Cheddar and jalapenos are a combination that I absolutely adore. Throw a bunch of fresh cracked black pepper into that mix and I’m definitely sold. Oh, and combine all together into biscuit form? Genius.
Baking genius that is. These Cheddar, Black Pepper & Jalapeno Drop Biscuits came to life at our house this past weekend and were devoured pretty instantly after tasting a few bites. While the flavors are indulgent, divine and perfect for a rainy Fall day, one of the other great aspects about these drop biscuits is the baking mix required for this recipe. The baking mix serves as a base and can be used for many other items, including scones and muffins (you can see other examples here). Plus, it’s always a good idea to make extra to freeze and save for another time.
Here’s how to make these Cheddar, Black Pepper & Jalapeno Drop Biscuits:

Flour Mixture for Baking Mix

As the recipe recommends, these are best eaten ‘day of’. My suggestion is to bake them and bring to watch for a football game with friends or for some other type of gathering (if you’re into sharing!).
