Jalapeno Cheddar-Jack Drop Biscuits

This is a great recipe! The flavor of the biscuits is delicious! You can pump the heat up or lower it down. If you want less heat remove the ribs and seeds from the jalapenos or you can double the cheddar and leave out the pepper jack. 

To increase the heat leave the seeds and ribs in the jalapenos, and you can also add more jalapenos. I caution you about this because these are already pretty spicy! It’s a simple recipe that you can easily throw together in a pinch. At least for me, these are ingredients that I normally have on hand so it was no big deal. 

The biscuit mix can really be anything I just found this particular brand to be dirt cheap so I grabbed it up at .46 cents. You can’t beat that. I served these with Frito pie which was a great combination.

  • 1 package of biscuit mix
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. diced jalapenos
  • 2 ounces grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 ounces grated jalapeno pepper jack cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Grate cheese and dice jalapenos you may want to remove the ribs and seeds from the jalapenos to low the heat level, then add them to a mixing bowl along with the milk and mix well. To the liquid add the biscuit mix and mix well, but do not over mix or they will not be fluffy. Once it’s all well mixed add the salt and mix again.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and add twelve equal spoonful’s of batter to the parchment paper. Bake on 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until they are done. Watch the biscuits closely so that they will not overcook or burn.
