Nothing beats biscuits made from scratch, but when you add cheese, Dan-O’s Seasoning, and Jalapenos, magic biscuits happen! Chorizo gravy also adds the fatty salty, spicy porkiness that brings it all together. The result, Jalapeno Cheddar Drop Biscuits with Chorizo Gravy!
Drop biscuits are a wonderful thing. They’re like the kinds you get at Red Lobster, which are like… good and stuff. Basically, it’s like making regular biscuits with less mess, less measuring, and no biscuit cutter! You simply scoop the batter out and drop it into a well-oiled pan (preferably cast iron). Then they come out to crumbly perfection while you make your gravy.
Chorizo gravy goes great with this recipe. It’s a little meaty, spicy, and rich. You can use a small amount of chorizo as I did (9 oz), or double down for a meatier gravy. I ended up with a lot of leftover gravy, and will probably make some sort of poutine with it! Stay tuned ;) Also, I used a few tbs of bacon fat I had for my gravy, but you can use butter or any other fat you want if you’re making a big batch like me.
So next brunch day, you don’t want store-bought biscuits. You’re making your own and you’re making chorizo gravy! Or just make these biscuits anyway cause they’re incredible and keep for a few days. Enjoy the Jalapeno Cheddar Drop Biscuits with Chorizo Gravy recipe!
