Chili in a Biscuit Bowl

I made 30+ of these bowls for a chili cook-off at work for the SuperBowl. They are an easy way to do something different with your chili. You certainly don't have to make as many as I did, but you might have wished you had!

Forget the chili recipe they list, of course you'll want to use my "Yours Truly Chili". The bowls ingredients and directions boil down to this:


Vegetable oil cooking spray
2 cups biscuit baking mix (recommended: Bisquick)
2/3 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Flour, for dusting the work surface


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Invert (means turn it over, silly) a muffin tin and spray the underside with vegetable oil cooking spray.

Stir together the baking mix, milk, and cayenne. Shape into a ball. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead 3 or 4 times. Divide the ball into 6 pieces. Roll each piece into a 6-inch circle. Place a dough circle over the back of each muffin cup. Press around the cup to form a bowl shape. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Let cool slightly. Remove the biscuit bowls and reserve.

Top with cheese, sour cream, corn strips, etc!

NOTES: Flour is necessary for dough not sticking to hands! I had great success with two muffin tins turned over on a large baking pan (for easy removal). Also it helps to stagger the bowls on the tins in a zigzag pattern so they don't cook into each other. I apologize that I don't have any pictures of that process. Here's what I gots:
