Cheddar-Salsa Biscuit Strips Recipe

A few ingredients are all you'll need for these tender breadsticks that get their kick from salsa. "I brought them to a wedding shower and got rave reviews," says Peggy Key of Grant, Alabama. "They're an excellent finger food for parties and equally good alongside soup or chili."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-2/3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Additional melted butter, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour and cheese. Stir in the salsa, butter and water just until combined. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead gently 6-8 times or until smooth.
  • 2. Roll out into a 12-in. x 6-in. rectangle. Cut into 2-in. x 1-in. strips. Place 1 in. apart on a greased baking sheet.
  • 3. Bake at 425° for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with butter if desired. Remove from pan to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: about 3 dozen.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.
