Cheesy Green Chili & Bacon Buttermilk Biscuits


I'm thrilled to be partnering with Land O Lakes® Butter as part of Kitchen Conversations! My readers know by now that butter is one of my very favorite ingredients. :)

Kitchen Conversations brings together a really great group of food bloggers including my pal Ree from The Pioneer Woman, Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod, Bridget from Bake at 350, Sommer from A Spicy Perspective, Brenda from A Farmgirls Dabbles, Julie from The Little Kitchen, Joanne from Fifteen Spatulas, and Jessica from The Novice Chef. Look for more recipes from this fun group all year long!

For my first recipe with Land O'Lakes, I've developed a buttermilk biscuit that is packed with my favorite ingredients. They are loaded with cheddar cheese, diced green chiles and BACON! Talk about my dream biscuit. These babies are best eaten warm with a nice spread of butter.

Let's take a look at how to make these biscuits.




Here's an idea of the ingredients you'll be using. Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter and the spreadable
Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil are the stars of the show. See recipe below for all of the details.


Start by whisking buttermilk into melted butter. Set aside for just a moment.



Next, you'll add your flour to a large mixing bowl.



Add the baking soda, salt and garlic salt next.



Gently fold in the buttermilk/butter mixture to your dry ingredients.



Add your cheddar cheese!




Your crumbled bacon goes in next.


Last but not least, some diced green chiles.



Give it one last gentle mix and get ready to transfer to your baking sheet.



I used a large ice cream scoop to place the dough onto my baking sheet. It's equal to about 1/3 cup. Anything works, even a spoon.


I pressed each little mound of dough flat like this and shaped into a thick round. Time to bake!


Biscuit heaven!


I mixed some Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil and some of the diced green chiles for spreading onto biscuits… good!



While the biscuits are still hot, brush some of the green chile butter over tops.



Happy, happy biscuits.



I love how quick these biscuits are to prepare. Only about 10 minutes of prep time and they are in the oven. Can't beat that!


They are great for breakfast, tempting for lunch and a must for dinner.


Be sure to split open and try the green chile butter inside. Enjoy!
