloppy Joe mix. —Cassy Ray, Parkersburg, West Virginia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 tube (16.3 ounces) large refrigerated flaky biscuits
  • 2 teaspoons cornmeal
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (11-1/2 ounces) V8 juice
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place two muffin tins upside down; spray bottoms and sides of eight alternating muffin cups. On a work surface, roll or press biscuits into 4-in. circles. Sprinkle both sides with cornmeal, pressing lightly to adhere. Place biscuits over greased muffin cups, shaping biscuits around cups.
  • 2. Bake 11-13 minutes or until lightly browned. Carefully remove biscuit bowls from pans; cool on a wire rack.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until beef is no longer pink; drain. Stir in beans, V8 juice, ketchup and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 10 minutes. Serve in biscuit bowls; top with cheese. Yield: 8 servings.

"My family loved this recipe. I made my own homemade biscuits though. Next time I will not be using the ketchup in the recipe. I didn't like the flavor it gave it. This was great and so cute served in biscuits with lots of cheese!"
