Weeknight Chili Biscuit Bake

Here’s what you need to do...

Pour olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add ground beef and season with salt, pepper and cumin. Cook over medium-high heat until browned.

Once the ground beef is browned, add the chili beans and salsa. Let simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes.

Now here’s the fun part. You actually bake the biscuits right on top of the chili, in either a 9x13 baking dish or in individual baking dishes.

If you’re making individual servings, place 1 1/2 cups of chili in individual oven-safe containers.
