Biscuit Bowl Chili

Kids love to help make these biscuit bowls almost as much as they love to eat them. For another weeknight meal, fill them with taco-flavored meat and all the fixin's or even your favorite sloppy joe mix. —Cassy Ray, Parkersburg, West Virginia

  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 1 tube (16.3 ounces) large refrigerated flaky biscuits
  • 2 teaspoons cornmeal
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (11-1/2 ounces) V8 juice
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Place 2 muffin tins upside down; spray bottoms and sides of 8 alternating muffin cups. On a work surface, roll or press biscuits into 4-in. circles. Sprinkle both sides with cornmeal, pressing lightly to adhere. Place biscuits circles over greased muffin cups, shaping biscuits around cups.
  • Bake 11-13 minutes or until lightly browned. Carefully remove biscuit bowls from muffin cups to a wire rack to cool.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until beef is no longer pink; 6-8 minutes; crumble beef; drain. Stir in beans, V8 juice, ketchup and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 10 minutes. Serve in biscuit bowls; top with cheese.
