I needed something to go along with the pot of chorizo chili for supper and had just chopped up the last of the jalapenos from the garden. So here is the result…
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup shortening or lard
1/4 cup crumbled bacon
2 Tablespoons minced fresh jalapeno
1/2 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
1 cup milk
Mix together dry ingredients. Cut in shortening or lard with a pastry cutter. Stir in bacon, jalapenos and cheese. Add milk and stir until just combined.
Drop onto greased baking sheet and bake at 450 for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve hot with butter.
