Pretty much the only work on your part is as follows. —>
- Making your chili base. Just your basic standard chili recipe, but it’s a keeper.
- Biscuits!!! It’s our game-changer and clearly my favorite.
- Bake ‘er all up and try not to swoon. Also, please keep in mind this whole three-step process took place in THIRTY minutes. <<< yes.
It’s so fun taking that first scoop in to grab your biscuit and a toooooon of the chili goodness underneath. That second scoop is pretty fun too.
I wouldn’t know about a third, prooooooomise.
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 medium onion, finely diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- 1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 tablespoon agave syrup
- 3/4 cup milk
- Additional milk for brushing
- Make the chili: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown turkey with onion and garlic until no longer pink. Stir tomato paste, diced tomatoes, black beans, broth, and seasonings into chili. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat, season with salt and pepper to taste and keep warm.
- Make the biscuits: In a large bowl, combine flour and butter until crumbly and butter is in pea-sized crumbs. Mix in baking powder, salt, cheese, and agave syrup. Pour milk over top and gently fold until a shaggy dough forms.
- Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead several times until dough just comes together. Pat dough into 1 -in thick round and use a 2-in biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits.
- Pour chili into a greased 9x13 baking pan. Arrange biscuits on top of chili and brush biscuits with additional milk.
- Bake casserole at 400F 18-20 minutes or until biscuits are golden-brown and chili is bubbly. Let cool 5 minutes then serve warm. Enjoy!
