Spicy Cheesy Buttermilk Biscuits

Cheesy Spicy Buttermilk Biscuits

Sometime you just need a buttermilk biscuit.

Then other times you need a cheesy buttermilk biscuit.

Annnnnd then there are moments in life in which you need a Spicy Cheesy Buttermilk Biscuit.

Today was one of those days.

I needed super quick, super flavorful biscuits. I took a shortcut and used Bisquick for the base. (And truth be told I was almost out of flour).

And for the wha-BAM factor I used Cabot Hot Habanero Cheddar Cheese. This cheese is not for sissys. It has some serious kick to it and the flavor is outstanding. Because it is so flavorful, I didn’t really have to add another flavoring to my biscuits.

It’s a win/win people.

    Cabot rocks and so does their habanero cheddar. These biscuits are the perfect way to enjoy it (besides of course just eating the whole thing by itself :))
