Green Chili and Corn Biscuits

These Green Chili and Corn Biscuits are cheesy and soft, with a little spice and a little sweetness from the corn. They would be a great side to any Mexican meal or chili.

These Green Chili and Corn biscuits are a super easy side to any Mexican dish or chili. You could really add in any mix-ins you want here but the green chilies keep the biscuits moist and perfectly compliment the sweet corn. We haven’t really hit chili weather yet here in Florida and may not ever so I continue to cook whatever they want.


First, start by cutting off your corn kernels. You could definitely use frozen or canned if you don’t have fresh but fresh is always best. southThese literally come together in under five minutes. The secret to any biscuit is to add just a pinch of sugar. I use an ice cream scooper to make sure the biscuits are all the same size.

  2. Although they are indeed the perfect side for a Mexican dish, they look so good by themselves!

  3. Oh man, these look lovely!! There is something so satisfying and comforting about biscuits and butter.
